ADAPTIVE LESSONS

These music lessons are modified to foster the joy of music while focusing on your child’s unique styles of learning. Through adaptive lessons students will learn a specific instrument while also working on increasing attention, creativity and expression, hand-eye coordination, self-esteem, self-discipline, and problem solving skills. Adaptive lessons are currently available for piano, voice, and guitar.
