Lessons

For the past several years, the studio schedule has been 100% full with a Waiting List. New Students are normally accepted at the beginning of each term – Spring (Jan.), Summer (June), and Fall (Sept.).

Piano lessons are available for beginner through early advanced, beginning age 6 and older. Lessons address the fundamental aspects of playing piano through the use of proper technique and music theory. Students will learn a variety of music styles including classical, popular, jazz, and blues. Lessons occur once a week, every week.

(Yes! I teach adult piano lessons too! It is never too late to start learning, and I’m happy to help former piano students get back to the keys.)

  • Required Materials: Must have access to a fully functional and well-tuned piano or full-sized weighted keyboard or digital piano for daily practice. Students should bring their music method books and repertoire to each lesson. Additional materials (piano book bag, metronomes, music, flash cards) may also be recommended.
  • Practice Expectations: A student’s progress is determined by dedicated practice, not by simply attending lessons. Ideally, students should practice at least 4-5 days a week. Specific amounts of practice time are not assigned to each student. Instead, students should practice long enough to complete their weekly assignments.

Voice Lessons

sarasmusic_0219aThe studio accepts voice students ages 12 and older. It is best if students are able to read music or have experience playing another instrument, preferably piano. Students who cannot read music will require additional music theory materials. Voice lessons focus on a variety of music styles to promote the development of proper breathing, resonance, and tone production, in addition to performance style and interpretation. Lessons occur once a week, every week

  • Required Materials: Students must have access to a piano or small keyboard for practice purposes. Voice students should bring a 3-ring binder, current music repertoire, and a bottle of water to each lesson. Recording devices, such as iDevices, smart phones, small audio recorders, or USB flash drives are strongly recommended.
  • Practice Expectations: Voice students are likewise expected to practice enough to reach their lesson goals each week. Practice should focus on both vocalises and repertoire; voice students must memorize their repertoire.
