What makes Music as Language different from other music studios?
Our teachers have worked in other studios from university settings to pre-school music classes. We have one idea in common. We believe that music lessons can be taught differently than how we learned. We feel that the strict music classes, based solely on the goal of professional performance, are antiquated and rigid. We want to help students learn to love music and how to incorporate what they are learning into their studies, their goals, and their lives. With this teaching style, many of our students actually do go on to pursue music professionally, while others are in medical school, teaching, discovering academia, and working with tech-companies to create the newest operating systems. All of our students discover how to reach their top potential in whatever they decide to do.

Does Music as Language participate in state exams?
Absolutely! Our students have received top honors in the ABRSM Exams, as well as MTAC’s Certificate of Merit program. We also work with top bay area and California state competitions and are always looking for more development options for our students.
Does my student need to commit to a certain amount of practice per week?
As with any skill, the more time you put into your music, the faster you will learn. There are no mandatory practice schedules; each student chooses their own pace from Lento to Presto. It’s all up to you!
What instrument(s) will we need at home?
This is decided between the student, parent, and teacher. Usually an introductory instrument is a good way to start!
Do you teach beginning students?
Of course! We understand that everyone has to begin somewhere. In fact, we love beginners, because we can help them incorporate our unique learning style from the foundation upward. We specialize in piano lessons and voice lessons for beginners.
