Staying busy is a way of life for Joel Willson. An accomplished multi-instrumentalist, his specialties include piano, violin, guitar, and mandolin. As a teacher, he's instructed high-school master classes and served as an elementary school artist-in-residence. He channels these dual passions at Baton Rouge Music Lessons, where he teaches keys and strings while his wife, Amy, handles flute. The pair's studio accommodates private and group lessons, which enrich each student's musical knowledge by dabbling in a variety of styles, including classical, country, and jazz.
From two locations, SuperMusic's passionate instructors corral fledgling musicians and instill a passion for music, making the learning process fun and engaging. The school also offers performance opportunities through its Perform program, encouraging students to showcase their skills during a musical at the end of every year and a short film each spring.
James and Alicia Bourdier strive to share their passion for music with their students at helm Bon Temps Misique through lessons for anyone ages 4 and up. The duo specializes in areas of instruction that include instruments such as piano, drums, woodwinds, and brass, and they also offer composition and theory classes.
Founded as a piano restoration business in 1958, Hall Piano Company has since expanded its repertoire. The company's technicians still restore pianos, but now pianists also teach students of all ages to coax music from the keys. The instructors draw on extensive education and decades of experience to help students build a foundation of musical knowledge. When they're ready, students can show off their skills on the studio's recital stage, which is equipped with Steinway concert grand pianos and broadcasting technology that lets loved ones watch and listen from afar.
