What's the problem with traditional music lessons?
Kids love music! So why is it that they start to dread taking music lessons? Why is it that parents need to argue with their kids to get them to practice? Sadly, this often results from the way music lessons have been set up. Traditionally, lessons have been structured in a way that put pressure on students to struggle through learning new music on their own at home.
At Oxford Music Academy, our mission is to put creativity and exploration into learning music. Through our programs, students experience a comprehensive approach incorporating composition, improvisation, ensembles, music theory and ear-training games. The variety of instruction makes the learning process fun and produces self-motivated students who are eager to practice and return to lessons every week.
