Music Box is an « à la carte » program offering extra or trial music lessons of 1 hr or 45 min at home. Our Music Box program is designed for the following needs:
–Students wanting to try music lessons for the first time. It is sometimes hard to commit to a year long of musical training without knowing what it implies in terms of commitment and practice time. This program lets you experiment to see if you are ready for a year of music lessons.
-Students wanting extra lessons. The Conservatory’s school year runs for 30 weeks, mid September to mid June. The Music Box is a great way to add lessons before or after the school year.
-To give someone a great gift. Perfect for Christmas, Hanukkah, birthdays, anniversaries, Valentines’ Day, mom, dad, kids, employees, anyone! It is very easy to order. Just tell us how many lessons you want to give and we will send you a beautiful gift certificate in the mail.
-Students preparing for exams. Taking an exam process is a big process for students to take on. It requires a real commitment from students, parents and teachers. As the exam time approaches, some students will feel they need a little extra help before the big day. The Music Box lets you add 1 or more lessons to your normal schedule of lessons.
-Students wanting lessons over the vacations. Of course, students want (and need) a break. But while it might be a good idea to take a week or two off over the summer, it is not good to take the whole summer off. By the end of the school year, the student has learned new playing techniques and many other skills. None of these have become part of their muscle memory yet, and breaking for months will take away from what they worked so hard on and have to relearn these skills again. Taking a few lessons over the summer vacation helps to keep the muscle memory and ensure the continuation of their progress. It also motivates students to practice over the summer months.
