Other Lessons Options
At Elevate we teach piano students how to play live in their own band, however, they also learn to read music, study theory and have a solid traditional piano lesson to build upon. We use the Faber Piano Adventures – Sight Reading, Lesson & Theory books along with our own Elevate Chord Families book in core lessons.
The key is to bring in songs the students like to listen to. Chords learned from songs they choose point back to theory and back to reading music. They start to see how it’s all connected and grow a new appreciation for the well-rounded concept of reading music, understanding theory and playing by ear.
We believe whole-heartedly in our buddy system which brings in the concept of learning fundamentals with a peer. It makes the process more fun and energized plus offers new and innovative teaching opportunities. Our goal is to inspire and keep fun in the mix. The buddy system enables us to do exactly that!
Part of being a musician is performing with a group. There is so much to learn once you step on that stage and our students have that opportunity within their own band!
Every other week at Elevate is Rock Band; a student favorite for sure! The time the kids spend on stage is vital to their growth as young musicians: counting in the song, getting the right pitch, listening, staying together in tempo, eye contact, dynamics, emotion, movement etc. As the students work through their songs on stage our teachers are right there to coach and teach them every step of the way!
