Sylvia's Music Studio
Expect to see your child or yourself learn theory, technique, scales, sight reading, musicality ( the art of playing artistically) and more
I am pleased when I view my students growing in their talent and becoming confident and competant not ONLY MUSICALLY...BUT in taking a more mature approach as they develop into responsible citizens. Many of my students now have chosen careers in music!! I take great interest in my students and have high expectations but use a warm approach and SHOW THEM WHERE IMPROVEMENT needs to happen

Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
I include 4 basic books, Lesson, Theory, Technique and Performance. The cost is approximately $30.00 to provide a way to isolate each skill and give my students a thorough and complete understanding of music at their level of understanding. Faber and Faber is an excellent series and I use it extensively. i also, recommend Hanon exercises as well as Czerny and others. FIngerpower is essential and I recommend a rhythm workbook, manuscript paper and Note Speller to enhance understanding and for the practice of note writing (notation) I am patient and attempt to meet each student half way. We have a lot of fun in the process. This help build rapport and trust
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
44+ years of experience...public and private schools...teaching music; teaching music privately for almost as long.
