Our Approach to Music Lessons
Every time you come to your lesson, we will be ready with a plan made for you. Not one but two teachers will work on the planning for your lesson. Why does it take so much extra effort? Individualization. It’s a best-practice in teaching, and it is our focus as special educators. We use this approach for every one of our students, even if they don’t have exceptional learning needs.
Some instructors insist on a single way of learning an instrument…not Stuart and Melissa! Every student has different musical interests and learning styles. All music teachers should individualize their lessons. We’re dedicated to it. It’s our specialty.
Most of the other music instructors in Tucson work at large commercial locations. It is not easy for them to put so much effort into each session. We don’t serve hundreds of students. That means we are able to focus our energy on optimizing your custom lessons.
Make Music Lessons Fun
If your lessons aren’t fun, you will stop making progress. It’s our job to keep you motivated, engaged, and excited about music. The key is that we love music and we love this job.
Start With Your Foundation
The best way to become a great musician is by mastering the basics. Amazing music takes fundamental technique. Our lessons are going to give you a foundation that we can use for building.
These sound hard to learn but we make them fun and easy:
- Fundamental instrument techniques
- How to read music
- How to play your favorite songs and styles
- How to practice with a band
- Music theory and songwriting
Build Your Strengths
As we work on basic skills, we’ll help you achieve more and more. We are careful not to overload you or make music stressful. You are looking for progress, and that excitement is what turns into music. We are ready to help you amaze yourself.
