2) Adult Piano Lessons

3) Ukulele Lessons


 

Student Piano Lessons

Piano lessons for students are scheduled weekly throughout the school year with Summer lessons being optional.

Through Amy’s well-rounded musical approach, students learn quickly from the start. A variety of individual, buddy, and group instruction throughout the year means students are able to learn at their own pace, becoming independent learners and thinkers while also getting peer interaction.

Always utilizing up-to-date teaching practices and technology in the studio, assignments and practice tools such as audio and video recordings are provided to assist students in their practice at home throughout the week.

FAQ’s

Are there any performances? Yes, students are offered several opportunities throughout the year. These include Christmas performances, a Spring recital, and occasional nursing home or other performances.

What if we can’t make a lesson? While last-minute/day-of cancellations may be forfeited, the way I schedule lessons generally allows for flexibility in scheduling. If a student is not feeling well, the weather outside is not safe, or a worldwide pandemic occurs(!), lessons will be offered online via Zoom or FaceTime. Alternatively, I will record a short video lesson for the student.

Adult Piano Lessons

Do you regret not learning the piano growing up or wish your parents wouldn’t have let you quit as a child?

Piano lessons are a wonderful blessing for many adults whether you’re looking to simply play for fun, keep your mind active, or pull out the old piano tunes you love so well.

To allow flexibility in adult schedules, lessons are offered in an à la carte format. You will attend once a week for six weeks at a time. After that, you can choose to continue for another six or call it good!

FAQ’s

What happens if I need to miss a week? You have 8 weeks to complete the 6 lessons, giving you a couple of weeks of flexibility to miss if needed.

Ukulele Lessons

Studio 88 offers beginner Ukulele lessons only. Ukulele is an easy and “portable” way to have fun with music!

Lessons are set up in an à la carte format. Students attend once a week for six weeks at a time. Many students find they learn enough basics to enjoy playing tons of tunes they know in just 6-12 weeks!

Due to the nature of the fine motor skills required of the fingers to play Uke, it is recommended students be in at least 3rd grade.

FAQ’s

Do I need my own Uke? Yes, absolutely. You’ll want a case as well for safe transport to lessons and storage at home.

What kind? There are several types of Ukulele’s but you will want a “concert” or “soprano”. My preference is the concert Uke because they’re a little larger and have a warmer sound than the soprano. Here’s my favorite Ukulele on Amazon; great sound, good price, and it comes with a case.

Anything else? Yes, you will also need a tuner. You can either get the kind that clips onto the Ukulele or, if your student has access to a device when playing, simply download the free app Guitar Tuna.

What happens if I need to miss a week? You have 8 weeks to complete the 6 lessons, giving you a couple of weeks of flexibility to miss if needed.
