Areas of Study
Piano lessons are offered for levels beginner through advanced in both classical and popular styles. Just as ballet is the foundation for all dance, piano is the foundation for all music.
No matter which particular style a student wishes to study, his or her training will be structured around a solid foundation in classical technique. This does not necessarily mean classical pieces, per se, but classical repertoire will be included in all styles of study.
Weekly lessons include: scales, sight-reading exercises, theory, repertoire (both classical and popular), as well as personal composition if desired. Students are encouraged to keep their own practice log at home, as daily practice is essential for the developing musician.
Students may elect to study electric or acoustic guitar, and many styles will be explored. Both note-reading and tablature theories of reading will be emphasized, as well as becoming proficient in reading, forming, and understanding the various chordal and strumming patterns, which are essential for any budding guitarist.
Whether you want to be the next Jimmy Page, or Jimi Hendrix, we can help you find your inner rocker!
Or for the future Taylor Swift, we can help you hone in on your songwriting skills.
No matter what you choose to do with your guitar study, it is a skill and instrument that will be with you throughout your entire life!
