As Presto Piano Studio’s main teacher, Miss Amy illuminates the joys of playing the piano for kids as young as 8 years old. She accepts students up to the age of 18, and she focuses her lessons on giving beginners a proper musical introduction, one that will reward them as a creative outlet throughout their lives. Though Miss Amy believes mastering the piano takes perseverance and practice, she also thinks it's the easiest instrument to learn, especially in her studio’s kid-friendly environment. Plus, music education makes students smarter and more likely to name their pet after obscure 19th-century Austrian composers. Every student starts off with four private lessons before moving to group lessons with students of a similar age and ability level.
"Learning to play music should be fun" states Bach to Rock's philosophy. "It's called play for a reason." This warm, inviting spirit permeates everywhere students work individually or in groups with seasoned players to improve their skills in guitar, voice, drums, piano, keyboard, and even in turntables. They then put their musicianship to practical use in extended jam sessions, learning how to be expressive and glue their instrument back together after smashing it. Once pupils have progressed to a professional level, they can check out Bach to Rock's professional recording studio, which are open to artists who want to lay down tracks for an album or fine-tune their already-existing songs.
The instructors at Global Music Academy design lessons on musical instruments, voice, dance, and art that go deeper than “practice makes perfect.” They surround their technical pointers with theoretical context, encouraging students to hone their guitar strums and piano chords while delving into musical history and sight-reading. For advanced classes, instructors invite celebrated musicians to inspire pupils through lectures, demonstrations, and ventriloquist acts. Their dance teachers draw from countless global influences to arrange their curriculum, covering Bollywood, hula, ballet, and tap. During art class, employees outline classic styles as adults and children sketch their original works.
The staff also appreciates the social benefits of their teachings. They head an after-school program and various summer camps to introduce youngsters to the fine arts, which often culminate in confidence-boosting performances. Options for toddlers—such as Mommy & Me dance classes and rhythmic Kindermusik sessions—tune into tactics for mental and motor development.
