What kinds of classes do you offer?
- Child Piano Lessons
Younger students are brought in to the studio for piano lessons and I promote a love of music and personal development. When students learn to play a piece or favorite song, they feel joy and a sense of accomplishment. This accomplishment is achieved through discipline and concentration. Children who study piano have success in education especially in math and reading. This has been proven by research studies.
- Adult Piano Lessons
Adult students find piano lessons give them a sense of personal growth and stress relief. Many students discover a talent for humming and singing to the music. What a wonderful way to combine both the voice and the piano. Many adults find they can fulfill a wish long delayed or resume playing after a long hiatus. Each and every student leaves having gained an important ingredient to life – happiness!
- Music Theory lessons
Theory lessons are important in providing a better understanding of the vital components that make up music. These lessons are separate from the theory discussed during piano lessons and are taken by more advanced students of music. They are more in-depth and give a better foundation to the understanding of music.
Theory lessons are 30 or 45 minutes long and the first lessons can be trial lessons before you decide to commit. They are charged at the regular rate. Everyone starts with Basic Rudiments. There are three levels of theory lessons:
- Basic Rudiments
- Level 1 Rudiments
- Level 2 Rudiments.
How often and how long are the piano lessons?
Lessons are given weekly and are 30, 45, or 60 minutes in length. Students have regular and focused lessons but they are fun and enjoyable as well. The first lessons can be trial lessons to see how you feel about the idea before you commit. They are charged at the usual rate.
