“Our goal is to nurture love to Music, to motivate the Student and to assure personal fulfillment at each stage of the learning process.” We adjust the teaching method to accommodate each student’s personal needs rather than following blindly the method. Whether the students wants to just enjoy playing music or plans to make it career, we have program to assist them. We are aiming to present all music fundamentals through gradual and progressive exercises and produce well-rounded, engaged and skillful musicians.
We also believe that performing on stage is the ultimate goal of learning music. That is why we encourage all students to participate in our Winter and Spring Recitals in order to gain performing experience, showcase their talents and build self-confidence – so important in many other areas their lives as well.
