ABOUT

Re-thinking the model of traditional music education and after-school piano lessons.

A unique music program designed for success. We are re-thinking the model of traditional music education in both structure and method. 

Private piano lessons are offered during school hours (as part of the academic curriculum?), when the mind and body are most alert.  Up to 3 private lessons per week are offered, in order to reinforce concepts and ensure progress is being made. A group music discovery class is held on Fridays mornings, where the students collaborate in new exciting ways, share their own work, and expand their musical concepts in real world applications. 

OBJECTIVES

Create a strong, essential musical foundation through private classical piano lessons

We all posses the ability to become fluent in the musical language, with dedication to small, weekly practice goals. Master the "rules", so that eventually you can break them.

Awaken and express the inherent musicality we are all born with

Find the joy in self expression through music. Learn to play inspiring pieces with your current skill set. Apply your skills to electronic music and discover a new universe of tones. Create your own music through composition and improvisation. 

In addition to accomplishing your musical goals, you will forever carry the non-musical benefits of studying piano: critical and abstract thinking, self discipline, focus, and ability to set and achieve goals.

GROUP MUSIC DISCOVERY AND ENSEMBLE CURRICULUM

MUSIC APPRECIATION AND ENSEMBLE

  • An introduction to historical composers, modern artists, and world music through listening, and movement, 
  • Ensemble singing and percussion

KEYBOARD ROCK BAND

  • Break into groups of 4 students, playing 4 different keyboards.
  • Each student will cover a different instrument tone (bass, rhythm, melody, etc) to create a piano "band".
  • Why I like this over real guitar/bass/drums/strings: Using a keyboard instantly creates a perfect, in-tune tone, with access to infinite instruments. This will allow beginners to sound like professionals!

  • Guest Musicians demonstrate, perform, and discuss their instrument 

MUSIC DISCOVERY
