Types of “In-Home” Lessons We Offer
Music Lessons on All Instruments for Children
A child is most prone to developing “bad habits” in music between the early ages of 4 through 12, that is why we take great care in how we introduce to our students to music. At the Royal Academy each child will explore music in its entirety, developing all the skills necessary in being a well rounded and creative musician. The Royal Academy ensures that all of its students are taught sight-reading skills, counting and rhythmic skills, technical skills, basic music theory and most of all, to be creativity.
We do not teach our students to “play by ear” nor do we subscribe to ridiculous notions that a child can learn to play an instrument online or in a month from a “learn it yourself book or CD “. Music is accumulative and the only way to progress and become a good little musician is to instill healthy and productive practice habits. It is equally important the teacher presents the material in an enjoyable and encouraging way, carefully listening to your child and understanding how they register the material along with being attentive to your child’s problems in a particular area is key to their music development.
Music Lessons On All Instruments for the Adult Student
he Royal Academy also offers private music studies for the adult student. Whether you are a beginner, an advanced player, or simply rekindling an old passion for music, we offer a variety of programs and lesson schedules custom suited for the adult student who has to often juggle a very demanding work and home schedule. Lessons are offered at all three convenient locations and hours range from morning
and lunchtime lessons until 9:00 PM in the evening.
The Adult student can expect to learn all genres of music ranging from classical, jazz, swing, pop, ragtime, blues and more. At the Royal Academy the adult student can expect to learn music all the skills necessary in being a well rounded and creative musician. The Royal Academy ensures that all of its students develop strong sight-reading skills, counting and rhythmic skills, technical skills, theory and again, to explore their creativity.
There is no question as to the many therapeutic and stress relieving benefits of music. Not only as a listener and player does the sound of beautiful music immediately relax and soothe a very active and tense mind, but music has the ability to stir the emotions and to act as a wonderful vehicle for creative expression.
The Royal Academy will also deliver instruments to your lesson at home or to your school. We rent every instrument of the symphony orchestra for a fraction of what most other instrument rental companies will charge you and all of our instruments are brand new, not used.
