Music Lessons

4 & 5 Year Olds (Weekly 1/2 hour lessons on piano only)

The student will receive individual attention on piano for 30 minutes. The lesson will focus on training the young students' ear as well as developing coordination; first through clapping rhythmic patterns and reciting syllables, then through mimicking melodic phrases, developing his/her manual dexterity on the piano while discovering his/her new singing voice. Sparking an interest in music is key at this stage, no reading or writing assignments will be given. Parent or guardian should be present during lesson and may be asked to participate.

6 Years to Adult (Weekly 1 hour lessons on any instrument)

Each student will receive individual attention on his/her instrument for a full 60 minutes. At this point, reading and writing music is introduced to younger students and beginners. All students will receive written homework assignments with an integrated and comprehensive approach to music theory, as well as being given scales and finger exercises for daily practice. The student will learn selected songs appropriate for his/her level. Various styles of music and artistic influences will be covered from classical to contemporary. Lessons will also cover ear training and sight reading drills. Students are expected to practice and complete homework assignments on time. All children are encouraged to perform at the Spring Recital in June.

Lessons in the Studio are scheduled Monday through Friday between the hours of 3pm and 8pm. Saturdays by appointments only.

Lessons in your home are scheduled on Saturdays and Sundays. You must call to find out the current schedule as availability may change each month and each quarter.

Registration must be done in person at the Studio to receive your free orientation lesson.

Music books and other supplies can also be purchased at the Studio.

Guitar students must have their own instrument to practice on at home and to bring to class. If not, we will send you to our favorite stores to purchase your first guitar!

Piano students must have a piano or keyboard to practice on at home. If not, you can purchase a keyboard for around $200, ask us, we’ll tell you where!

Fort Greene Music Scene will find you a new or used piano at no charge if you are already a registered student. We also have moving and tuning services available!

Note to parents: Music lessons require patience and commitment on the part of both student and parent. If we are going to see your child develop his/her musical talent and ability, your participation and cooperation are greatly needed. To make any real progress, practicing every day and coming to lessons every week and on time is very important. It is imperative that you are supportive and encouraging in the home. It is difficult and frustrating to teach a child who is always unprepared. Please make sure your child’s homework assignments are completed before the next lesson and that they bring all necessary books and sheet music with them every week. To receive your full hour, please arrive promptly as lessons are scheduled back to back. Students who are always tardy and unprepared may be asked to leave.

Learning music is a wonderful and rewarding experience. It will help to channel your child’s creative energy and develop a feeling of confidence. It is an investment in their future as well as yours. We look forward to watching your child grow through music.
