One of the first questions we get from new students, is "what kind of music should I study?" Whether you're 8 or 48, we encourage our students to pursue the music they are passionate about. If you love what you're learning, you'll be more likely to practice, think about lessons outside of your lesson time, and LOVE your lessons and your teacher! That being said, here are some things to consider as you make the decision about the type of music to study...
You may want to study classical music if:
*You want to get a college degree in music, or think you might want to!
*It's important to you to know how to read written music
*You love the classical composers like Beethoven, Bach, and Mozart, and want to play their music!
*You are starting music young, like before age 12
You may want to skip classical music if:
*You are a later beginner like a teen or an adult
*Your main goal is to play for enjoyment or with your church's worship team
*You know you have a short attention span and need quick payoff from lessons to stick with it
*You are mostly interested in songs you hear on the radio or at church
We offer combination lessons, if you need a little of both! Classical music gives a great foundation of theory and technique, and is important, but we don't believe it is always the best route for students. We can also teach theory using contemporary music - talk to us for details. Call 719-749-1515 for a free consultation!
