[Classroom Photo]Student Lessons

Lessons of 30, 45, or 60 min. are available during each semester. This is designed for the student who has successfully completed his elementary music study in the group setting and is now ready to move onto the intermediate work of piano study.

The emphasis will be on technical skills, sight reading, ensemble playing, performing, and building a repertoire.

In addition to the lesson time each private student will work alone for 30 minutes before or after their private lesson. Activities change each week to include computer theory and ear training games, music videos, written theory papers and reading The Explorer Music Magazine.

Evaluations & Progress Reports

Students are evaluated after each semester on technique, theory and ear training by the music school. Progress reports will be sent out half way through each semester.

At the end of the year Level two and up are evaluated by The American Guild of Music Teachers or the New Hampshire Teachers Association.

Achievement Book & Certificate Program

Each student is given an achievement book at the beginning of the year to work on and to complete by the end of the year. The teacher assigns most of the work in the achievement book. The parent and student are responsible for two achievements : 1. attend a live performance /include the program and 2. participate at the retirement home performances scheduled by the music school. A ribbon is awarded on the last recital in June for successful completion of the achievement book. The prescribed curriculum is what makes up all the activities in the achievement book.
