Pre-K, Elementary and Middle School Students
Music lessons are a great method to promote creativity, coordination, discipline and abstract thinking. Making music engages more areas in the brain than any other activity known to neuroscience today.
For Pre-K trainees, we ask you to bring your child for a 30-minute Assessment Session with a qualified Early Childhood Instructor. The Assessment Session includes a 15- to 20-minute lesson with the kid and a 10- to 15-minute conference with the moms and dad or care taker. After the Assessment Session is complete, the instructor might recommend to either start with lessons right now or to wait a couple of months for additional cognitive development.
For School Age kids, taking music lessons will not only be a source for self expression and creativity however likewise for development of good self esteem and fine motor skills. Abstract thinking and issue fixing skills are part of every lesson, abilities that will be really beneficial throughout life.
Recitals, festivals, master classes and competitions become part of our training, providing incentives for daily practice. Having a piano (or electronic keyboard) or guitar is important given that daily practice is needed to preserve constant progress.
