Why Confident Voice Studio Music For Ukulele Lessons?
At Confident Voice Studio, you are not simply signing up for private ukulele lessons. Rather, you are joining a community that are all on the same mission together: to inspire a growing community of passionate and excellent musicians! We create this community atmosphere based on some core principals:
• Everyone has value and should be accepted, included, encouraged and affirmed through their interactions at Confident Voice Studio.
• We must challenge each other to continually grow, develop and improve through focus, hard work and practice, AND
• We must be honest and kind to each other at all times.
This idea of community is central to who we are as a company and how we interact with our customers. It is also key to helping us serve our students in a way that builds confidence, social skills, coordination, work ethic, personal responsibility and, of course, a love for and ability to play music.
Our studio is stocked with everything our students need to create a great learning environment. From inspiring posters on the walls, to music stands, whiteboards, plus a setup for playing along with the music being learned, we spare no expense to make sure we have a comfortable and safe space for lessons to take place. We maintain an open door policy with parents who want to sit in on a lesson from time to time.
How Do Ukulele Lessons Work At Confident Voice Studio?
Once scheduling is out of the way, it’s time to rock. You will meet with your teacher once a week at the same time each week for 30, 45, or 60 minutes, depending on which you select. Our favorite lesson length for most students is 30 minutes because it allows time for building a relationship, warming up, reviewing what was learned in the previous lesson and providing new instruction. All 30 minute lessons include our Music Lab before or after your schedule lesson time. Thirty minutes is great for younger students and an hour-long lesson is great for more advanced students who are interested in accelerating their progress. We offer several music lesson options ranging from “A La Carte” to our monthly studio membership. These various packages offer options to our customers to match their needs related to schedule flexibility, pricing and commitment.
Do I Need A Ukulele Before I Sign Up For Lessons?
Yes and no. We know that buying an instrument is a big investment. If you are testing out your child’s interest and aren’t ready to take the plunge, we totally understand and will work with you! On the other hand, having a ukulele at home is a big advantage when it comes to students making progress between lessons. Plus, buying an instrument = more noise, more noise = more fun, more fun = more practice and more practice = more progress.
Therefore, according to the transitive property, buying an instrument = more progress. The good news is that for less than the price of 1 month of lessons, you can get a quality starter ukulele. We recommend a soprano ukulele to start and prefer the Kala brand. You can find one at http://Smile.Amazon.com (select Portland Musical Theater Company as your charity of choice and Amazon will donate to Deanna’s theater company with every purchase you make) or locally Portland Music Company.
