Students at Sonica Studios will progress from beginner to advanced piano
studies through a combination of method books, Royal Conservatory of
Music materials, and supplemental resources in a variety of styles.
Emphasis is placed on developing comprehensive musicianship through
the integrated study of technique, theory, history, repertoire, and
listening skills. In addition, students will have the option of exploring
related fields such as improvisation, composition, and world music.
Group theory lessons are also available at a discounted rate.
Students will have the opportunity to take advantage of the many technological
resources available in the studio. Lessons will include access to educational
music software, audio and video recording equipment, and music publishing
services. Students will be able to see and hear recordings of their playing,
see their compositions in print, and share their accomplishments with
people around the globe!
Music is an art form that is meant to be explored and shared with others.
Students will meet one another in informal gatherings and perform publicly
in recitals; they will develop ensemble experience through duets and
accompanying opportunities. Further, all students will be encouraged
to attend and participate in arts-related events in the community in
order to develop an appreciation for forms of expression that are beyond
the scope of private piano instruction.
