Flute

Our flute instructor has a great passion and excitement for her work, and enjoys teaching students of all ages.  During flute lessons students will learn the aspects of breath support, posture and tone production.  The flute curriculum is built around these core ingredients and is modified based on the age, needs, level and interests of the student.  Flute instruction is provided using the Suzuki Method.  Additionally, students will have many opportunities to perform in formal recitals, more relaxed environments, and competitions. 

Cello

Our cello instructor provides one-on-one instruction that focuses on the fundamentals of technique, note reading, rhythm, musical expression, music theory and development of practice routine at home, using the Suzuki Method for beginners and a variety of string method books and traditional methods for more advanced students. 

Electric Bass Guitar

Students who are 7 years old and above can learn to play the bass guitar; no experience is
required to begin. Students will be taught using traditional methods that combine technical
exercises, ear training, and basic music theory. Performance practices from a variety of musical
genres will be studied, including: classical, jazz, latin (bossa nova, samba, etc), rock, funk, and
R&B. Students will learn how to play the instrument, read music, and perform by themselves

Violin / Viola

Our violin and viola teachers teach using a combination of traditional and Suzuki Methods.  Beginner students can expect to work on fundamental techniques, simple songs and melodies, sight reading and theory.  Students can begin as early as 3.5 years old.   

We balance musicianship and enjoyment by making sure that at each lesson you are challenged with a new technique or theoretical concept, while always including something fun. 
 

Piano Lessons

Piano lessons include sight reading, ear training, harmony & theory, expanding repertoire, performance skills, enhancing creativity and much more.   Our piano teachers re-affirm that learning music is a solid foundation essential for a fulfilling music education.  Teachers teach students using the Suzuki and Traditional methods. 

Guitar Lessons

Playing guitar involves much more than one's fingers and understanding music theory; it involves  the way one hold the guitar, the production of sound, and subtleties in the changing of notes. We pay close attention to the following: posture, use of the whole body, including right and left hands, tone quality, musical interpretation, reading notes, and rhythm.

We are ready to help kids and teens to develop balanced technique and reach their  full musical potential. All levels, ranging from absolute beginners to advanced, are invited to explore a variety of genres.
