Music Lessons

  • Do you have a particular style of music you want to learn?
  • Are you frustrated that you never learned to read notes well?
  • Do you wish you could learn how to improvise?

Here at Paige School of Music you will receive lessons individually tailored to meet your goals. Students are given the opportunity to participate in a wide range of musical experiences. Here are some examples of activities and projects we’ve completed:

  • Senior recitals
  • Cafe recitals
  • “Victor Borga” athletic and comedy competition recital
  • Compose a violin or piano solo accompanied by a 3-piece “percussion” ensemble
  • Compose a sound-track to an animated short film
  • Create a music history portfolio of famous composers
  • Studio parties twice a year
  • Music technology in our lessons
  • Lots of music games and activities for children

Choose from the following instruments:

  • Piano (Ages 5 and up)
  • Violin (Ages 5 and up)

Piano Curriculum: Students follow the National Piano Guild syllabus. Students study classical literature, keyboard patterns such as scales and chords, technique, accompanying, and improvisation. Based on a student’s interest, training can lean more heavily towards classical music or towards blues, jazz and pop. Students also study an excellent sight-singing and ear-training program that gives them the tools to play by ear and compose music. I teach piano students beginning through early advanced levels.

Violin Curriculum: Students study a mix of both classical literature, fiddle music, and violin patterns such as scales and arpeggios. Based on a student’s interest, training can lean more heavily towards classical music or towards fiddle repertoire. Piano study is also incorporated into lessons as it is an excellent aid for the study of theory, ear-training and composition. I teach violin students beginning through intermediate levels. Students also have the opportunity to participate in a multi-level string group that meets approximately twice a month.

TuitionPrivate lessons are taken once a week. Tuition is due at the first lesson of each month. There are approximately 36 lessons during the school year. Students continuing in the fall are required to schedule a minimum of 7 summer lessons. Payments are made in equal monthly installments.
