Students will get the chance to learn fundamentals and theory while learning ​how to play their favorite songs. Like guitar, piano lessons are adapted from student to student to fit their learning style and interests.

 

Voice
 

From beginning voice lessons to professional vocal coaching​, students will learn breathing techniques, pitch production, projection​, stage presence and microphone techniques, all while forming a great repertoire of songs.

Drums

Drum students will practice basic skills, learn popular drum beats, read rhythms accurately and play to their favorite songs. For drum students looking to play to live music, Rock Ensemble is recommended. 

Ukulele

Not only is Ukulele a wonderful life-long instrument, it is also a great way to get into playing an instrument for the first time. Especially for youngsters interested in eventually playing guitar. All ages can learn to play and sing with Ukulele.
