Don't be fooled; music lessons are for all ages! It is never too late to begin or restart music lessons. Tapes Fine Arts, Inc. has many adult students in piano and voice.
Ms. Jean and Ms. Sherry have over 60 years of combined experience. They incorporate fun teaching methods unique to each student's learning style and music preference, making sure the student enjoys what he/she is learning. If a child wants to learn music to sing at church, then that is the music they will teach him/her. If a child wants to learn to play pop music, they will integrate pop songs into his/her lessons. Each student learns different genres and the techniques that go with them in order to be a well-rounded musician. Each student has his/her own goal for lessons, and Ms. Jean and Ms. Sherry's goal is to help them reach it and have fun along the way!
Who Should I Take Lessons From?
More experienced/older pianists and vocalists take lessons from Ms. Jean. She helps prepare students for college auditions and high school competitions. Ms. Jean also accepts beginning violinists. Ms. Sherry takes beginning pianists, and vocalists ranging from beginner to intermediate-level singers who will graduate to Ms. Jean's studio once they reach high school.
