Comprehensive, contemporary and interactive, group music education for students of all ages.
Courses are specifically designed for each age group from 2 years and from age 4 to 12, teen and adults, piano tuition is integrated into our course curriculum. We teach all musical styles and aim to develop the musician through diversity in our musicianship programs. Our music classes are fun and effective. Students are grouped in small classes according to age and taught by talented and friendly teachers. After completion of the group courses, students may choose to continue their music education in individual lessons through our schools, studying for leisure or alternately working to reach the highest level of achievement through to advanced levels.
We teach music as a language: What you hear you sing; what you sing you play; what you play you read; what you read you write
Music Theory and Musicality
At Music Schools International, students enter the exhilarating world of music through theoretical and practical classes. During simple and understandable lessons, students learn to read music with ease. They also discover how to make music, which is pleasing to the ears and uplifting to the spirit. With the piano as the main instrument and medium of instruction, knowledgeable teachers deepen students’ musical competence and appreciation.
If you are new to music lessons, Music Schools International is your door to an invigorating musical experience. Encouraging instructors are trained to teach at your level and guide you patiently each step of the way. If you are an advanced student who wants to qualify for a university’s music program or simply enrich your musical appreciation, Music Schools International has classes that are designed especially for you.
Our group based curriculum is engaging, progressive and age-specific. Students are taught aural (ear) training, rhythms, reading, writing, music history and at age 4 piano technique is added. By teaching in groups we are able to expose a greater breadth of experience to the learning process in an unpressured and fun-filled environment.
For the beginner, intermediate and advance student; our classes will teach pitch identification, music theory, reading, writing, ear training, piano technique and exploration of music genres. Each class focuses on developing the whole musician not just learning to play a song.
If you’re age 15 or 58, a music class is available to help you succeed in achieving your dreams. With a supportive environment that recognizes your needs and potential, you can tap into a fulfilling love of music, which will carry throughout your life. CONTACT US
