We are happy to help you become the pianist you want to be. Our piano teachers teach formal lessons. They will show you the fundamentals of sight reading, technique and theory, but they will also incorporate your favorite songs into your lessons.
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 or until the teacher will give advice when it’s the right time to invest on a piano for your child. Re chord study. For young students we discourage chord playing at an early stage. Music is a language and young students should learn the language from the basics. If really needed, we accept special cases as long as the student has a background in piano playing.
(CLASSICAL, ACOUSTIC, ELECTRIC & BASS)
Our guitar teachers teach classical, acoustic and rock, blues, bass, and electric 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 as well as our curriculum and testing program. Who can join? At least 7 years old and older, teens, adults, seniors.
