Malam Gala Kesenian yang cemerlang

Sungguh jelas terbayang di wajah setiap warga SSJB akan kepuasan dan kegembiraan setelah berjaya melaksanakan satu majlis untuk meraikan kejayaan pelajar dalam bidang kesenian yang dipelajari oleh mereka. klik sini



Setiap pelajar daripada jumlah 166 orang kesemuanya terlibat dalam produksi tersebut.
Sama ada dalam bidang teater, visual, tari dan muzik.

Tidak lupa juga mereka yang bertugas di belakang tabir turut menyumbangkan tenaga mereka degan penuh komited seterusnya membuahkan satu kejayaan produksi yang gilang gemilang dan diiktiraf sendiri oleh Dato Hjh Noor Rezan binti Bapoo Hashim (Timb KPPM.



Tapi sayang rakaman daripada Video sekolah kurang dari segi mutunya. Adalah diharapkan kepada mereka yang telah membuat rakaman video dapat menghantarkannya kepada pihak sekolah untuk dibuat satu DVD yang telah diedit. Sila hubungi pihak sekolah 07-2262100 jika anda ingin membantu dan memberikan sumbangan tersebut.

Sebagai jurulatih muzik, aku amat berbangga dengan persembahan pelajar yang memainkan peranan yang besar sepanjang perjalanan produksi dalam bentuk , nyanyian, muzik latar, gabungan muzik gamelan yang memukau penonton, iringan muzik untuk kumpulan koir semuanya dimainkan secara 'live'.



Sekalung tahniah kepada semua musician. Semoga anda akan menjadi pemuzik yang profesional pada masa akan datang. Teruskan latihan...

Lawatan Pelajar Jepun

Hari ini seramai 22 orang pelajar sekolah dari Narita, Jepun telah membuat lawatan ke SSJB.
Mujur salah seorang daripada jurulatih kita, iaitu En Abdul Jabar adalah merupakan seorang guru bahasa Jepun di Sek Sains Raub, Pahang sebelum menjadi jurulatih Seni Tari.

Maka beliaulah yang telah banyak membantu sekolah dalam mengatur program lawatan tersebut.
Selain berperanan sebagai juruacara berbahasa Jepun, beliau juga menterjemahkan perkataan-perkataan yang kami tidak faham.



Pada lawatan tersebut pelajar-pelajar telah menunjukkan persembahan kebudayaan yang dimulakan oleh sambutan paluan kompang dan gerakan silat semasa ketibaan rombongan dari Jepun itu.

Di Dewan Mini pula, pelajar-pelajar SSJB telah membuat persembahan seperti tarian zapin, tarian kontemporari, gamelan, lagu Jepun (Mi-raei) dan persembahan kumpulan ghazal.

Sebelum itu Cik Hjh Rohana telah memulakan majlis dengan ucapan bagi menyambut kedatangan rombongan dari Jepun ini.

Pelajar Jepun pula turut menunjukkan bakat mereka dalam kesenian dengan menunjukkan demonstrasi Karate, Koir, dan origami.

Selepas majlis sambutan selesai, pelajar telah dipecahkan kepada beberapa kumpulan dan aku ditugaskan untuk memberi tunjuk ajar tentang permainan gamelan dibantu oleh pelajar dari kelas 2 Zapin.

Sungguh mengkagumkan aku, yang mereka memang fast learner, dah boleh main lagu Timang burung dalam masa 10 minit aje aku ajar.

Memang music is universal, yang penting ada skor dan faham apa yang aku nak sampaikan walaupun budak jepun tu sepatah haram pun tak paham bahasa inggeris.

Kadang-kadang guna bahasa isyarat aje. Yang penting teknik mengajar kot.

Pada penghujung lawatan, pelajar ssjb dan pelawat makan bersama dan pihak pelawat dai Jepun telah menanam pokok sebagai kenangan lawatan mereka ke sekolah ini.

Majlis penutup diakhiri dengan pertukaran cenderamata dan tarian pelajar jepun (bon ondori) manakala pelajar ssjb telah menyampaikan finale iaitu sebuah lagu jepun nyanyian Diana Adha iaitu "Sakuyaki" berentak bosanova dan rasa sayang beramai-ramai.

