Piano and Keyboard Lessons - Private or Group Lessons
Our school offers piano lessons for students of all ages and abilities from beginners to advanced students. We offer every style of piano lessons from classical to jazz and pop. We have students who want to play just for fun and the serious minded student. We start piano lessons from age 5 onwards. Before age 5 we recommend our group preschool Song and Dance class. Our private piano lessons are one-on-one instruction and lesson lengths are 30 minutes, 45 minutes or 1 hour. Our group lessons are 50 minutes and have a maximum of 8 students per class.
Voice Lessons - Private or Group Lessons
We have many students who take voice or singing lessons at our school. Students sing all kinds of music from their favorite artists to classical arias. Just a sample of what a student will learn in singing lessons includes how to breathe properly, how to increase their range, proper pitch, how to project and stage presence. Our school offers two performance opportunities each year with our Christmas recital and spring recital.
Guitar Lessons - Private or Group Lessons
Our guitar lessons include acoustic, electric and bass guitar. We have an excellent guitar teaching staff and teach guitar lessons in everything from rock to jazz, classical to pop. Typically a student would be 8 before starting guitar lessons, due to their hand size, but some younger students start with a junior sized guitar. Our private guitar lessons are one-on-one instruction and lesson lengths are 30 minutes, 45 minutes or 1 hour. Our group lessons are 50 minutes and have a maximum of 8 students per class.
Violin, Fiddle, Viola, and Cello Lessons - Private Lessons
Our strings program offers private instruction in violin, viola or cello. Our violin lessons start as young as age 5. Due to the size of the instrument, most cello lessons start at 10 years of age or older. Basic restrictions are usually due strictly to the size of the child – e.g. hand size for piano or lung capacity for brass and woodwinds. Our private lessons are one-on-one instruction and lesson lengths are 30 minutes, 45 minutes or 1 hour.
Flute Lessons - Private Lessons
Our private flute lessons generally start at age 7 and older. Our flute lessons are offered in 30 minute, 45 minute or 1 hour lengths. Our flute students perform in our Christmas and spring recitals.
Saxophone & Clarinet Lessons - Private Lessons
Our private saxophone and clarinet lessons start from age 8 onwards. Earlier than age 8, a student typically does not have the lung capacity and strength to handle these instruments. Our saxophone and clarinet instructors are proficient on both instruments so a student can start with clarinet lessons if they wish and switch to saxophone lessons without having to change instructors. Saxophone lessons and clarinet lessons are offered in 30 minute, 45 minute and 1 hour lengths.
Trumpet Lessons - Private Lessons
Students for this instrument usually are ages 9 or older as they need to have developed a great lung capacity. We can help students enhance their skills for their school band program or develop advanced skills to become soloists.
Drum Lessons - Private Lessons
We offer a wide variety of drum lessons or percussion lessons. Most of our students learn on a drum kit. We have both male and female students and typically do not start drum lessons before age 8 as students need to be able to reach both the pedal and the high hat. We do have some younger students but suggest they come in for a trial drum lesson to see if they are big enough to get started. Drum lessons are taught on a drum kit in our studio but students are able to get started practicing at home on practice pads before purchasing or renting a drum kit. Our drums lessons stress proper technique so students become good drummers quickly.
