IN HOME MUSIC LESSONS
Beyond the Studio brings music lessons to you, in the convenience of your home with highly qualified and experienced music teachers. Our services are available in Oakville, Burlington, Hamilton, Mississauga and Milton Ontario.
The goal of Beyond the Studio is to nurture a love of music and teach children the joy of making music for themselves.
Many studies show that music education enhances children’s ability to learn in all subject areas. Learning to read music will help encourage your child’s skill in reading, focus and attention span, and hand eye coordination.
Beyond the Studio teachers have a Bachelor of Music and are performing musicians. Our teachers have a minimum of grade 8 Royal Conservatory training or equivalent and previous experience teaching and working with children.
In home music lessons incorporate individual instruction on an instrument – piano, guitar, flute or voice – in a fun and structured environment offering lessons that are motivating and engaging. Instruction in music theory will compliment all music lessons. Children will be given weekly practice schedules. Daily practice is essential to significant progress in learning an instrument or voice. Your child’s progress will be evaluated weekly and the teacher will share improvements and areas for learning with parents following the lesson.
Your teacher will select curriculum and resources based upon your child’s skill level and learning style. Instruction books will be available for purchase from the teacher.
