A Goal-Oriented Approach

Practicing for the sake of practicing bears limited results. Moreover, such an approach is often off-putting. In order to ensure a steady progress, the key is to keep students engaged and motivated. However, how do we get them interested enough to keep them practicing between lessons? A good start is setting clear expectations. Students should always know what they need to achieve on a daily basis. While there certainly is a correlation between time spent behind an instrument and results, a goal-oriented approach is just as important. What’s even more important, it saves time and makes practice sessions more intensive and effective.

A Blend of Established and Contemporary Practices

Music is, for all intents and purposes, a language. Notes, expressive markings, the musical staff onto which all of them are written, harmonic structure, formal constructs, performance practices, semantics are just a few aspects of this immense world that educators have devoted their lives to studying and teaching. Each one oof our curricula has been based on the most effective methods that teachers have been using for centuries. At the same time, we realize that the needs of today’s students have changed considerably since the advent of music instruction. This lead us to develop a unique curriculum, focused around students’ goals and needs.

Exceptional Teachers

Our faculty has been carefully selected to include only the most experienced, kind, and nurturing teachers from the most selective graduate programs in the region. All of our teachers have years of experience with students of all ages and levels and advanced degrees in music education, theory, or performance. This way, you can be certain that you are in good hands.
