Private Lessons (Ukulele or Guitar): ($115/month - 30 minute lesson)
45 and 60 minute lessons are available.
When it comes to the mastering of a fretted instrument, one must first conquer the basics. Learning music theory is like learning grammar in grade school. Once you get a handle on the basics, your ability to truly express yourself through the instrument will magnify infinitely. Helping students learn melody, harmony, chord progressions, riffs, licks and much more will empower confidence into any person, young or old, who desires to pursue the language of music.
Music is a hobby that lasts a lifetime. Becoming a musician is a skill set that can take you around the world. Before we dive into the beginnings of music an music theory, we must first learn how to care for and maintain the instrument. We must learn how the pieces all work together, and we must learn how TIME is your friend and NOT an enemy. Musicians are always in constant pursuit of being master of tempo and time! We must also learn how to put hands into all of those awkward, funny positions that make the instrument sound good!
CRASH COURSE GROUP UKULELE/GUITAR LESSONS (AGES 6 AND ABOVE): Stoney Dennis, instructor
These small crash course group lessons are perfect for the new beginner. The fun never ends as you learn to create music with other students. You will learn to master basic chords, scales, and beginning music theory that will start you on the road to a solid foundation on the ukulele or guitar.
You will learn sing-along songs, and basic principles of music so you can begin gaining confidence on how to express yourself through music and the instrument that you are called to play. Our crash course sessions will be based on a curriculum that will have you wanting to learn more and more about the beauty of music as a language. It is the perfect setting to join your child in a class...learn together! At the end of the session, we will have a group continuation option to finish off the semester so you can gain even more skill on your instrument.
The main goal for both our private and group sessions is to have the student understand that music is a universal language that can be written, read, or spoken anywhere in the world.
