Our Studio gives students access to a complete, comprehensive music education. Beginning with private music lessons, and builds upon those lessons with music theory, chamber ensembles, composition, student recitals, and juries.
Private music lessons take place once or twice a week at a regularly scheduled time and may be 30, 45, or 60 minutes long. Students must have an instrument available for daily practice. All levels, beginner, intermediate and advanced musicians receive a solid foundation in ear training, reading music, improvising and composition.
Both children and adults alike reap many benefits from learning an instrument. Music education overall engages both hemispheres of our brain. Which is highly beneficial at any age and FUN!
