Musical Development

  • Solfege/Theory: 30 minutes (level 1) or 45 minute class (other levels) weekly. All basics of music theory are approached, helping students understand the “rules” of music. Theory is to music what grammar is to language. Different classes offered to fit each student’s level. Students learn the language of music called “Solfege”, and through fun exercises and singing, train their ears to recognize pitches. Great for sight reading, improvising and learning music repertoire in a shorter amount of time. FREE FOR ENROLLED PRIVATE SUDENTS.
       $15 PER CLASS FOR OUTSIDE STUDENTS.

  • Performance class: 60, 90 or 120 minute’s session bi-monthly. Only open to students enrolled in private classes. Students perform for each other and their teachers, and receive and give feedback to one another. All aspects of the performance are approached: stage freight, stage presence, etiquette, interpretation and musicality. Thanks to this class, students get used to playing in public and become familiar with the process which results in a better enjoyment of public performance. FREE FOR ENROLLED PRIVATE STUDENTS.

  • Master-Class: 1 class per Semester, access upon teacher’s recommendation. Up to 6 “active” students and unlimited number of students can participate as auditors. Once per semester, a musical personality comes to the school and gives a master-class. The master-classes are open to the public, and feature either a pedagogue from a major music school, a local music personality, or even a performing soloist. The performing students receive feedback and advice on their performance from the guest teacher, bringing a vital perspective on their own playing. $50 FOR ACTIVE PARTICIPANTS.
