Composing Class

Hello Music Room families! As many of you know, I constantly bemoan the fact that there's so MUCH I want to do with the kids that 30 minutes a week just doesn't allow, composing being one of those things. 

I'm delighted to announce that this year, included in your tuition, is an invitation to a Composer's Club, a monthly event on a Friday night at my home for teens and more advanced students. We'll be exploring lots of composition concepts and putting them into practice. Here's a taste of what we'll be exploring (translated to piano, of course!)

One thing that sets The Music Room apart from other studios is individualized instruction. There is no one size fits all. I employ a variety of methods and music to help each student connect with music and be able to express themselves effectively according to their learning style and personality. Here are just a few of the books and methods Music Room students will be using this fall!
