Levels Program (youth and adult programs available)
Private Lessons and Group Learning go together.
Individual Instruction allows students to improve their technical skills and musicality. Teachers customize an appropriate curriculum for each individual student to help them accomplish their musical interests and goals. Students will be considered for the program if they are mature, able to follow directions, and ready to follow the practicing commitments set by their teacher. Both in-person and online options are available.
Group Classes complement individual instruction by covering more of the elements that can be taught and experienced in a group setting such as listening, reading and writing skills, music theory, and applying what is being learned in private lessons to an ensemble setting. This will also promote student collaborations, group work, ensemble playing, learning from piers, leadership, and teaching experience for more advanced students, and it’s really fun to learn and play music with friends.
