Capistrano Beach Piano Lessons That Truly Rock
For many of us, music lessons were more drudgery than fun, and that’s a shame because playing an instrument has not only been shown to reduce stress and anxiety, learning how to play also has been shown to help students improve their academic performance in general. However, if you are searching for fun and engaging Capistrano Beach piano lessons, we have a solution that’s just around the corner.
Los Rios Rock School, which is located just minutes from Capistrano Beach in downtown San Juan Capistrano, offers piano lessons as well as plenty of opportunities for showing off those new piano skills. Here’s a quick look at our program.
Unlike many local music schools or private instructors, we provide a full 60-minute private lesson each week as part of your monthly tuition. Many schools provide only 30 or 45 minutes of instruction, but we feel that a full hour is more beneficial to students. Our lessons are song-based and performance-based, which means that we begin teaching using music that your child or teen truly enjoys. Rather than starting off with nursery songs or scales, we get right to the good stuff. We find that our students are more motivated to practice when they quickly are able to play a favorite song.
Our expert instructors also are able to teach multiple instruments, so if your child is interested in something beyond Capistrano Beach piano lessons, we can split their lesson into two sections. For instance, you might spend half of your lesson practicing piano and keyboarding skills and the rest learning how to play clarinet, saxophone, drums or guitar. Many of our students also enjoy vocal instructions, so you might opt for a mix of piano and vocals.
Of course, Capistrano Beach piano lessons wouldn’t be very much fun if you don’t get to enjoy some live performances. As part of your monthly tuition, your child or teen can participate in our Live Program, which includes several concerts per year at top local venues such as the Coach House and the House of Blues, as well as music festivals and other events.
Some of our shows feature a wide mix of musical genres and styles, while others feature a special theme, such as a Halloween-themed or Christmas-themed concert. Our more advanced students are invited to audition for our Classic Album Series, which are concerts that include all of the tracks from a famed classic album, such as The Beatles’ Abbey Road, The Beach Boys’ Pet Sounds or perhaps Michael Jackson’s Thriller.
For the Live Program, we divide up the students into special groups, typically based upon ability. The students create set lists and then practice during weekly jam sessions. This is not only a great opportunity for students to improve their musical ability; it provides a great way for kids for form new friendships, as well. Many of our students hang out at the rock school before and after jam sessions and lessons just to enjoy extra time with friends, at we aim to provide a positive social experience for all of our kids and teens, as well as high-quality music instruction.
Summer Camps & Special Classes
Beyond the lessons and live performances, we offer a few extra classes as well as exciting summer camps. Our camps include beginner & intermediate camps, as well as a special camp for our more advanced students.
Our facility includes two professional recording studios, so if you budding musician wants to learn how to write, record and produce their own original music, they might enjoy some of our production and songwriting classes and workshops. We have produced original music for many of our students, as well as providing them opportunities to showcase these original songs at our rock shows.
For our advanced high school students, our accredited music school also offers an AP Music Theory class led by an instructor with a doctoral degree in Music Composition. During this class, students will learn all the need to pass the rigorous AP Music Theory exam.
