    • Develop core foundations in sight reading, ear training, composing and improvising.

Music Labs
Music Labs are technology enhanced learning — an approach that inspires creativity, increases motivation, enhances learning and allows students to collaborate and share their music experiences with others.  Through computer programs, mobile devices, attached MIDI keyboards/guitars, notation software and more, students will have an opportunity to reinforce concepts we learn in lessons, explore composition and sequencing, create their own music, enhance listening skills and so much more.

Shared Lessons

Shared lessons are a unique opportunity for students to learn to communicate, work together, and develop musical skills with a peer.  We find that shared experiences increase motivation, improve retention of information and increase enjoyment of developing musical skills.  Lesson time is split between the Music Lab, individual time with the teacher, duets and group music activities.

Private Lessons 

In some cases it is more suitable for a student to have a private lesson, to support a more in-depth approach to study.

Therapeutic Music Instruction
In cases of limited mobility,  attention or learning challenges — the style of teaching can be adapted to create a successful learning environment for your child.  Depending on your child’s needs, Music Therapy may be a more suitable program. (Please call for more info)
