Lessons


SMS students have landed roles in popular TV shows (such as Sesame Street) as well as school and community theater productions (such the Henegar Center and Hoboken’s Children Theater). For voice lessons, children are ideally able to read both words and rudimentary sheet music. Dual enrollment in piano is recommended for children interesting in singing.

For piano, children can start around six years of age, when they have the attention span to focus on a seated task for at least 20 minutes. Parents are strongly encouraged to attend lessons in the beginning, as children will need supervision while practicing at home.

Adults who have always wished to be more musical will have fun learning to read music and play/sing their favorite tunes. Lessons are also a wonderful way for children to build on the innate musical talents that all children naturally possess.
