Lessons are taught one-on-one in a relaxed environment that is perfect for learning. Each student's needs are unique! Our Instructors can adapt and interchange lesson materials to fit an individual's learning style.
Music helps us to become people who are compassionate, empathetic, refreshed and less anxious. Students of music are often healthier, happier and more optimistic individuals. Music lessons teach the importance of self-discipline, patience, and the value of hard work. In a Colombia University study, students in the arts are found to be more cooperative with teachers and peers, more self-confident, and better able to express their ideas.*
In a 2000 survey, 73 percent of respondents agree that teens who play an instrument are less likely to have discipline problems† and are less likely to engage in substance abuse further down the road. Music students attend college at a rate that is twice the national average.
Several of our students have received music scholarships. Our latest, Edward Gallagher (who took piano and drum lessons), received $16,000 for one full year of tuition at an engineering school.
We have many adults who have experienced the health benefits - both mental and physical - of taking lessons. Over time, music can lower blood pressure and heart rate. It is even used in the treatment of Alzheimer patients.
Our students enjoy the time spent at the studio and love achieving their goals. There's nothing like the pride felt when you pass a difficult song or move onto the next level of books!
