Private Lessons

 

Suzuki Violin and Viola

Ages 4 and up

Suzuki lessons and philosophy is the backbone of our school.  Each student is enrolled in one private lesson and group class per week.  Our Suzuki teachers are certified in the Suzuki method and fully believe that every student, given the right tools and taught appreciation, is capable of making beautiful music to share with the world.  Curriculum is based on the framework that the Suzuki method provides, with supplemental repertoire and technique added to round out the student's musical development.

 

Traditional Violin and Viola

Ages 4 and up

Our traditional violin lessons still rely on the solid base of Suzuki repertoire, however also focus on supplemental repertoire and technique that enables students to complete Royal Conservatory exams.  Exams are not required to study with us, however some students may choose to enroll in RCM exams to complete high-school credits and to provide valuable insight to their musical development.

 

Piano

Ages 4 and up

These aren't the piano lessons you grew up going to!  While our piano lessons still rely on establishing a solid foundation of technique and repertoire, our focus is encouraging a love for the piano and music in each student. Lessons are structured with children in mind, allowing flexibility for each student's musical needs to be taken care of.  Our curriculum rolls musical skills like theory, rhythm and pitch into one lesson, so your child learns what they need to succeed and progress to the next level.

 

Voice

Ages 4 and up

Singing is innate and the most natural music ability in all of us, and many children are drawn to singing lessons because they're already singing at home.  Singing lessons teach correct posture, breathing technique and delivery to students, allowing them to use their natural voices to the best of their ability and enjoyment.  Through repertoire that is familiar to students, such as pop and folk songs, as well as classical and traditional songs, students learn to memorize and perform while having fun in their individual abilities and are confident and poised.
