When You're Serious about the Best Music Instruction
for your Children Available on the Olympic Peninsula
It matters who teaches your children - even from the first lessons! Be sure to check out credentials of any teacher before starting lessons. Here's a helpful link from the Music Teachers National Association website:
Piano and Theory are available as well as tutorials in Sibelius (tm) Software.
High School and Peninsula College credit are available through OMS.
Private music instruction is offered for students from ages 6 - 18. I believe in training the whole musician, in that students learn to read notes and rhythms, study theory and aspects of music history. It is our goal to give all students a life-long love and appreciation and understanding of music whether or not they pursue a career in the industry.
What I expect:
Students will not enjoy lessons if they do not make steady progress. To this end, students should plan to maintain a regular practice schedule to assure reasonable progress. Parents are expected to actively monitor students' home practice times. Lessons for K - 12 students are scheduled on a weekly basis only with appropriate breaks during the year for holidays and vacations.
A complete studio policy can be found here: studio policy.
During the past ten years, I have taught students who have been accepted at the following universities and colleges in music:
I offer a no-cost interview to meet with students and parents. At this time, you can discuss individual studio policy and see if OMS is the right choice for you and your child. Please call or write an appointment.
