Instrument Sampler (Beginner)

(Gr 1-5)

Your child will find their new passion in this semester-long adventure through the world of music. Designed for those who are new to music, students will experiment with various instruments, and experience various music styles. In-class use of keyboard, guitar, ukulele, and percussion are included in this class, however in order to get the most of the experience, your child will want to rent or own the instrument they are studying at any given time so that they can practice at home. Learn basic music theory, ear training and rhythm while finding your musical voice!

Time: 3:00-4:00pm

Private Lessons

Private lessons provide focused, one-on-one instruction with a master teacher. Students will spend the lesson time being shown all that is necessary for them to practice during the week in preparation for their next lesson, so that they can consistently progress.

Semi-Private Lessons

Semi-Private lessons allow for two students in the same lesson with a master teacher. Students should be within 2 yrs of age of each other, studying the same instrument, at the same level.  As with private lessons, practice is the key to success.

Private and Semi-Private lessons are scheduled weekly during the term and are offered in 30, 45, or 60 minute intervals. Other than keyboards, which will be available for on-site use, each student must bring their own instrument to the lesson each week. Limited rentals from GRSM are available for keyboards, ukuleles and guitars at a rate of $20/month.

Recitals are included in tuition and will be held at the end of each semester for all registered students who are interested.

Private/Semi-Private instruction is offered at TMS as listed below. The starting age varies depending on the instrument. We have lessons available from ages 6 yrs and up.

Thursdays – 2:00-3:00pm and 4:00-6:00pm

Instructor – Hayes Cummings
