Areas of Instruction
Our piano instruction is innovative and multi-faceted. The private/group lesson approach makes piano lessons rewarding. Private lessons offer individualized instruction. Group lessons in our state-of-the-art digital piano lab offer instruction in ensemble playing, ear training, keyboard harmony, music theory, improvisation, and music appreciation. Performance classes offer opportunities for students to perform for one another and gain confidence in an encouraging, supportive setting.
Vocal lessons involve private, specialized instruction suited to the student’s specific vocal development. Lessons will also focus on music reading, diction, sightreading, ear training, and performance skills as much as possible, given the ability of the students.
GuitarOur guitar instruction is stylistically comprehensive and covers reading classical, tablature, and chart notation. Technique is offered for various strumming, picking, and finger styles. Music fundamentals are taught as well, including an understanding of scales, keys, and the use of chord progressions. Encouragement and assistance in songwriting and composition offer creative expression and motivation for students.
