The mission of Music Instruction Studio (MIS) is to provide high quality music education through one-on-one & group instruction, which is challenging, rewarding and fun.
Our instructors support the MIS mission through a shared philosophy that instruction is not about the instructors or their accomplishments, but rather, it is about the student.
To keep the focus on the student, we specialize in instruction only, whereas many facilities that offer music lessons also emphasize instrument sales and rentals.
We take a holistic approach to teaching, where instructor-student compatibility is facilitated through student goals and style of music. We use a curriculum-based instruction approach, with short-term and long-term goals designated to meet the student’s primary music objectives. Furthermore, we encourage students to be pro-active in their learning and to engage learned material through practice and student performances.
More than Just Music Lessons
MIS instructors are accomplished musicians and have a strong passion for and extensive experience in teaching. Please refer to the Instructor Bios section on our website for specific information about our individual instructors.
For the Young & Not-so-Young as well as the Skilled and Not-so-Skilled:
In other words, we cater to all ages (from age 6 up) and all skill levels. Our primary objective is to make music education challenging, fun and rewarding, regardless of age or skill level.
One-On-One v. Group Lessons:
Most students prefer and benefit most from individual lessons, however, we also offer group lessons.
We offer piano recitals, and other student performance events throughout the year. These events are voluntary, foster student confidence and also provide opportunities for students to demonstrate their progress to family anfriends.
We have an extensive music library and unique equipment to supplement MIS student learning.
Seminars and Workshops:
Throughout the year, we offer many free seminars and workshops for MIS students.
Post-Secondary Music Preparation:
Students desiring to pursue a degree in music can prepare at MIS through intense study of theory, sight-reading, ear training and more.
