WHAT DO YOU LEARN IN YOUR MUSIC LESSONS?
That question is often asked by prospective students. Our teachers make it a priority to get to know you on a personal level and to become familiar with your personal musical needs and goals.
We do not treat every student the same in terms of what and how we teach.
A seven year old having their first guitar lesson will have very different needs than a fifty seven year old taking up piano for the 2nd time after having had lessons as a child.
The main reason to choose the Academy as your music lesson provider, is that we are sensitive to the fact that every student is an individual.
If you enroll here for lessons, we will work with you to make a plan that will fit your needs and musical preferences. At the first lesson your teacher will ask you about your favorite type of music, and set goals to help accomplish whatever musical aspirations you have for yourself or your child.
WHAT STYLES OF MUSIC DO YOU TEACH?
We teach all styles from rock, pop, jazz, country, blues and classical.
ARE YOUR INSTRUCTORS QUALIFIED?
Our teachers have received their education from prestigious institutions such as such as the Juilliard School, Manhattan School of Music, Mannes, NYU, Berklee College of Music, Indiana University and more. Our teachers are active performers and top competition winners. Most importantly, they are experienced teachers, dedicated to helping students grow through patience, kindness, and hard-work
GUITAR and BASS GUITAR LESSONS
(for ages 7 and up)
Our guitar teachers specialize in a variety of styles including rock guitar, jazz and blues guitar, and classical guitar, and encourage each student to choose which style they’re eager to learn! Students learn the important fundamental elements of guitar technique, note and chord reading as well as rhythm and theory. Students are encouraged to play songs they love, such as modern pop songs, but also older classics. Eventually all students have the opportunity to audition for our Rock Band program, which allows them to team up with drum, bass and keyboard students, and experience what it’s like to rehearse and perform like a professional band!
Voice Lessons are available in a variety of styles, including pop, jazz, rock, classical and opera. Our vocal instructors specialize in a variety of styles, including pop vocal and students are encouraged to learn the songs they love! Our European-trained vocal teachers specialize in opera singing, and have trained musicians who have performed at prestigious venues all over the world.
Piano is one of the most essential instruments and is encouraged for most students who are new to music. Piano lessons are available in a variety of styles including classical, jazz and rock. Absolute beginners are taught essential theoretical and technical fundamentals until they are able to branch out in to various styles. Our piano lessons emphasize not only musicality and technique, but important theory concepts such as counting, note-reading, harmony and rhythm.
Drum lessons are an excellent opportunity for students to sharpen their rhythmic skills. Our drum room contains a full drum set, and students are able to practice either at home on their own drum kits or on a practice pad, which is available for purchase for a small price. Drum students are also given the opportunity, once proficient enough, to audition for our Rock Band program, where they’ll get to perform in a band with other music students!
String instrument lessons are taught by our professional, highly established string faculty who have studied in prestigious conservatories of the US and abroad. Many of our string students learn from the Suzuki method as well as supplementary method books, and eventually have the opportunity to audition for our String Ensemble program. The string ensemble program gives the students a chance to play music with their friends, thus furthering their musical development, and instilling in them important ensemble playing skills.
(for ages 8 and up)
Our woodwinds teacher specializes in classical flute, and emphasizes proper technique, note-reading, and theoretical fundamentals. Our winds students are encouraged to participate in school programs, such as band and orchestra, and community activities such as the Bergen Regional Orchestra; programs that are extremely beneficial for students applying for college. Private lessons will allow the students to grow immensely, furthering their potential for orchestral and band programs, as well as solo opportunities.
