Our piano teachers teach a variety of styles from classical to popular music. They instruct students in the fundamentals of sight reading, technique and theory, but they will also incorporate students’ favourite songs into lessons. Beginning, Intermediate and Advanced piano lessons in Edmonton are available.
Students do not need an acoustic piano at home to take lessons. A simple keyboard is suitable for beginners. A keyboard with 88 keys is ideal; however, lessons can still be taught on a keyboard that has less than 88 keys (count the white as well as the black keys). Weighted keys are also essential, so that they have the look and feel of an acoustic piano.
If you have an acoustic piano, please be sure to have it tuned prior to lessons beginning. Acoustic pianos require a good string-tuning to produce clear, accurate music. Otherwise, every note played will sound off-key. Please contact us and we can refer a reputable piano technician who can come to your home to tune your piano.
Our guitar teachers teach rock, blues, metal, country and classical music on electric and acoustic guitars, depending on the student’s preference. They show students the fundamentals of playing using chords, sight reading, technique and theory, but they will also incorporate students’ favourite songs or riffs into lessons.
Be sure that you pick the right size guitar. There are plenty of guitars sized for children and adults available at musical instrument stores.
Our voice instructors primarily focus on popular music, but can also focus on rock, pop, country, jazz, gospel or R&B. Voice students spend time each week doing physical exercises to improve their vocal range, ear training, breath control, vibrato, tone production, enunciation and more. All voice students set goals with their teacher to work on sounding like their favourite recording artists, or if they prefer, to develop their own unique voice. Beginning, Intermediate and Advanced lessons are available.
Most children and teens love to sing and voice lessons can be a great way to foster that love into a true talent. It is important to make sure that students are singing properly and not developing any bad habits. Our voice teachers help students develop their tone, increase their range and learn the songs that they want to sing.
