Helping students reach their greatest potential
Music is a language
Within music, like any language, there are many basic skills which must be mastered prior to advancing to more complex applications. All areas of musicianship - theory, technique, formal analysis, harmony, ear-training, sight-reading and performance will be covered in the studio. A well rounded musical education helps students define for themselves what music means to them.
Students Are Unique
All students learn at different rates of speed. No two students are exactly alike. Even brothers and sisters within families differ radically in motivation and temperament. In the studio, students are approached as individuals and are challenged according to their own unique potential. Music is not easy, and may not always be "fun." However, given sufficient time and structured practice, it does become enjoyable to master the many different aspects of this art.
Practice Makes Perfect
Adequate, scheduled practice time on a daily basis is the surest guarantee that the student will experience consistent progress at the piano. Learning the necessary skills to become proficient at the piano will not occur by simply going to lessons. It takes committed practice on a daily basis during the week to put skills, covered at the lesson, into motion.
Parental support is an extremely important factor in musical training. Students whose parents take an active and honest interest in their child's progress tend to be more enthusiastic and productive. With commitment to learning the art of music comes the decision to practice on a regular basis. Consistent progress results in pride, satisfaction and a sense of accomplishment!