Sekian dan pada bulan November pula, pelajar dari Sekolah Seni Jepun pula akan melawat ke sekolah ini. Tunggulah ye

10 Great Reasons Why You Should Learn to Play Piano Today

Start learning to play piano today! Learning to play the piano is one of the best things you could do for yourself. If you have even the slightest desire to play piano, you should start right away! Read on to find out ten great reasons to learn to play the piano!

1) Learning to play piano has never been easier.
There are many ways to learn to play piano. You could learn piano by taking private lessons with a teacher, reading online tutorials, or using piano course books and watching DVD's.

2) Learning to play piano is a lot more affordable than you may think.
At the cost of eating out, you can purchase a good instructional DVD or book. I am particularly a fan of DVD's, since you can see and hear a lesson as many times as you want. It's almost like having a private teacher by your side 24 hours a day. Piano course books are also great. Many piano course books are now accompanied by an audio CD which lets you listen to the lessons inside the book.

3) Learning to play piano will give you something to share with your children or grand children.
Children naturally love music. You can entertain them with your favorite children songs. You might even attract enough of their interest that they will also want to learn! Give your children the gift of music.

4) Learning to play piano will give you the ability to perform your favorite songs anytime you feel like it! Everyone usually has a few songs in mind that they wished they could just sit down and play. Well, there is no better time than now to make that dream come true! Piano sheet music for all levels of difficulty is easily available at your local library, bookstore, or music store. There are even websites that sell printable electronic versions of sheet music online. The great thing about that is that some websites will even let you preview and hear samples of songs before you purchase!

5) Learning to play piano is a great way to entertain friends and family!
Imagine being able to play your favorite songs while everyone is singing along. It's a great bonding experience. You could even teach a few simple songs to those who are interested.

6) Learning to play piano is something you will be able to cherish for the rest of your life.
People keep playing the piano well into their 90's. The best thing is, the longer you play, the more you will learn, and the more enjoyment you will get out of it. Give your self this great gift now. Start learning to play the piano today!

7) Learning to play piano makes you a versatile musician.
The piano is an extremely versatile instrument. The piano is the only instrument that allows you to play multiple notes simultaneously with great ease. This means that you can perform really nice renditions of songs from any genre. This also makes the piano an ideal instrument for composing since it basically acts as a miniature orchestra. If you are composing music on the computer, the electronic piano keyboard serves as a perfect interface for entering notes in real-time into your music software.

8) Learning to play piano will allow you to listen to music with greater enjoyment and appreciation.
Since you will learn how songs are put together, your listening ability will become more refined. You will start to hear and notice more distinct details in the music that you listen to. Songs that you have been listening to for years will seem richer as you hear nuances that you have never noticed before. You may also start to enjoy songs from other genres of music that you would normally never listen to.

9) Learning to play piano is physically easy. The piano is much easier to pick up compared to other musical instruments.
Take the violin for example, which takes some serious practice to be able to make even a single pleasing sound by using the bow. Another example would be the guitar. There are so many tough fingering positions that you will need to learn to be able to play even the most basic chords. By learning the piano, anyone can easily play notes and chords in their first lesson.

10) Learn to play piano and join a rich tradition that is over 250 years old.
The piano has heavily influenced every major style of music since its first appearance. Today, pianists still use the piano keyboard to create great music, as heard by such performers like Gavin Degraw, Alicia Keys, and Vanessa Carlton. The piano is also being used behind the scenes as an instrument for composing music for movies, video games, plays, and much more.

There you have it! There are just so many great reasons to start playing the piano today. If you are even slightly convinced, I urge you to go ahead and give it a shot. It will be one of the best things you will ever do for yourself! You won't regret it!

The Music ,Guide To Make Your Kids More Successful

Benefits of Music Education Shown to Include Leadership and Teamwork Skills Besides being a sure way to become the life of the party, learning to play an instrument can make your children smarter, better adjusted, and better equipped to adopt a position of leadership in a diverse world. Some of the benefits of music education include the development of leadership and teamwork skills.

