YOUTH & ADOLESCENT LESSONS
Lesson plans for adolescents are structured in a way to keep the sessions fun and upbeat while still learning valuable music fundamentals. Children often need to have lessons changed or altered during the session in order to keep them engaged and motivated to learn. Student activities include simple strumming patterns, learning basic melodies, singing, clapping rhythms, listening games and music worksheets.
Lesson plans for beginner students start with basic posture and music fundamentals. Students are given exercises that engage core elements of music such as scales, chords and learning simple melodies. Lessons are tailored to the interests of the student and they are encouraged to work on personal musical interest such as styles of music or bands they are familiar with.
Lesson plans for intermediate students work to improve and expand on existing music fundamentals such as scales, arpeggios, chords, theory, sight-reading and repertoire. More advanced techniques dealing with musical phrasing, dynamics and articulation are focused on. Repertoire is also advanced to include longer passages of music and greater theoretical understanding of their current studies. Intermediate students are also encouraged to work on and develop music styles and bands they are interested in.
Lessons for advanced musicians are specifically designed to improve overall technique and repertoire. Students are given songs and exercises that will help to progress their chosen style of music. Important artists, composers and compositions are studied and discussed.
