Am I too old to learn a new skill? This question is one that teenagers and adults ask themselves often, before learning the piano. The answer, of course, is that you are never to old to learn something new. Our piano department gets results with every learner, because we create lessons where each student develops musicianship skills like ear training, music theory, proper piano technique, reading and writing music, and even composing. Beginners, intermediate, and advanced students learn how to increase their skills through proper at home practice and clear objectives to achieve their goals.
The Youth Jazz Messengers will learn to apply their instrumental and vocal skills in an ensemble setting, learning the jazz idiom through improvisation, aural skills, and creative interpretation of America’s own art form. Students will learn to play different jazz styles from swing to shuffle to funk to latin to ballad, exploring and understanding how to create and recreate. Our Jazz Messengers will have fun making music together, no matter what instrument you play!
Students at intermediate or advanced levels can sign up for one-on-one lessons with an instructor. In these lessons, students will work on their specific needs, with lessons tailored to fit their abilities and goals.
