FOR ALL AGES AND ALL LEVELS
Santa Teresa Academy of Music and Dance offers the following music lessons in the following instruments: piano, guitar, voice, violin, drums, and ukulele.
Our lessons are offered year round. Learning a musical instrument is an ongoing process that requires regular and continuous practice to maintain technique. We have found that lengthy breaks in instruction greatly slow down a student's progress and often lead to frustration and loss of interest. By providing instruction without seasonal breaks, our students show consistent and steady progress on their instrument.
All our music students receive private, one-on-one instruction. We have found that the focused concentration of individual one-on-one lessons is the best way to get started on any musical instrument. Beginning students are ensured that the fundamental techniques need to correctly and safely play an instrument are learned. As a student progresses, private lessons allow the student to master the advanced techniques of their instrument.
Another feature that is unique to our school is the Musical Ladder System, which is a way for students to earn wristbands and trophies as they progress. Similar to the karate belt system, our students are given challenges based on what they are studying, and we've found it is a wonderful way to not only keep students interested and motivated, but it's a great way to reward and recognize their hard work.

Are all Music Studios the Same?
Music lessons at our academy are enriched by multiple performance opportunities, such as playing with other musicians in a group setting or playing a solo in one of our recitals.
Instructors tailor lessons to the goals and learning style of each music student. We offer 30 minute and 60 minute private lessons.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
WHAT DO YOU LEARN IN YOUR MUSIC LESSONS?
Our teachers make it a priority to get to know you on a personal level and to become familiar with your personal musical needs and goals. We do not treat every student the same in terms of what and how we teach. A five-year-old having their first guitar lesson will have very different needs than a fifty-seven-year-old taking up piano for the 2nd time after having had lessons as a child. The main reason to choose Santa Teresa Academy of Music and Dance as your music lesson provider is that we are sensitive to the fact that every student is an individual. If you enroll here for lessons, we will work with you to make a plan that will fit your needs and musical preferences. At the first lesson your teacher will ask you about your favorite type of music, and set goals to help accomplish whatever musical aspirations you have for yourself or your child.
WHAT STYLES OF MUSIC DO YOU TEACH?
We teach all styles from rock to pop, jazz, country, blues and classical.
ARE YOUR INSTRUCTORS QUALIFIED?
Our teachers have either University training or professional performance/teaching experience. Our music teachers are dedicated to learning about your personal goals (or your child's) and helping you to achieve them.

Our piano teachers teach a variety of styles from classical to popular music. Whether you want to learn a classical sonatina, rock chords, or popular sheet music, our teachers are happy to help you become the pianist you want to be. Our piano faculty will show you the fundamentals of sight reading, technique and theory, but they will also incorporate your favorite songs into your lessons. Our piano teachers have warm personalities and enjoy sharing their love for the piano with you.
It is ideal if you do have a piano at home, but you can start lessons with our piano teachers by using an electric keyboard to practice on. Most of our students rent or buy small electric keyboards practice on at home. We recommend a keyboard that has regular sized keys and a touch sensitive response. A touch sensitive keyboard means if you press a key harder it will play louder and if you press a key softer it will play quieter.
Our guitar teachers teach rock, blues, metal, country and classical guitar lessons on electric and acoustic guitars. Beginner students can expect to work on chords, simple songs and melodies, sight reading, and theory. We balance musicianship and fun by making sure that each lesson you are challenged with a new technical or theory concept, but always end with something fun such as your favorite riff or song. We use a variety of guitar method books to accomplish this and encourage students to bring CDs or their iPod to their lesson to learn their favorite tunes. Our teachers can even help you with guitar repair: such as the set up of your guitar or replacing your strings!
Our private voice teachers primarily focus on popular music and musical theatre songs. If you have always wanted to be a better rock, pop, country, jazz, gospel, theatre, or R&B singer, then we have the right voice teachers for you! Voice students spend time each week doing physical exercises to improve their vocal range, ear training, breath control, vibrato, tone production, enunciation and more. All voice students set goals with their teacher to work on sounding like their favorite recording artists, preparing for a theatre audition, or if they prefer, to develop their own unique voice.
Our violin instructors will teach all styles of music, from learning to play by ear to reading music. If you want to play classical music or the fiddle, we have a teacher for you. Students can be as young as 5 years old, or younger with the teacher's approval. Our students love learning the fundamentals, as well as incorporating your favorite songs into their lessons. Our violin teachers have friendly personalities and love working with children and teens and adults!
Our drum instructors will teach all styles of music, from learning to play by ear to reading music. If you want to play rock, country, jazz, gospel or blues, we have a teacher for you. Students can be as young as 5 years old, or younger with the teacher's approval. Our students love learning the fundamentals, as well as incorporating your favorite songs into their lessons. Our drum teachers have friendly personalities and love working with children and teens and adults!