The idea that music education makes children smarter isn't just our opinion. Music has a mathematical precision; the rhythms, pitches, and motifs in musical composition can all be expressed with numbers and equations. Maybe that is why the 1993 Standardized Achievement Test (SAT) showed above-average scores in both mathematical and verbal portions of the test by high school students who studied music. At the time, President Bill Clinton and Education Secretary Richard Riley were calling for enriched arts education for all children.

Being smart is important, but it's also critical that children be well adjusted. Children with music education -- especially those in a school setting with other musicians -- develop the key people-skills that are essential to functioning in society, including teamwork, problem solving, and leadership. They gain from the hard work of music mastery, learning self-discipline and self-worth through accomplishments. Studies demonstrate that the students most likely to be elected to class office, achieve the highest grades, or receive honors for academic achievement are the students who -- you guessed it -- study music.

There is also an impossible to quantify, yet essential quality that music adds to each of our lives. If, as argued by the Oxford Review of Education as far back as 1996, the richness of music is itself enough justification for the teaching of it , then are music's other benefits unimportant? We do not believe so. Music education should and does have measurable benefits. What we know is that music education helps children improve academic skills, develop leadership skills, and gain a sense of accomplishment. We also know that support for music education in public schools is always under financial pressure.

You may have to resort to private or virtual lessons to help your children learn music. Be involved, pay attention, and behave as if your children's music education is as important as math and writing education. Why? Because it is. But if that doesn't convince your son or daughter to study music, perhaps the fact that musicians are the life of the party will! Guitar players and singers and pianists are always in demand, no matter what the venue; whether in church musical groups or jazz combos or contemporary rock groups, with bass players and drummers close behind. With the current decline in support for music and arts education, it is more important than ever for parents to encourage their children to study music.

Mesyuarat di Sek Seni Kuching, Sarawak

Pada 21-24 Julai lalu aku ke Sekolah Seni Kuching, Sarawak untuk menghadiri satu mesyuarat berkaitan peperiksaan .

Sekolah Seni Kuching adalah merupakan salah satu daripada dua sekolah seni di Malaysia yang diwujudkan oleh kerajaan Malaysia bagi memberi saluran kepada pelajar yang mempunyai bakat dan potensi di dalam bidang kesenian untuk mendalami bidang kesenian yang mereka minati.

Semasa kedatangan kau ke sana, rakan-rakan jurulatih dan ketua bidang muzik sibuk mengendalikan satu projek besar Jabatan Pelajaran Sarawak iaitu Konsert Syukor Tuan Yang Terutama Negeri Sarawak.

Konsert tersebut menggabungkan guru-guru dan pelajar-pelajar dari seluruh negeri Sarawak. Konsert ini adalah ala-ala Konsert Kementerian Pelajaran Malaysia yang diadakan pada setiap tahun pada peringkat nasional.

Projek yang julung-julung kalinya diadakan ini menurut En. Reduan Taha, Ketua Bidang Seni Muzik dan selaku konduktor konsert adalah merupakan benchmark atau penanda aras yang akan menentukan sama ada konsert ini akan diteruskan pada tahun-tahun akan datang atau hanya akan diadakan setakat tahun ini sahaja sekiranya persembahan tidak berjaya.

Tapi rasanya berdasarkan pengamatan aku semasa mengikuti sesi latihan yang dijalankan di Dewan Undangan Negeri Sarawak pada hari itu, Konsert tersebut akan mencapai kejayaan seperti yang diharapkan.




Apa-apa pun aku sangat berterima kasih di atas layanan yang cukup sempurna semasa berada di sana terutama kepada En Rojali Yusin jurulataih Seni Muzik.

What Are The Basics Of Buying Electric Guitars?

Just about every kid ever born wants to be a rock star like Man Keedal. They see their favorite stars up there on stage playing the electric guitar to a crowd and want to do the same. Problem is, it's not easy learning to play the electric guitar.

And of course before you learn to play the guitar you need to own a guitar, or at least borrow one. When you're just starting out learning the electric guitar you don't need one like Jimmy Hendrix would play, but you still need to get your hands on an electric guitar that will be adequate for the beginner. And if that's you then there's a few things that you need to know about electric guitars that may help in understanding a little more about them.

