WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT?
- Our goal is to help every student become a competent and comprehensive musician through tailored interactive study, which includes:
- Confidently play multiple genres of music
- Read music (score/notation)
- Play music by ear
- Improvise and create original compositions
- Understand and apply music theory
- Collaborate and play with other musicians
- Our program incorporates weekly private lessons and monthly group workshops that includes performance classes.
- Student set their own goals throughout the year.
- Parents receive regular feedbacks through teacher inputs, progress reports and parent-teacher conference.
- We love to teach beginners. We have one-of-a-kind approach and our extensive resources to support our approach. We feel privileged to introduce the world of music to beginner students.
- Our teachers work collaboratively. We share in our teaching methods and technique and we work as a team to address student needs.
- Our incentive programs run throughout the year and that motivate our students to take ownership of their learning.
- We believe that while music is for everyone to enjoy and partake, learning to play the piano is not. Piano takes a special dedication and effort and that is why if a student does not show a forward motion in learning to play the piano for an extended time, we will discuss with the student (and parent) whether to continue our working relationship. This keeps our learning and teaching environment vibrant, healthy and dynamic.
- We run our piano program like a small private school and our students develop a sense of belonging and solidarity. They support each other and spur each other on to be and do better.
- Our recitals will be the most entertaining student recitals you will attend. We promise.
