Music education is vital to self-expression and wiring the brain for spatial & pattern recognition.
Imaginit music custom-designs education curriculum to respond to individual’s desires, abilities and goals. With an emphasis on discovery and fun, studies include improvisation, composition and songwriting in addition to standard reading and theory.
If you can find your musical bliss you will be drawn to the instrument and practice will be a natural part of your day. From Bach to the Blues, Bob Marley to Gypsy songs, diversity of interest is encouraged.
Live-off-the-floor and multi-track recording is used in tandem with lessons to facilitate awakening the ‘teacher within’ as well as for mentoring young artists interested in audio production.
Studies are offered in piano; saxophone; voice; theory; composition; songwriting; contemporary improvisation; beginner guitar; audio production or a custom-designed combination of any.
Twice annual student concerts take place in December and June including annual CD release of original student songs, stories and compositions featuring cover artwork by a youth student.
