At Mindful Music Academy, we think that individual lessons offers the best instrumental skill learning because the lesson is fitted to the individual's needs, learning styles, short term and long term goals. In one-on-one lessons, musical creativity can be customized to that student's aptitude and yearning.
Some of our current students in individual lessons are three, four years old. Others are seventy seven years old.
Each student is unique with different needs, background and preference in musical styles. Students and teachers mindfully choose together the best option for the kind of learning a student wants to best develop that student's creative potential.
Music is a tool to learn to get ready to learn, in mind and body. Combining music practice with posture, breath, and focus improves a person's general employable skill, not to mention the fact that presenting to a public now and then is also a public "speaking" opportunity.
Students may want to explore song writing while learning the instrument, or to improvise, or to self-accompany while singing.
Each student also learn differently.
Some may want to learn mainly by imitation and by ear instead of learning to read notes intensely, or learn chord symbols like guitarists instead of learning note reading. Some prefer to learn songs they know in their inner ears, others prefer to learn the skill of reading notes and rhythm. Some would combine many approaches in order to secure a base, and yet build one favorite song quickly for fun.
Open and constant communication is the way teachers at Mindful Music Academy and their students (and their parents) keep track of each others' engagement and grow to be the most joyful and skillful musician they can be.