First thing to remember about buying your first electric guitar is that you don't need to spend hundreds of thousands to do so. Be happy with a cheap electric guitar while you're learning, and maybe once you hit the big time spend up big. However a cheap electric guitar will do the job for the first few years.

You also need to know exactly what style of music you will be playing on your guitar. Different styles of music require different styles of electric guitar. You need a different guitar to play rock, for example, to the guitar you'd buy if you were playing jazz.

So spend a little time researching the types of electric guitar that should be used by different music styles.

Electric guitar types boil down to 2 basic types, solid body and hollow body.

As the name suggests a solid body guitar has no hollow space inside, and is usually, though not exclusively, made of solid wood. Different types of timber can produce different sounds, so as you get better you may want to research more on the type of timber you need to produce the sound you want, but in the early stages if you're buying a cheap electric guitar don't get too carried away getting the ideal timber, you may find it more expensive than you need to be paying, and it's not essential at the start.

And there's a few unusual terms you'll need to become familiar with if you're buying an electric guitar for the first time. Here's a taste.


Pickups.

The pickup is a magnet with a coil of wire wrapped around it placed right under the strings. This receives the vibrations of the strings and turns these into an electric signal for the amp to use. There are 2 types of pickup. The single coil, which produces a sound that sounds good for playing rock, blues and country. Humbuckers are a pickup with 2 coils next to each other that produces a warmer sound which is great for metal and rock in particular. Some guitars have a combination of single coils and humbuckers, and there is usually at least 2 pickups utilized.


Bridge.

The bridge is where the strings connect to the body of the guitar. You can have a fixed bridge or a Vibrato bridge which allows you to move the bridge to tighten or loosen the strings. The fixed bridge is better for beginners who can graduate to a Vibrato bridge after they've mastered the basics.

Hollow body electric guitars are the second basic style of guitar. These, as the name suggests, have a hollow body although there is also a variation of this which is the semi hollow. As the player plays his guitar the hollow space helps the body resonate which produces a quite distinctive sound. These are good guitars for jazz. These hollow body guitars also utilize pickups, including single coil and humbucker.

That's really just the start when it comes to understanding electric guitars, and for the enthusiast it's a lifetime job learning all there is to know about them. And finding out exactly what it is that you need to play to produce exactly the sound you want to produce. That's part of the fun of playing the guitar, it's a constant learning process, not just about how to play but what to play as well.

However remember, the most important piece of advice. If you're a beginner don't spend up big the first time. Buy yourself a cheap electric guitar first, then learn to play that and take it from there. It's the best way to kick off your rock star career.

The Importance of Dedicated Daily Practice In Learning to Play Music

As a result, practice is essential to becoming skilled at anything, and this is especially true with musical instruments. When you first get your used musical instrument, whether it is a guitar, piano or trombone, you’re going to need to practice on it if you want to play it without people laughing at you.

Practice is not something that can be done occasionally. It is something that has to be done on a regular basis. The world of rock and roll and other popular music genres is littered with men and women who practiced constantly to become the ideal that they could on an instrument.

Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin didn’t just become great on the guitar, he’d to practice constantly. Elton John did not just become great on the piano, he had to practice on a regular basis.

This is what it means to be great in music. It means working to ensure you practice every day, often for several hours a day.

Unless you plan on being in a boy band, your dreams of musical stardom are tied directly to how hard you want to work to make something work and make yourself a rock god.

It isn’t easy to do, but no one stated success was an simple thing to achieve. It is a long process of practicing and heartache. Sometimes it will pay off, other times it will not, but regardless of whether or not you become famous or simply play in a band at banquets, practicing at something regularly means you’ll develop discipline and commitment. This is incredibly important and can help you throughout your life.

Practicing is so important to music that those who don’t practice can never hope to accomplish superstardom. Even lead singers have to practice their voice so they don’t sound like a bad American Idol contestant in front of their fans. Practice makes perfect, and perfection is the only thing that’ll take your band, and yourself, to the next level.

