About Our String Lessons Program
Strings instruction is offered in a private setting in 30, 45, or 60 minute lesson intervals on a weekly basis. Our strings lessons can be scheduled anytime on first-come, first-serve basis by appointment. We teach students of any age, skill level, and musical interests. Our Strings Program is designed to instruct beginners, intermediate and advanced strings students ages 3.5 and up with causal to classical music interest. Variety of different styles such as classical/traditional, suzuki, jazz, country and folk are incorporated into strings lessons based on student’s interests. We do our best to accommodate everyone’s schedules from evening lessons for busy professionals, lunch time lessons for senior citizens, or earlier day time classes for very small children. All strings lessons are scheduled by appointment and can be initiated all year round.
Instructors and Types of Music We Teach
Our instructors are professionals in their field and teach a variety of different styles of music such as classical/traditional, pop, jazz, rock, Christian, and blues. We teach our strings students using a combination of major teaching methods including Faber, Suzuki, Bastian, Alfred and traditional technique. Our strings teachers tailor the methodology to student’s personality and goals. Whatever your goals are, our strings teachers are here to help you and customize a lesson plan for you. Above all, we focus on developing the skills that are most stimulating to each student and strive to make our lessons fun and exciting experience for each student.
QCMS sponsors several events each year to encourage students to set goals, practice, and celebrate their accomplishments. Solo recitals are held three times a year in Spring, Fall and Winter. Each Recital finalizes one of the three Sessions at QCMS allowing students to set and accomplish the goals for each term.
Practice and Parental Support
Sufficient and proper practice is necessary to ensure progress. Most children require parental guidance in organizing their time to accomplish the goals set during lessons. We believe in the importance of the triangle: student, parent, and teacher — all working together. All students are different, and it is our belief that all children can learn to play piano with the proper guidance and support. Developing a love of music in addition to making music is our ultimate goal.
