WHAT WILL I LEARN IN PIANO LESSONS?
Our piano teachers understand that every student is an individual, with personal musical needs and goals. We make it a priority to tailor how we teach and what we teach to your individual needs.
If you enroll here for piano lessons, your teacher will ask you about your favorite type of music, and set goals to help accomplish whatever musical aspirations you have for yourself or your child. Together, you will develop a plan to achieve your goals! We love beginners, so even if you don't know where to begin, we can help!
WHAT STYLES OF MUSIC CAN I LEARN?
We touch on all styles from rock, pop, jazz, country, worship and blues with an emphasis on classical. With all of the teachers at Smithville Music Studio, you are sure to find the best match for YOU.
HOW LONG UNTIL YOU WILL BE ABLE TO PLAY A SONG?
There is no set answer of how long it takes to learn to play piano. With regular practice, a basic level of playing can be accomplished in a few months. Most of our students take lessons on a long term basis because they want to be constantly improving and they find the lessons enjoyable.n most cases short songs or pieces of songs are taught almost from the beginning. However how soon it becomes music depends many factors including the amount of time spent practicing.
I DON’T HAVE ANY MUSICAL BACKGROUND OR ABILITY. CAN I STILL HELP MY CHILD PRACTICE?
Yes. Even if you don't have a musical background you can ask the teacher for advice on how to help your child practice. By simply monitoring that they are doing exercises a certain number of times per day the student will progress. Parents will occasionally sit in on their child's music lesson to get an idea of the proper way a song should sound or how the student should be positioning their hands.
HOW DO WE PAY?
A $25.00 registration (non-refundable) fee must paid before a lesson time is scheduled. Lessons are paid in advance on the first lesson of the month ($90/4wks, $112.50/5wks). We run rolling admissions so if you want start in the middle of the month, it is prorated @ $22.50 per lesson. We except cash or check only.
STUDENT TEACHER PROGRAM
We support a program to help beginning teachers refine their skills as they develop into professional teachers. Only advanced long term students who are music majors or preparing to study music at a college level are screened for this program. Not only are their music skills considered but their goals and their abilities to communicate with others, especially younger student musicians. They hone their skills under the watchful eye of a mentor instructor and have access to address any teaching concerns they may encounter. Through this program we will advance the art of teaching music while allowing student teachers opportunity to earn financial support in their chosen field.
