The goal of music lessons is to teach music in a way that is fun, yet structured, so as to encourage creativity through the discipline of focused daily practice. Emphasis is placed on the need for good technique, careful listening and telling the story of each piece of music through the phrases and dynamics.
Fun, customized, and totally awesome music lessons happen here!
At Silver Creek Music Academy, students enrolled in piano lessons are taught directly on upright pianos, so they become accustomed to the touch and tone. We place emphasis on proper arm and hand positioning, and fingering, building a solid foundation from your very first lesson. Beginners will learn note recognition, counting/rhythmic notation, and sight-reading to build up their musicality. Intermediate to Advanced students will fine-tune these skills, in addition to ear-training, theory, advancing repertoire etc. Recitals, music competitions and festivals, and RCM Examinations are optional, but are encouraged to build confidence and give one a sense of responsibility and accomplishment – they are also great lessons in perseverance, presence, and showmanship. Repertoire ranges from classical to pop to jazz.
