Genre and Styles
We are not a genre specific school. Our students study forms ranging from Rock, Pop, Jazz, Classical to Folkloric and others. If a student is connected to a certain music genre or form, we believe that this category should be celebrated and highlighted at the onset of music study. Simultaneously, we trust that building a strong foundation of facility, technique and understanding of music theory will allow our students to pursue a number of paths. Particularly for younger students, it is our goal to build strong fundamentals. With strong fundamentals, students are able to deepen their exploration of their unique musical tastes. Altogether, our efforts are steered by our students' music interests while stressing the development of foundational skills and technique that are paramount to thriving as a musician.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire about lessons. Please email referencing who the lessons are for, age, experience level, instrument preference, and preferred days and times. Vince will clarify availability and work to match you with an instructor if possible. After you're matched with an instructor and timeslot, you'll be invited in for a 30min trial lesson. If you're satisfied, we will move forward with the registration process.
