Lessons in Piano, Guitar and Drums are taught, specializing in improvisation, jazz, and contemporary music. Each week, students enter their lessons with no expectations except to have fun playing their instrument. The goal is to give new students the gift of a life full of music. Fun and inspiring lessons will develop students’ relationship with music into a strong and healthy one. Learning musical skills and concepts is a result of the focused repertoire development. By focusing primarily on repertoire, students are able to get together and play with friends—do the things musicians do—sooner than if they were stuck in the practice room doing exercises.
“My goal is to create lifelong musicians out of these kids who come to me—and fun is the number one way to do it” — Tim Lumnah

Once a better understanding is established, we can move forward with a typical lesson strategy, which involves a heavy focus on repertoire so the student can start playing with friends as soon as possible. For example, at the beginning of every lesson, I ask the student what questions they have from our last lesson, how they feel about things we’ve talked about in general, and briefly summarize the topics that we’ve worked on.
