Typically, a child who is beginning between the ages of 5 and 6, we encourage the child to enroll in our Let's Play Music classes. If the child has previous private lesson experience, the parent and teacher will decide if private lessons are a better fit for the child. The student (and parent if student is young) must be committed to daily practice and the student must be ready for the rigor of private lessons. Placement will be determined during an interview with the student and parent (if applicable).
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. Before we dive into the beginnings of music and 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!
The students are invited participate in two recitals each year: winter (late November or early December) and spring, (late April or early May). There is a recital fee of $25 due in November and April.
Instrument: Student must have a good quality instrument for lessons. No "toy" ukuleles or guitars, please. We would be happy to help you find an instrument to purchase!
