MusicAlley’s private music lessons focus on developing proper technique, musicality, and performance skills. Our private studio environment allows customizing lessons to each student’s individual goals. Whether the student “just” wants to have some fun and gain some musical experience, or prepare for entry into a performing arts school and beyond, MusicAlley can customize private lessons to support his or her goals.
MusicAlley instructors have extensive experience teaching a wide variety of students. From young children to seniors we can help any student find joy in music making. We also have experience in teaching special needs students including Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADHD, Dyspraxia, and blindness. By working closely with parents and facilitators we strive to identify how to give the best possible musical experience to special needs students.
Music lessons are offered in 30, 45, and 60 minutes lengths.
Musicianship and Theory
In addition to private music lessons, Musicianship Skills & Music Theory Class is designed to develop listening skills (ear training) and singing skills in Solfege (Do-Re-Mi). Students will also learn the principles of how music is put together. Musicianship skills and knowledge of theory are essential to being successful in music education.
Music is performing art. At MusicAlley we do not encourage or train students for competition, but rather prepare them and provide opportunities for live performance. We have a minimum of two formal recitals per year. These recitals are for all voice, instrument, and music theater students. They are held at Azusa Pacific’s Munson Chapel Recital Hall. In order to guarantee performance success, we follow a strict process of preparing students for performance, including several workshops prior to the recital. In addition to formal recitals, we provide informal performance opportunities like a Halloween Open House where students can perform in their costumes, and performing at CiCi’s while family and friends eat pizza!
Certificate of Merit Prep
For those who are interested, MusicAlley can support any student through all levels of Music Teacher’s Association of California Certificate of Merit program.
