Whether interested in classical (think Mozart and Beethoven!), pop (Alicia Keys, John Legend), rock (Elton John, Billy Joel), or jazz (Count Basie) styles, students will have the opportunity to learn from accomplished teachers, as well as take exams through the Royal Conservatory of Music and Conservatory Canada.
Beginner classes will focus on the basics, including note reading, rhythm, ear training, and introductory theory. Students will initially learn to play simple songs, with the addition of chord work in the latter part of the course. Intermediate and Advanced classes will integrate scales, intervals, and chord progressions through more complicated pieces, and work on developing students’ sight reading, use of lead lines, and improvisation skills. Teachers will advise students on method books to purchase.
