Private instruction is the foundation and primary focus for musical development.
Your teacher will guide you through music fundamentals, sight reading, and the music you choose to explore, whether that is popular music, classical, or jazz.
Community performance is the vital second part of the curriculum. Every student performs in recitals. Even if that means virtual!
Successful students who are ready are grouped together to form duos, trios, and eventually full bands.
The stage motivates students artistically and socially; it incentivizes consistent practice. The stage has been redefined more loosely during these extraordinary times; the stage can be as simple as capturing a musical moment on your phone.
