We offer guitar lessons for all levels, beginners, intermediate, and even advanced players. We make learning the guitar fun and easy for you! Six of our teachers teach guitar as well as other instruments. Guitar is one of the most popular instruments to learn to play. We have methods of teaching the guitar that will take years off of the time it would normally take to learn on your own. Since this is Andy’s main instrument, we enjoy teaching our students how to play their favorite songs. In doing so, we also make sure that the student learns all the fundamentals of music through our guitar lessons. Want to be a rock star? Want to play by the campfire? Or do you just want to have fun learning a really cool instrument? If you said yes to any of these questions, then come take lessons, we will show you how!
Piano lessons. What a great idea! You want to learn how to play the piano and I must say you have made a great choice. Learning, practicing, and playing the piano will all add wonderful new dimensions to your life.
The piano is the universal instrument of all music. In other words, every single note that can be played in an orchestra can be found on the piano. The piano is also a very visual instrument. A student can “see” the music on the keyboard of the piano. Every College of Music student is required to take at least two years of piano. This is how important piano is in the development of every musician. Piano has a long history in music reaching back over 500 years to today’s modern keyboard sounds heard on many hit songs.
You will learn piano technique, piano chords and scales, music reading, learning and memorizing piano pieces, ideas for playing by ear and for improvising...these are all part of learning the piano at our school of music.
our vocal chords are a muscle, just like your biceps, and need to be exercised like any other muscle in order for you to sing well. Our vocal teachers are very experienced in teaching all types of voice students.
It’s important to understand that there are two types of voice teachers: one who primarily teaches vocal technique (how to sing) and one who is primarily a vocal coach (teaches what to sing). Of the two types, the one who teaches vocal technique is the most important because without the ability to sing easily and with flexibility in all parts of your range you are limited in what you can perform well.
Teachers of good vocal technique are very rare and hard to find. Many ‘voice teachers’ are really coaches who will help you sing through songs, addressing certain problem spots, without developing and honing your basic ability to sing. They work on the premise that the more you sing the better you will become. We have three voice teachers that can work with any style of singing and help you achieve your goals!
