Music lessons & COMPLIMENTARY Music Lab!
Private music lessons offer each student an ideal opportunity to receive personal and customized training from their teaching artist.
Students will participate in a well-rounded program and, most importantly, enjoy the process! Our faculty is comprised of professional, experienced, motivating teachers who have a passion for teaching music. Whether you are interested in piano, guitar, voice, violin or drums, we will work with you to find the instructor best suited to your individual style and musical goals.
Each lesson includes one on one lesson time with the instructor, plus additional time in the Music Lab* where students work at their own computer station on music theory, sight reading and ear training.
Music fundamentals, such as those studied in the Music Lab, provide students with a more comprehensive understanding of the music they are learning and playing. Studying the structure behind music theory, supports practical skills that encourage at-home practice, creates successful sight-readers, and performers. Ultimately creating a more rewarding experience.
School of Music and Dance offers piano lessons for students of all ages and abilities, from beginners to very advanced. We offer every style of piano lesson, from classical to jazz and pop. We have students who want to play just for fun and students who excel at the advanced level. We will match students with a teacher that works best with their particular age, ability and interest. We start piano lessons from age six onwards. Our piano lessons are all private one-on-one instruction, and lesson lengths are 30 minutes, 45 minutes or 1 hour. While our Charlotte, Kannapolis piano lessons are all private, parents are more than welcome to sit in on their child’s lessons.
We have many students who take voice or singing lessons at our schools. Our voice lessons are all private one-on-one instruction. Students sing all genres of music from their favorite artists to classical arias. Just a sample of what a student will learn in singing lessons includes how to breathe properly, how to increase their range, proper pitch, how to project and stage presence. Our schools offer two optional performance opportunities each year. We provide a professional accompanist who rehearses with the students and plays for them at the recitals.
Our guitar lessons include acoustic, electric and bass guitar. We have an excellent guitar teaching staff, and teach guitar lessons in everything from rock to jazz, classical to pop, Spanish to chording. Many of our teachers actively perform in bands. Our guitar teachers have college or university music degrees so they know the proper theory and technique, no matter if a student is interested in metal or in classical. Whatever type of guitar lessons you are interested in, we have the teachers to help you. Typically, a student would be eight years of age before starting guitar lessons, due to their hand size, but some younger students start with a junior sized guitar.
Our strings program offers private instruction in violin. Our private violin lessons start as young as age five. Due to the size of the instrument. We have music students of all ages, from adults to children. For younger children we highly encourage a parent to sit in on the music lesson to help the student at home with things such as posture and hand positioning. Our violin teachers have university or college degrees in their instrument and many perform regularly with local orchestras or bands.
We offer a wide variety of drum lessons or percussion lessons. Most of our students learn on a drum kit. We have both male and female students, and typically do not start drum lessons before age eight as students need to be able to reach both the pedal and the high hat. Charlotte drum lessons are taught on a drum kit in our studios, but students are able to get started practicing at home on practice pads before purchasing or renting a drum kit. Our drum lessons stress proper technique so students become good drummers quickly.
