Music Theory: Students will be given assignments in reading tablature, learning music by ear, playing chord charts, and reading music to develop a well-rounded education.
Literature & Performance: Guitar and ukulele students will have the opportunity to explore various styles, as well as work on a piece for one of our end-of-year performances!
Weekly lessons are perfect for serious students who are able to commit to a half-hour or hour-long private lesson each week for the session. Enrolling in a weekly lesson means that you have a “reserved” lesson spot each week. Students may enroll at any time, but once enrolled, they are committed for the remainder of our session, which runs from September to May.
How to Enroll
Visit our website and create an account to enroll in private lessons. Be sure to specify the type of private lesson you would like, if the instructor teaches more than one discipline. Enrolled students are committed to the entire session, and an annual $30 registration fee is required at the time of registration. Parents are to notify the office if their child has any injuries or illness of which the parent feels we should be aware. Students who do not wish to participate in a recital or performance should notify the office upon registration to avoid additional fees.
Students may enroll at any time, and will pay a prorated rate. High school students who would like to perform a solo in the recital or gala must be enrolled for the entire session. The enrollment deadline for the Music Student Recital participation is January 20, 2019. Students may enroll after this date, but they will be unable to participate in the recitals.
Conflicts of Interest
Students who are enrolled in private lessons will not be allowed to take the same type of lesson from a teacher at a different studio. Teaching methods and philosophies may vary greatly from studio to studio, and may hinder, rather than help, a students’ progress.
