These are fun yet intensive sessions where students flow through the 4 RMP Music Studios and work on something new in each one. In studio 1 they can choose from piano, ukulele, guitar, bass or signing. Studio 2 is dedicated to drums and percussion. Studio 3 has keyboard, audio recording, ukulele, bass and guitar. Studio 4 is our Songwriting Lounge where students will learn a systematic approach to writing original songs. Ultimately, students are encouraged to learn at least 3 instruments, while exercising the the rhythmic and creative aspects of their minds. The movement through the studio helps keep them engaged with learning and maximizes their exposure to the world of music.
Instruments to choose from:
We encourage students to take these private lessons as an opportunity to receive one on one instruction. If they would like to bring a friend, or share a lesson with a sibling, please clear it with the director in advance.
For families that want to all learn together, please see our Family Music Class.
After 4-8 private lessons students are welcome to audition for a RIOS band. These 4-5 person bands practice for 1.5 hours every week, receive 1 private lesson a week, and perform each month in the community. With the guidance of 2 music teachers, they receive advanced instruction on all the band instruments within their practice session. They also hone their live performance skills, and have fun with their friends! There are 3 levels in the RIOS band program. Beginning, Intermediate and Advanced. Please talk with an instructor about an audition for your student.
