Your lessons will revolve around your personal musical interests and goals. If you have ever taken lessons before and felt like they were going nowhere it was probably because the teacher was winging it at each lesson. Not here, we take detailed notes on all of our students lessons so that when you arrive for your next lesson we can pick up right where we left off.
We believe that lessons are just part of the learning process. We strongly believe that performing plays a huge role in the development of musicians young and old. Because of this we offer various performance opportunities to our students throughout the year. You will find that these performances help with student goals as well as with their self esteem.
