WE TEACH FUN, STRUCTURED,
AND REWARDING LESSONS
Our lessons are structured so you learn music fundamentals through the songs you love.
Before we start teaching we discover the student's favorite musical genre and style, so we can focus on the right songs for their level. Then we work on song after song, teaching each fundamental building block at that magic moment when the student needs it to tackle the song. The student earns the amazing feeling of satisfaction and achievement from learning a song they’ve always wanted to play, and gains confidence from knowing that this new learning can be applied to even more songs!
A typical lesson might include rhythm exercises, reading exercises, correct
posture and how to hold your instrument the right way. Here are some more
specifics by instrument:
Students begin playing on the black keys, learning the fingerings of familiar tunes and developing their rhythmic understanding before moving on to playing in different positions on the white keys while learning note names and reading music notation.
With In Tune’s own Play Guitar! curriculum, students start with basic chords and strumming patterns, learn how to read chord charts and tab, and soon move on to reading music notation, all while tackling classic songs along with their favorites.
With In Tune’s own Play Ukulele! curriculum, students start with basic chords and strumming patterns, learn how to read chord charts and tab, while learning to sing their favorite songs.
Students learn to read tab and music notation while mastering bass lines, chord arpeggios, while learning classic and new songs.
Beginning students start with rhythmic studies using hands only, before moving on to the full drum set. Students learn to read music notation while tackling their favorite songs.
Proper warm up and care of the voice is stressed in these lessons, where students learn how to develop proper pitch and timbre while developing their tonality, range and strength.
Students learn strategies to write their own songs (lyric and melody). Through songwriting, we also learn important concepts in music theory.
Proper embouchure, breathing, and tone production is stressed here as students learn their scales, develop their range and learn songs and build their repertoire.
A positive and productive way to learn!
More than 50 years ago, Dr. Shinichi Suzuki realized the implications of
children learning their native language with ease and how children might learn to play music in the same way. In Tune is proud to offer violin an guitar lessons from teachers specialized in the Suzuki method.
