GROUP LESSONS

Buddy Lessons If your child has a friend (similar age), why not take lessons together? Buddy lessons provide extra motivation, teamwork and accountability throughout the learning process. There's something so rewarding about watching students learn and grow together. Not only are friendships created, performance anxiety is reduced because they are constantly making music with others.  Student Maximum

EARLY CHILDHOOD

Joyful Music is a program designed just for the little ones (upon director approval, some 3 1/2 year olds may be accepted into this program). Through creative activities, your child will use the piano keyboard to develop basic music skills and learn familiar tunes. Classes will include piano geography, note reading, rhythm games, dynamics, percussion instruments, guided listening & singing. 


ENRICHMENT

This unique lesson structure combines a private lesson with an additional 15 minutes of enrichment. During this time we have fun and creative ways to reinforce theory and musicianship. Students who take part in this program build a stronger music foundation resulting in a more rewarding and lasting experience. These extra 15 minutes can make all the difference for a beginner student’s foundation.


AUDITION PREP

Do you have an upcoming audition for a school play, local theater, Broadway, or for a prestigious performing arts program like NYSSMA? Rivertown Music Studio can help you prep for your winning audition package by guiding you through song choices, expression and presentation.

You’ll learn to act your song, work with an accompanist and feel confident and prepped with a mock audition. If possible, schedule your prep classes 3 months prior to your audition date. We can help explain the audition process and what is needed to be audition ready.
