The curriculum is well balanced, inspiring, and chosen individually for each student’s interest and desired objective. The lessons are focused and given in a professional manner. Exploring the great Classical composers, preparing for Conservatory performance exams, creating your own music, or even learning to improvise your favourite popular music is quite rewarding and lots of fun, especially on the 2 large studio Yamaha Disklavier grand pianos.
Studio students enjoy:
- recording their performances and making their own personal CD’s
- playing along to orchestral accompaniments such as Concerto’s
- enjoying playing popular/jazz ensemble music with instrumental and vocal tracks
