Deluxe Lesson Format:
20/20/20 Rotating Lesson
In rotating lessons, up to three students alternate among centers. Students get more time learning the fundamentals of theory and music reading while building their playing skills gradually.
20 minutes with the teacher in individual or small group instruction (dependent on matched levels/ages)
20 minutes playing piano with MIDI technology with iPad or computer
20 minutes customized theory lab time via computer, video, iPad, or pencil. ☺
In addition to customized playing and lab assignments, the 20-20-20 lesson may also include duets and trios, and group music theory games (Music Mind Games) for reinforcing lesson material. Each student will have his or her own piano, keyboard, or digital piano to play at each center. This lesson format gives students 100% more instructional time than the average piano lesson!
Recommended for ages 7 and up, perfect for friends or siblings, and for students who have limited practice time available in-between lessons. This is a great option for families who have other commitments, and otherwise busy schedules.

Technology/Theory Lab Time
The technology in the studio is intended to provide students with additional opportunities to build and reinforce various musicianship skills. Encore Studio provides an individualized program of music theory fundamentals, ear training, music appreciation/music history, and rhythm drills. This is based on the National Federation of Music Clubs’ levels of music theory. Also, students may play their assigned music with MIDI disks and a digital piano for accurate practice. Notation software is available for those who participate in composition activities. During this time, students may also be asked to work on theory worksheets or books, since they have the most success doing this in a monitored setting. Students will be scheduled to use the Lab tools before or after their lesson. Students are expected to respect all studio property - to use equipment carefully, and only for instructional music purposes. Any damage or theft becomes your responsibility. If students are creating problems, the studio reserves the right to discontinue their equipment use, or in extreme cases to dismiss them from the studio.
