Benefits of Music Lessons

Strengthen Attention Span: leading to academic success (proven through science) through the growth of cranial synapses. The rate of development is due to the combination of visual, auditory, kinesthetic, emotional, and social stimuli. This expansion happens quickly in children, slowing as we age, and yet can be maintained through our lifespan if we continue with music and maintain good nutrition.

Develop Self-Motivation: leading to career success & personal fulfillment. The layering of immediate response with delayed gratification plus the questioning of how to improve (higher level processing) develops students’ critical thinking and intrinsic motivation for better habits which can be applied to any topic or task.

Form Community: leading to musical friendships that are face-to-face and unplugged. The better that we play as individuals, the better groups we get to be a part of and the better our group music making can be.

Establish Musical Aptitude: leading to life-long enjoyment of music on any instrument and for any style. Early learning of any musical instrument sets up neurological connections but the piano is shown to be the most applicable to overall musicality due to the chordal and contramelodic possibilities. However, the guitar and ukulele also allow for chordal and melodic study, and leave the voice available for linguistic expression (lyrics).

Keeping Your Family Safe

INDOOR LESSONS – Masks and Sanitation

Your family’s health and safety are of paramount importance, so we have some rules in place so that everyone may take lessons safely.

In-person lessons: Only students of the same family will be allowed to take lessons together. Lessons will be scheduled a half-hour apart so that the space can air out and chairs/instruments wiped down. All teachers have been vaccinated for Covid-19 and will mask during lessons.

PLEASE WEAR a properly-fitting mask for instrumental lessons (3-D face masks are recommended for voice lessons). Students should bring supplies including pencils, water bottle, sheet music and an assignment book (audio recorder for voice). Books are available for purchase here, as needed.

Students who cannot wear a mask may elect for online lessons or lessons outdoors. We require students to agree to online lessons as a backup in the event of exposure or inclement weather. You may choose Skype, Zoom, or Facetime–although Skype is preferred due it’s sound quality, security, and recording capabilities.

I’m grateful to you all for your support on this journey. May music continue to heal and brighten your souls as it does ours.