When you choose to take up a musical instrument, or your child begins playing one, the most important part of learning is practice. There’s no point in playing an instrument if you select to only practice once per month. You need to take the time to learn everything you can about the instrument, because only through practice can you become good at it.

Through practice, your self-esteem will rise, you will feel more confident and you’ll be proud of the fact that you decided to work hard to make yourself adept on an instrument. It is a long-term commitment, and for many, the success they feel at the end when they have the ability to play with ease is worth any amount of cash they may make in the future.

How to Improve Piano Sight Reading

To play a piece of music you have never seen before takes a great deal of skill. So how is it, some musicians can do this easily such as session musicians and others such as non professional players of all standards find sight reading so difficult.

Don't confuse learning to play a piece with sight-reading a piece

Many players confuse learning and playing a piece of music with sight-reading. You also have to learn how to sight read and this is completely different from learning to play a piece of music. To sight read successfully does not necessarily mean playing the piece note for note but to get through the piece from start to finish, in time, that means no slow downs or speed ups, perfect time.

Stopping and starting

As a professional musician you do not have the luxury of stopping and starting as many non professional players do, and there are a great deal of very good amateur players that keep stopping and starting because they don't have the discipline of a good sight reader.

Learn to sight-read

The best way to learn how to sight read is to find a piece of music you have never seen before, start playing at the beginning and don't stop, until to reach the end. Yes, there will be mistakes and that is part of the learning process. You are learning to sight-read. It is a discipline that professionals are forced to use and unfortunately, amateurs just don't get. They have to play everything perfectly, which means lots of practice on just one piece of music.

The more music you sight read the better you will understand music phrases you have never seen before, the more music phrases you play the better you will get, the better you get the easier the sight reading becomes. It's a vicious circle, it's a great discipline and it will force you to use all of your music knowledge.

Akhirnya pelajar-pelajar SSJB telah berjaya membuktikan kehebatan mereka kepada para penonton Teater Kasih Teja Di Muara Muar yang berlangsung di Dataran Bandaraya JB pada 12 dan 13 Julai lalu.

Ramai yang memuji mutu persembahan teater muzikal yang ditunjukkan, malah persembahan yang berlangsung selama kira-kira 2 jam setengah itu langsung tidak membosankan kerana penuh dengan adegan yang digarap dengan begitu baik pada setiap plot penceritaan.

Itulah kehebatan Dean Manas pengarah Teater ini dibantu oleh semua produksi iaitu koreografer, make up artist, Sound engineer, lighting , Music director dan stage manager. Aku sebagai jurulatih muzik kepada pemuzik SSJB pun turut rasa tak puas dan rasa nak perform lagi. 2 jam setengah tu tak terasa lama pun.

Persembahan teater tersebut telah berjaya memukau para penonton yang dianggarkan seramai 1500 orang penonton dalam masa 2 hari tersebut.

Kehadiran Timbalan Menteri Pelajaran Malaysia

Pada show hari Ahad petang (matinee) penonton penuh, aku tak perasan bila tiba-tiba semasa break 15 minit, Juruacara mengumumkan kedatangan Timbalan Menteri Pelajaran Y.B Ir Dr. Wee Ka Siong. Beliau terus datang kepada aku mengucapkan tahniah di atas persembahan yang hebat ditunjukkan oleh pelajar SSJB.





























Beliau seterusnya berjanji untuk datang ke sekolah untuk melihat perkembangan sekolah. Aku pun sempat bertanya kepada beliau tentang lokasi sekolah seni. Beliau memberitahu tempatnya di Bandar Putra Kulai. Tapi itu kata beliau adalah ura-ura sahaja.

Beliau turut berbangga dengan persembahan teater ini dan besar kemungkinan beliau akan membuat MOU dengan KeKKWa untuk mengadakan persembahan teater ini di Istana Budaya KualaLumpur. Tunggu aje lah.

Sesungguhnya penglibatan kami warga seni SSJB ini telah banyak memberikan pengalaman dan pengajaran yang sangat berharga dalam pelbagai aspek.

