Intermediate to advanced string players are entering an exciting part of the learning process. Our faculty will focus on increasing the music's level of difficulty, but more importantly, they will focus on teaching musicality. Going beyond the notes on the page and learning about phrasing and the fine little nuances makes a "complete" musician.

Intermediate/Advanced musicians will focus on the following:

  • 3 and 4 octave scales and arpeggios

  • Thumb position (cello)

  • Double Stops

  • Specialty bowing techniques

  • Audition preparations

The piano is a wonderful instrument for all ages.  For students just beginning their musical studies, piano lessons provide a solid foundation for learning any instrument.  Because of the visual nature of the keyboard, it is easy to understand music theory.  Students become fluent in reading both the bass and treble clef.  Playing the piano improves hand-eye coordination and mental acuity. The piano repertoire is beautiful, diverse, and needs no accompaniment.
