Music Lessons

Piano Melodies Studio has been offering piano lessons since 2008!

Because the piano is such a visual instrument, piano lessons are a great introduction to music!

Lessons include a balance of musicianship, theory, technique, repertoire and music history.

Students are taught with variety of materials based around the Conservatory Canada or Royal Conservatory of Music (RCM) system.

  • Exams are optional goals that are agreed upon by teacher, parent and students

MUSICIANSHIP: Students will learn with the help of solfege how to make music and play expressively.

Students will explore both the sound, patterns and structure of even the simplest pieces in order to learn to play music that sounds good. As a helpful tool to enhance reading music.

THEORY: Music theory is taught not just through work books, but through practical application of pieces and analyses

TECHNIQUE: How to play piano efficiently is encouraged through a full body approach to technique. In order to avoid injury and enhance playing skill and musicality

MUSIC HISTORY: Topics of music history and style are incorporated into lessons.
