Treble Makers currently offers private and semi private piano instruction for children who are 3-17 years of age. Our teachers are trained to understand the attention span of these wonderful children and structure their lessons according to the capabilities of each student. We want our students to develop not only talent, but a real love of music. We use a vast assortment of teaching techniques and materials to ensure students are never bored. While at home practice will certainly speed their musical development, it is not required for our preschool students. Our goal is to first and foremost help them discover and enjoy their musical talents.
We offer a variety of unique classes tailored to fit each individual child:
This class is designed specifically for our youngest musicians. Here they will begin to learn the very basics of music and beginning piano in a fun classroom setting. There is a limit of 6 students per teacher in this 30 minute class.
This class is the basis of our program. During the 30 minute session, students will learn all about their instrument, and begin playing piano from the very first lesson. Our students enjoy familiar childhood songs and use a variety of traditional and non-traditional methods to help develop their love for music and prepare them for more structured lessons in years to come. Our students are carefully evaluated and placed with a partner who is developmentally their equal. This ensures a fun yet productive learning enviorment for all. Evaluations are routinely performed (without the students knowledge) in order to keep students advancing at their own pace.
This class is designed for students who have completed Treble Makers I, and are ready for a more advanced, structured approach in their continuing piano and music education. Home practice is required at this level. Lessons may be private or semi-private, and last approximately 40 minutes.
This scholarship fund has been established in loving memory of Gordon David Jackson, Sr. He is the father of our company's owner, Ms. Tracey Messick. Mr. Jackson passed away in September of 2009 after a hard fought battle with pancreatic cancer.
Daddy had a love for life. He was kind-hearted and generous to those around him. One of his greatest joys was his grandchildren...another was music. Dad often shared his desire to learn to play an instrument, and how he regretted missing the opportunity. Whenever he had a chance to attend a live performance, he made it a point to speak to the musicians and praise their efforts. We proudly carry on this tradition of honoring upcoming musicians by offering scholarship funds to students who show promise and have a financial need.
