PIANO LESSONS

BEGINING TO INTERMEDIATE LEVEL

PIANO LESSONS

I teach a classic note reading method using the Bastien Piano Basics books. This means that the student must be at least a beginner reader to be able to comprehend music note reading. The four books (Piano, Theory, Technic and Performance) work together to provide a well-balanced approach to learning the piano. Other method books may be used as well as songs from various collections or the internet. As students learn and express interest in other musical styles, I begin to introduce them as requested. The student will learn all the elements of reading music, piano playing techniques, scales and chords, playing in different keys and learn how to improvise from chord charts. Lesson costs are $20 per 30 min., $30 per 45 min., and $40 per hour.

CLARINET LESSONS

BEGINING TO ADVANCED LEVEL

CLARINET LESSONS

Clarinet students must be at least 11 years of age. Sharon's Music Studio uses the Rubank method books for clarinet instruction. Other method and etude books may be used. The student will learn proper maintenance and handling of the clarinet, reed care and honing, proper clarinet playing techniques, and all the elements of reading music. Solos and duets will be incorporated. I help students prepare for competitions and auditions. Lesson costs are $20 per 30 min., $30 per 45 min., and $40 per hour.

PIANO TUNING AND MINOR REPAIRS

SERVICES

PIANO TUNING AND MINOR REPAIRS

The average piano needs to be tuned at least once a year or twice if it is played regularly. Changes in temperature and humidity and moving a piano will also result in a piano going out of tune. I offer piano tuning services for pianos in homes, studios, churches, schools, businesses and performance halls. If a piano has not been tuned regularly and is very flat, it may require a pitch raise. The cost of a tuning will depend on how much work needs to be done on the piano. Please contact Sharon’s Music Studio for a consultation. Other services offered are a thorough cleaning and a wood treatment/polish. There may be additional charges for travel further than 25 miles.