Terima kasih kepada pihak penganjur khususnya pihak Alpha Entertaiment kerana memberikan sepenuh kepercayaan kepada kami.

Thank you very much.!!!

Jumpa lagi ...

Surat Kelulusan Menjadi Jurulatih Seni yang sangat menggembirakan hati.

Hari ini, semua jurulatih senior mendapat surat kelulusan perpindahan sementara sebagai jurulatih gred DG41 berkuatkuasa 01/06/2008 hingga 01/06/2010.

Agaknya diorang tak tau kot aku melatih student sekolah seni daripada tahun lepas.
Tahun lepas cuma 4 orang jurulatih ini ajelah yang bertungkus lumus, bekerja keras, membentuk, membina pelajar-pelajar di sini. Woooo bukan senang woooo. Dengan serba serbi kekurangan. fasiliti dan peralatan yang kurang. Kami tabah menghadapi cabaran ini demi agama bangsa dan negara yang tercinta.

Kiranya tahun lepas tu kitaorang bukan jurulatih cuma di arahkan pindah sekolah aje, Kalau aku tau JPJS punya auta ni.

Baik aku tak masuk sekolah seni tahun lepas. Masuk tahun ini aje macam jurulatih yang baru.

Dah la tak ada backdated kita cuma guru akademik biasa aje, walaupun kerja sampai malam kadang-kadang tidor di sekolah pun ada.

Kitorang yang set up , bentuk pelajar sekolah seni ini kepada tahap yang ada sekarang.

Siapa yang besalah dalam hal ini. Masing-masing mestilah tak nak mengaku salah.
Mestilah pihak KPM ada jawapan yang konkrit yang kukuh beserta dengan fakta dan pekeliling la. Diorang mesti menang punya. Kau siapa nak tanya-tanya.

Mestilah diorang tak bersalah.

Aku rasa semua orang tak salah. Nak tau sebabnya. Sebabnya ialah harga minyak dunia naik. Jadi bila harga minyak naik maka diorang buat kerja ni pun pening kepala.

Hmmm.. Malas la aku nak tau kenapa perkara ni berlaku kepada kitaorang yang pioneer di sekolah seni yang tercinta ini.

Itulah antara beberapa perkara Auta yang banyak di gula-gulakan kepada kami.

Apa-apa pun kepada mereka yang teringin menjadi jurulatih di Sekolah Seni no problem dah.
Kalau berminat nak jadi jurulatih di sekolah seni. Mohon lah. Kami alu-alukan kedatangan anda di sini.

Cuma kalau nak mintak jadi jurulatih tu..... aku syorkan korang nyanyi lagu Janji Manismu oleh Aishah. ok. Sebab lagu tu sedaplah... ala nyanyi aje lah.. Lagu tu pernah menang Anugerah Juara Lagu TV3 tahun 1990.



Kalau lagu tu lagu sedih korang tak suka, Aku ada cadangan lagu lain.
Lagu Wann. Apa Guna Berjanji. pun ok jugak.

Guitar Speed Trainer Software


Guitar Speed Trainer 2.3.8.4

The Guitar Speed Trainer is a home study course software designed to help you develop superior speed and technique.The first thing you need is correct information. If you want to make significant progress then you simply must know all the important facts about guitar speed.

That's why the very first thing you will do with the Guitar Speed Trainer will be learning the fundamentals:

  • How speed picking really works.
  • The four picking strategies.
  • The three types of motion.
  • How to measure your speed.
  • Advantages and disadvantages of different approaches.
  • The "PP" secret for developing jaw-dropping speed.
  • The five worst training mistakes, and how to avoid them.
  • How to do the right exercise at the right time.
  • The "LRB" secret of super-coordination at high speed.Then, effective training

Once you have the knowledge, the Guitar Speed Trainer then helps you translate it into action and get the best possible results in the shortest time.


For example, GST helps you measure your Speed Profile and use that information to fine-tune your exercises.

To get maximum benefit from every single minute of practice, GST uses the Ideal Speed Curve. This is a unique training strategy that ensure you always train "in the zone".

Simple but effective drills focus on different types of Fingering and Phrasing (e.g scales, patterns, chromatic, etc.)

