All classes and private lessons are held once per week, weeknights and Saturday mornings. Classes are also offered during the day for preschoolers and home schoolers.
Private lessons are offered for piano students. We have found that private one-on-one instruction allows students to progress at their own pace and gain the best understanding of musical techniques. Students can start private lessons any time of the month or year so there's no need to wait to get started.
Private instruction is the best way for anyone to learn how to play an instrument. The one-on-one instruction means that students are given instruction that best suits how they learn. Private lessons also mean that they are able to learn the type of music they personally are most interested in. Also, with private lessons the teacher can focus 100% of their attention on one student to ensure that things such as hand positioning, posture or understanding of a particular concept are correct. If a student has a particular difficulty in one area, I can work on it without hampering the progress of a class of students and alternatively if a student is excelling in one area, the teacher can move on.
Before age 5 we recommend our group MusikGarten program. I am a certified MusikGarten instructor and children can begin learning about music at a very early age. Musikgarten's philosophy is steeped in this understanding. Movement and music activities are perfect for child development. Music immerses the child in language, evokes movement, stimulates the brain and fosters physical coordination - all in a group setting that builds community.
