Adult students and children will begin their path in music with an applied classical foundation on their instrument of choice, supplemented with music theory. As the student excels, they may choose to take part in studio recitals and/or competition opportunities that are available locally. They may also choose to focus on a single genre (sacred, jazz, classical, popular, or folk.) Whether you are learning for fun, relaxation, or are focusing on a professional career in music, you will be given the tools to find your confidence and enjoy your music skills.
