How to sign up


Parents: Please introduce the piano to your kids in some way first? Do you or a relative have a piano so they can play it? If you have a piano, please try placing it in an area where it is pleasant and accessible. Does it get lots of attention?

After experimenting on it regularly, perhaps ask your kids if they want to learn how to play it? If their response is positive, then you are ready to get started!

It is ideal to develop good muscle techniques early on, as interest is shown and musicality can develope comfortably.

Type of Pianos

Acoustic Pianos – An upright Piano is ideal. Beginners to intermediate levels are best using a decent piano, all keys working, to develop solid piano skills. A baby Grand Piano is great for advanced levels.

Keyboards – There are two types:

  • A home keyboard has speakers on it. 66 to 88 keys is best, weighted actions, a foot pedal attachment plug on the back, some have foot pedals attached (Amp IN/OUT/USB/MIDI ports behind). An adjustable keyboard stand, music stand on top and bench are a must.
  • Synthesizers (USB port to a computer/software) make most of ‘Modern’ music on the radio and at concert venues. A synthesizer is a professional instrument for sound manipulation and beat generation. It does not have a built-in set of speakers, but instead is plugged into an amplifier.

A keyboard is less ideal for piano technical skills development, more for sounds and starting out.

Some keyboard students may become less enthusiastic after learning just the basics. This is because unless they are seriously using the console synthesis portions of the keyboard, the keyboard on its own is small and limited. Traditional classical piano study is not recommended with a simple keyboard.

Piano Methods:

Agility, dexterity and virtuosity are taught during piano lessons as well as reading and melody development. Learning to improvise and understanding popular and Jazz harmonies are important to understand as well. Pianists will learn a wide range of genres.

Students will also learn music theory. This is the science behind the sound. This is about chords, harmony, counterpoint, chordal structures in early music through popular.

Keyboard/Synthesizer Students:

Students start with the basics of reading traditional music and understanding chordal harmony and basic melody development. Theory and composition is offered at all levels and keyboard types during instruction. Studying trend music, dance music with heavy beats, power music, rock, fusion, R & B, techno, country and more can all enhance the lessons. Song writing and original compositions are the final result of the process, performing in gigs also is part of the process.


Are you or your kids singing regularly and want to learn how to become a better singer? If so, you are ready to sign up!

To study voice means you will need to learn pitch control, begin ear training, reading music and studying basic musical theory and chordal harmony. This is all possible using a small or large keyboard or acoustic piano. Please consider getting one at some point during the early stages of your singing lessons.


Learning the basics is all about simple. Folk tunes, nursery rhymes and such are the first part of singing. When comfortable with the basics, you may venture to more advanced techniques, musical theater, opera and pop opera and/or Jazz styles. Any genre you enjoy singing is possible to get started, slowly developing a good sense of individual style.

Learning decent Opera technique is helpful as it requires vocal stamina and great technique! Chordal harmony and accompaniment all blend into very beautiful music!

General Overview of Learning Music:

The desire to play piano, or sing, and please audiences with performances is what it's about! With consistent practice and paying attention to detail, all things are possible!

Students may perform at recitals or competitive events when ready.

Fast Track Learning!

Lessons on ‘Fast Track’ are for students who want excel faster or parents who want to see their kids improve at a fast pace. Fast Track can show great results!


Practice requires concentration. Similar to a library there should be as few distractions as possible on a regular basis. It's a mood thing. A good practice environment can improve everything! Please arrange time for practice each day of the week. Keep distractions on the minimum, cats, dogs, chickens, ducks, piglets, elephants or whatever! A separate room is ideal. Concentrated singing practice is ideal in a quiet, clean, dust free comfortable environment.


When favorite shows are on, please record them and watch later! Practice now!

Music Athleticism

Playing the piano or learning to sing is much different than listening. It is all about being athletic in learning, physical stamina, dexterity of tone and agility of muscle movement. It is like learning swimming, dance, soccer, tennis, golf or other sports! Go for it!!

Scheduling Practice

Students who enroll should be ready to practice regularly! Parents please encourage practice right away along with other school activities. Please be sure there are not too many activities scheduled on a regular basis so practice energy is tops!


Weekly Lessons

Learning piano and vocal singing requires weekly lessons. Composers like Ludwig Van Beethoven also had weekly lessons! Have a look at his teachers here.
