Private Music Lessons
Our piano teachers have experiece teaching from very young students up to retired adults, and they teach a variety of styles from classical to popular music. Whatever your favorite style of music, our teachers are happy to help you become the pianist you want to be. You will learn the correct technique, fundamental music theory, and sight reading. You do not have to have a piano at home to take lessons. A simple full size electronic keyboard will suffice for the first 6 months. Our piano teachers have warm personalities and enjoy sharing their love for the piano with you.
We teach a variety of vocal styles, including classical, musical theatre, opera, popular music, and song writing. A portion of lesson time each week is devoted to exercises that are designed to help students improve their vocal range, breath control, vibrato, tone production, enunciation, projection, and more. Students will work on expanding their repertoire, selecting their own songs, with the teacher's help and recommendation.
Our guitar teachers teach rock, blues, metal, country, bluegrass, and classical guitar lessons on electric and acoustic guitars. Beginner students can expect to work on chords, simple songs and melodies, sight reading, and theory. We balance musicianship and fun by making sure that each lesson you are challenged with a new technical or theory concept, but always end with something fun such as your favorite riff or song. We use a variety of guitar method books to accomplish this and encourage students to bring CDs or their iPod to their lesson to learn their favorite tunes.
Ukulele is a great choice of instrument for younger children who are interested in learning a stringed instrument. With two fewer strings than the guitar and a shorter fretboard, it can be easier to play. Its nylon strings are also easier on the fingers. Our ukulele teachers will personalize their lesson plans to suit your learning style and preferences.
Our violin teachers are well qualified to teach from beginners up to advanced and adult students. We also have violin classes for children as young as 3 year old using the Suzuki method. Teachers will also work with students who wish to join the school or local orchestra to prepare for auditions.
Brass instruments have long been established as an important voice in chamber and orchestral music. They are also fun instruments to learn. Our teachers can show you how to make these sounds and incorporate them into your own music. Every student gets their own tailored lesson plan based on their goals and needs.
We find that piano, guitar, and violin (besides voice) are our most popular instruments. If something else is your style, say, trombone, bass, etc. we'd be happy to help. Just contact us for more information.
Ballet is the basis of all dance. It is crucial for the development of your dance skill set. Our ballet classes focus on developing a solid ballet technique with emphasis on correct body placement, alignment, proper use of turn out, coordination of the upper body (epaulement), and use of arms (port de bras).
Jazz Dance appeals to everyone because of its energy, variety, and vitality. Jazz Dance classes explore contemporary and classic jazz dance that draws inspiration from a wide range of music including jazz, swing, blues, pop, soul and funk, trip-hop.
In this fast-paced and fun class students will use hip hop technique to develop their coordination, rhythm, flexibility and self-expression. If you are new to this style, or just looking to "freshen" up your dance moves, this class is for you! Feel comfortable and confident as we dance along to today's hottest music.
