- Private Lessons
Private lessons provide one-on-one training with either Micah or Brittany, both of whom are "highly-qualified" music educators, or Sylus Sartin, our student teacher who is also amazing! In private lessons, students are taught weekly and have the option of choosing 15-minute, 20-minute, 30-minute, 45-minute, 1-hour, or 1.5 hour lessons. A recommendation for length of lesson will be made at the initial interview based upon the student’s age, maturity level, musical experience, academic and performance goals, scheduling and financial concerns. Private lessons are catered to the individual student’s needs and have higher expectations for practice time than classes do. Private lessons are perfect for older students or the student who is wanting to take music more seriously and further their abilities!
If your child is a musical novice or is under the age of 9 years old, classes are an excellent way to get them started in general music or on an instrument! Children can truly benefit from the social aspect of classes, learn how to work as a team, and improve their micro-motor and macro-motor skills, all while learning general music concepts such as vocal, rhythmic, and ear training! Classes are also great for students who already take privately but want to make music with others while reinforcing the principles learned in private lessons!
