Frequently Asked General Music Lessons Questions
I Don’t Have Any Musical Background or Ability. Can I Still Help My Child Practice?
Absolutely! Even if you don’t have a musical background you can ask the teacher for advice on how to help your child practice. A lot of your child’s success in the beginning years does depend on you. By simply monitoring that they are doing exercises a certain number of times per day the student will progress. Parents will occasionally sit and are welcome to stay 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.
Frequently Asked Piano Lessons Questions
Are There Piano Recitals?
Absolutely, and much more. Classic Studios prides itself on giving more performance opportunities than any other school. Every December and May we provide recitals in world class recital halls with Steinway and Yamaha pianos for our students to perform on. We get to perform at venues like the Yardbird Suite, Edmonton Moravian Church, The Piano Centre, Muttart Hall at Alberta College, and the Commonground Cafe. Unlike most of our competitors we do not charge a ‘participation fee’ for our students to perform. There are also no admission fees so you can invite as many family members and friends as you want to attend the recital for free.
Types of Lessons We Offer
(for ages six and up or earlier with the approval of an instructor)
Our drum instructors teach rock, metal, jazz, funk, blues and many other styles. Drum language can be complex and our instructors will challenge any drummer with a wide variety of technical exercises designed to improve your speed and comfort. All drummers bring in their favorite drum parts to learn in their lessons and theory is encouraged. We have many drum students who play in local bands be it in rock clubs or their local churches. You do not have to purchase a drum kit to take lessons. Beginning students can learn with a drum pad and sticks. Students use our drum set at their lessons and do not have to bring anything except their drum sticks and a notebook.
