Piano and Violin Classes
Piano & Violin Classes for Scholars
Students attend a weekly class of 40 minutes throughout the school term. There are 4-6 students per class and students are grouped according to their availability and level. We start from the age of 5, before 5 they are prepped for learning an instrument in our Stassi Kids Music program. We also have a dynamic group for high school students.
A combination of sight reading and playing by ear are taught. We keep classes fun but also educational. We show each student how to work independently thus making it easier to practice at home. Our aim is to kindle the love of music making it something your child will continue with into adulthood.
Piano & Violin Classes for Adults
Adult students attend a weekly class of 60 minutes throughout the school term. There are 4-6 students per class.
Adult piano or violin classes for beginners – Learning to play the piano or violin as an adult can be intimidating. Many people limit themselves because they think they are too old or that it’s too late to start something new. The good news is that it is never too late to start. We have a non-intimidating approach to teach piano and violin using a method that is easy and attainable.
Worship piano classes for beginners to intermediate – This is a specific class for piano students wanting to learn how to play in a worship band. Classes teach on scales, notes, chords as well as incorporating style and tone into the worship setting. Lessons will empower any beginner to intermediate player to sound great while contributing to any worship team.
We have a weekly theory class of 40min. In this class we teach the elements of music which is the writing of key- and time signatures and rhythmic- and melodic notation. Selected students of Stassenheim Music can join for free. Students not enrolled with us can join for a fee per term.
