Our 9 year old daughter has taken piano lessons from KMS since she was 5 years old. Her teacher is exceptional by challenging her skill level, offering plenty of coaching and encouragement, and expertly prepares her for every aspect of recitals and festivals.
I am an adult student at Knox Music Studios. My teacher could not be more perfect for my needs. She manages to balance just the right amount of high-bar-setting with patience to make me feel both encouraged and energized to practice so that I can reach my personal goal of re-learning the piano.
My children have been taking guitar, piano, and voice lessons from Knox Music Studios since 2009. Their knowledge of music theory and ability to play their instruments has continued to develop by leaps and bounds. Thank you, KMS, for instilling a love of music in my children!
What we do is find a convenient weekly time for you to come to lessons, then we'll plan on seeing you at that same day and time every week. Tuition is always the same and it's managed with monthly EFTs (electronic funds transaction). There are no long term contracts either, so if you need to withdrawal for any reason, all you need to do is complete a withdrawal form and a 30 days' notice. Other than that, we prefer a initial two-month commitment.
Most importantly, if you choose us for music instruction, and then practice consistently, you'll learn and grow!
It's really best to practice at least 5 days days a week for 20-30 minutes at a time. We usually have our younger students practice by repetition (i.e. do this exercise 5 times a day). For our teenage and adult students, the more you practice, the quicker you will grow! The staff at KMS can testify about practicing, that's for sure… We all still practice every day!
We think having an acoustic piano is generally best for lessons. Here's a comparison checklist between an acoustic piano and a keyboard (sometimes called "digital pianos"):
Here's a comparison list between the two:
