Everyone is deeply, naturally and profoundly musical – even those who think they’re not!
Neil Moore, Founder, Simply Music
We provide lessons for students from age 5 through adult. Preschoolers are usually enrolled in Play a Story, which was created by Lyndel Kennedy.
Play a Story uses storytelling, animated books and movie clips to inspire our youngest students to improvise and play their own music spontaneously. Travelling through a storybook world, your children will learn to listen, feel and literally ‘play the story’ across the whole piano.
The vocabulary of your child’s musical language comes in the form of simple piano motifs – short musical phrases or ideas. The motif incorporates melody, harmony and rhythm. How your child plays the motif describes what’s happening in the story.
As well as creating music, they’ll be learning key theoretical concepts, forming a solid playing foundation through a curriculum which spans twelve to eighteen months. At the completion of their time with Play a Story, the students transition to Simply Music for their journey forward.
Students from age 6 and up are usually ready for Simply Music.
Simply Music was created by Neil Moore, and this amazing program enables piano students to play more songs, of higher quality, in much less time, far more easily than is possible with other methods.
Within their first year of lessons, Simply Music students will typically:
- Play 30 to 50 pop, blues, jazz and classical songs from memory anytime, anywhere
- Arrange their own versions of existing songs
- Compose their own songs
- Accompany singers or other musicians
- Delight in playing the piano for themselves and for others
After their first year, the sky is the limit.
Drums, Guitar, Ukulele, Violin, and Voice
Drums, guitar, ukulele, violin and voice lessons are available to students starting around age 7. These lessons use the curricula developed by Rock School, a world-renowned provider of performance oriented, playing-based music lessons. Our Rock School students learn to play all styles and they acquire a large repertoire fast.
Rock School students can form bands which play in Open Mic Nights and Jam Nights in our beautiful Piano Lounge. We are the only studio in the area which is equipped with a large performance space and we love to see our students share their growing skills with family and friends!
Our highly skilled and patient teachers can help you and yours make music for a lifetime. We are ready to help, and we can accommodate nearly any schedule.
