Please feel free to check with your teacher regarding progress. You should hear small improvements steadily and and your child’s teacher will be happy to discuss expectations with you. Remember, our philosophy is based on musicality. From the start, songs should have a pleasing “conversational” tone and a sense of timing.
Musical Development is a cumulative process and some skills take longer than others to progress during the children’s music program. With dedicated practice and studey, these important skills will benefit not only the student’s academic growth, but their personal growth as well.
If you have questions or need feedback regarding your student’s progress, please call or email for an appointment with your teacher. They are more than willing to help you and your child. Please take a moment to view this fascinating presentation on the effects of practice on the human brain “How to Practice Effectively”
Each year we sponsor a practice program. Students can record a piece or technique they are working on to receive a raffle ticket toward some very exciting prizes. We have awarded iPads, Switch consoles and various Gift Cards. Each recording receives feedback from the teacher with suggestions for improvement and for future pieces and techniques to work on. There is no limit to the amount of tickets a students can receive.
