Academy of Fine Music



PIANO Our university trained instructors teach students all facets needed to be skilled pianists, including music theory, technique, scales, music genres, composers, classical reportoire and popular music.  Students are taught to visualize the story of the song to transpose the song into music.  By doing this, they are devleloping musical expression and freedom.  Listening to high quality music, ear training, sight reading, learning about music, musicians and composers are all part of the experiencee.  Students learn about the influences composers still have on popular music today and how to have a musician's ear to listen and identify this.  We pride ourselves in not only teaching children to be pianists; but, to have a life long life of music.  Private lessons are 30 minutes each week.  Monthly tuition is $75 (plus tax) for each month.

Each lesson is designed around the student's individual needs, goals and musical desires.  Guitar lessons include acoustic, electric, bass and ukulele.  All ages are welcome!   Private lessons with the teacher are 30 minutes each week.  Tuition is $75(plus tax) for each month.

MUSIC WRITING Students are taught to write music by learning chords, note progressions, rhythms, dynamics, music notations and music writing technic.  This is taught as a single project or a group project depending on what students like.  Songs are written with lyrics students have written or ideas they may have they'd like to write a song about.  They are taught how to write piano solo, vocal song or even for orchestra with multiple parts.  This class is an hour weekly class because of the time needed.

MUSIC TUTORING is a class for students taking college music classes either online or in classroom setting.  We highly encourage high school students to take a college music class with help from one of our Music Tutors.  This would be an Arts and Humanities credit most degrees need.  We also help with COLLEGE PREPARATION by preparing students that need to audition to be accepted into the college Music Program for their major by finding the requirements for that college, preparing them and mock testing.  Tutoring Class also helps with Music Scholarship applications and requirements.  In most schools you do not have to be a Music Major for a Music Scholarship but do need to participate in some part of their music program.
