Individually planned private lessons will take into account each students' age, ability and time available for practice. Students may enrol from the age of 3.5 years. All students are encouraged to learn from a variety of music so that their interest is kept alive and so that practice time does not mean playing the same piece over and over. Private students will also be expected to enrol for Music Lab if it is considered appropriate.
Partner lessons are exactly the same as private lessons but 2 students will learn together. The advantage of partner lessons is that each student gets to make a new friend and they will have the opportunity of working together on duets, compositions and games.
A student's program will incorporate the reading of music, aural training, the development of technique and theory. Improvisation, composition and sight reading are also introduced at appropriate stages.
Students who are preparing for examinations are encouraged to study extra pieces of music throughout the year and not to just "sit" on the minimum number of pieces required for their examination.
My Studio offers a modern approach to music learning with off the bench activities that include the use of computer software, iPad apps, games and writing activities.
Cooling and heating systems are in place throughout the studio to keep students comfortable during lessons so that their attention can be totally on their learning.
My Studio is located in Green Point on the Central Coast and is just around the corner from Erina and Gosford.
