WHY WE TEACH MUSIC
… Not because we expect you to major in music,
or because we expect you to sing all your life,
But so that you will be more human. We’d like to teach you to recognize beauty, develop sensitivities and and become a well-rounded person. Music is universal, connects us, and lets us communicate beyond words.
A Foundation for Life
It is well established that music enriches and enhances the education process. Besides learning the importance of endurance, patience, and discipline, students involved in music and fine arts find more purpose in many areas of study and meaning in the world around them.
These benefits are especially true for the study of stringed instruments. Playing the violin or other violin-family instrument is a rewarding challenge that takes the student on a journey that enriches the whole person. Pursuing music embraces universal principles of rhythm, pitch, harmony, and tonal beauty. Each of these principles has application in both stringed-instrument playing and in the real world.
Although the musical application of these principles is obvious, the real-world application perhaps is not. Here are some examples of real-world applications of these musical principles: Rhythm—being in the right place at the right time doing the right thing, Pitch—learning to discern what’s true to oneself, Harmony—getting along with others by aligning one’s life towards shared connection and compassion, and Form— recognizing where we’ve come from so we can see where we are now.
By participating in string music education, students are exposed to these guiding principles and learn to apply them in their playing and their daily lives. Students who learn these principles contribute positively to the world around them, regardless of whether they pursue a career in music or not.
We strive to make our private lessons fun and supportive:
At LA Music Academy, students experience the wonder of music. We strongly recommend to take part in solo recital opportunities to enjoy playing music in front of audiences and to support their peers.Take part in our other opportunities as well.
