Role of the Student
We enjoy teaching all levels, using individualized practice strategies and resources to help each student achieve their personal best; however, learning an instrument requires a high level of self-discipline and commitment. Students are expected to practice daily (5 days/week), but with fun resources and studio challenges, students enjoy practicing and it's not a struggle at home!
The videos below highlight students in each stage of the piano-learning journey (Beginner, Elementary, Intermediate and Advanced). Please read below for information regarding what each level entails, and how much practice is generally required to achieve each level of musicianship. Please enjoy watching the videos below, which feature our talented students at Creative Expressions Music Academy.
Gavin is a beginner student (0-1 years of lessons), practicing 15-20 minutes/day. At 5 years old, we supplement his music with fun games and resources to help him establish a foundation in music and good practice habits. Here he is, performing "Graduation Party" and "Eensie Weensie Spider".
Gavin is an elementary student (2-3 years of lessons), and he practices 30 minutes/day! He is entering the Preparatory Royal Conservatory repertoire. We regularly work on improvising, reading music, rote-playing, and playing by ear in his lessons. Here he is, performing "The Entertainer".
Daisy is an intermediate student (4-6 years of lessons), and she practices about 45 minutes/day! She has completed the Level 5 Practical and Theory Exams through the Royal Conservatory of Music with First Class Honours with Distinction. Here she is, performing "Black Cat Scherzo".