All important Picking Techniques (e.g. single and double, alternate and semi-alternate, etc.) are exercised through short specialized exercises.

5 Common Problems with Music Lessons (and how to avoid them!)

Over the past 9 years we have talked with hundreds of students and families about their experiences with music programs and what they felt about these experiences. We found common complaints recurring over and over and have made it our mission to create a school offering whatever has been missing from these programs. This is a list of these common problems and what steps as a school we take to help students and families to avoid them.

Common problem #1:
Students are instructed in a very strict manner with a heavy emphasis on note reading and theory. Students do exercises and theory homework but are not allowed to play songs. Students are only allowed to play a song when everything seems perfect and wait months or years to be allowed to play and enjoy their instrument. These students and parents usually feel defeated and begin to look at music as a chore with little payoff and lacking any real joy.

Solution: At our school we allow students to play their instruments and correct their technique as they go. Using the Suzuki method allows students to memorize songs by ear and focus their attention on proper posture and technique. Students get into the habit of playing correctly and sounding good on their instrument every day while they also get to experience the joy of playing songs. When strong habits of play are formed we then begin to take a look at note reading and theory.


Common problem #2:

Students are allowed to play many songs daily with a focus on fun but without focusing on technique. Although in the beginning students will enjoy this approach it will not take long before students realize that they are not really progressing. In fact many students taught in this way learn bad habits that make it difficult or impossible to play more difficult pieces. When these students come to our program we have to work very hard at correcting these bad habits which may have been going on for years. Unfortunately these parents and students have wasted a lot of time and money which could have been prevented.


Solution: In addition to hiring highly skilled University trained teachers we offer instruction targeted towards building technique every day from the ground up. In lessons students receive practice charts daily that begin with the most basic exercises. As they go through their charts the songs and scales become progressively more challenging in a subtle way. Every level of the practice chart works to support the next level and creates positive momentum over the course of the practice. This system works because when students reach their most challenging piece they can play it comfortably because their technique has been supported throughout the practice.

Common problem #3:
"My child won't practice and we fight over it!" Unfortunately many students do not want to practice and it causes tension between parents and students. Many of these parents know that music education is important but keep wondering, "is it worth all the trouble?"

Solution: As a music program we offer resources to help parents and teachers motivate students to practice. When students enroll we offer a free booklet "9 ways create successful practices at home". Younger students receive stickers every time they complete a part of their practice chart which makes the practices more fun. We also provide two free recitals twice per year to give students a goal to work towards. Finally, teachers discuss strategies in lessons to make students and parents create the habit of practicing at home.

Common problem #4:
Students can play their instrument well, but they cannot read music. This is commonly seen in students who are kept in the Suzuki method for too long. Students who cannot read music will not be able to perform music in groups or an orchestra and will be shut off to a whole world of music. Learning new music beyond the intermediate stages will also be extremely difficult and will take a long time. When music becomes more complicated you simply cannot play it all by ear and you need help from the written page.

Solution: Teach students how to read music at the right time and in the right way. In our program our first goal is to have students in the strong habit of playing correctly and sounding good on their instrument every day. When this is achieved our teachers then gradually begin to teach note reading, music theory and implement some easy sight reading into student's practice charts. As students become confident and skilled in their reading a whole world of music is opened up to them. Not only do these students become excellent sight readers but we allow students to explore new music as part of their practice such as Celtic, Jazz, Fiddle, Ragtime, Movie Soundtracks and more. Now that these students are in the habit of sounding good, they can easily maintain that habit even when they are sight reading.

Common problem #5:
Many students and parents have told us stories about teachers they have had that have turned them off to music. The instruction has been very rigid, strict and negative. These students were pushed to excel at music through fear motivation. Unfortunately many of these students quit, never to return to music, or they continue onward struggling with a loss of self confidence.

Solution: Lessons in our program are focused deeply on sharing a love for music. We believe students achieve their highest potential when they are positively reinforced and we work on building a student's confidence. We realize that some students will seek professional careers in music and others will not. We strive for our students to achieve excellence in their music and we encourage them to enjoy playing for a lifetime!
