Instrument Areas

Piano

 

Students who study piano should have access to an accoustic piano or, if using an electric piano, it should have weighted keys. All piano students receive instruction in music theory.

Woodwind, Brass, and Percussion Instruments

 

Wind and percussion instruments come in one size which is why it is generally recommended that students delay study until they are big enough to physically handle the instrument (usually 5th grade). We offer instruction on:

flute, oboe, bassoon, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, horn, trombone, baritone, tuba, mallet and battery percussion. Please contact our office for recommendations of dealers in our area from which you can rent an instrument.

For information about Private Lesson pricing, please go to the Registration page.

Stringed Instruments

 

Violins, violas, cellos, and string basses come in different sizes which enable them to be played by young children and adults alike. We recommend that a student is measured for the appropriate sized instrument by a professional. Please contact our office for recommendations of instrument dealers in our area.

Vocal Study

 

Students who study voice will recieve foundational training which includes note reading (and music theory in general). Vocal styles taught include classical, pop, rock, folk, country, jazz, and gospel. Private vocal study for young children requires an assessment for readiness.

Guitar

 

Students who study guitar will lear to read music. Lessons are offered on both accoustic and electric guitar and students are expected to bring their own instrument to lessons.
