We feature lessons in Saxophone (all ranges), clarinet, flute, french horn, bassoon, and oboe. Beginner students can expect to work on correct technique as well as fingerings and embouchure (correctly using the lips, facial muscles, tongue, and teeth in playing a wind instrument). They will also work on reading notes, rhythm, dynamics, and music theory while getting the best possible sound from their instrument. Intermediate to advanced students will learn techniques that will help take their playing to the next level, while enjoying pieces in a variety of genres.
Flute has a rich timbre. The middle to high pitch is bright and resonant, while the bass part is rather mellow and melodious. For this reason, flute is both able to perform a solo, or to play an important role in an orchestra.
Because of the length and weight of the instrument, it is recommended that students start learning the instrument only when they are grown up, preferably around the age of nine. By then they would have their arm strongly developed and long enough to hold a flute in an extended period, also it is easier for them to get hold of the breathing techniques. These are no problem for adult learners, who can understand the teaching of teachers even easier with disciplined practice.
On the right hand are two famous flute master pieces. The top one is Syrinx by Debussy, the bottom one is Flute Concerto No.2 in D Major, K.314 by Mozart. The work by Mozart is relatively playful and joyful, while the one by Debussy is rather calmer and contemplative.
Our vision is to attend to the need and growth of children and establish musical foundation through practicing rhythm, sight-reading and aural exercises in addition to regular lessons. Teachers will adjust the lessons according to individual student, suiting their interest and let them learn in a joyful and fun environment, turning them into young maestro of music.
Other than merely focusing on the physical aspect of playing the instrument, our teachers offer fundamental knowledge on music such as music history, music genre and style from different period, and music theory for students to develop a broad sense in music. We provide 2 - 3 peer performance practices per year for each student as well to learn stage manner, develop confidence and self-recognition, and to overcome stage fright.
