Music Lessons

Lessons are held weekly or bi-weekly for either a half hour or hour long session 

and are tailored to each student.  Every student receives a binder which includes 

assignment sheets, practice records and goal-setting charts. 

 

Brass Lessons

Materials will cover warm-up exercises; scales; etude books such as Arban's Complete Method, Clarke's Technical Studies, and Schlossberg's Daily Drills; and solos for solo festivals and recitals. 


Woodwind Lessons

Materials will cover warm-up exercises; scales; etude books specific 

to the instrument; and solos for solo festivals and recitals. 


Piano Lessons

The curriculum for piano lessons combines practicing out of the Bastien series; which includes a technic, piano and performance book. Students work on a solo each semester. 

Music theory is also taught through scale, arpeggio and chord practice. 


Voice Lessons

Everyone has the natural ability to sing; every person and every voice type represents a unique instrument. A variety of methods are used and tailored to each individual student. 


Percussion Lessons

Warm-up exercises, rudiments, scales, and basic beats and fills are covered. 
Beginning books include the Alfred's Beginning Snare Drum and Drumset books.
