Students may begin and continue in our piano program as early as age three through adulthood. All levels are taught in traditional methods in private lessons.
Beginning in Summer 2013, we will add a Preschool Piano curriculum for 3-year-olds and young 4s that targets pre-readers with an engaging color-based system to teach note reading, basic music theory and piano technique. (This curriculum has also tested well with children with special needs who might have limited vocal communication.)
Private instruction is offered for students of all ages.
The Suzuki and Traditional methods are taught to the very young. Parents are encouraged to attend lessons of students younger than third grade. It has been demonstrated that students progress at a faster rate when they have a practice partner at home. Upon request after a student has master primer and level one skills he or she may be introduced to fiddle. Instruction in the areas of cello and viola begin at the age of eight.
Programs for Students from 6 Years Old through Adult
The guitar program is offered to all levels. The recommended age to begin guitar instruction is six. Any students younger than six will have an interview with instructor before acceptance into the guitar program. The guitar program encompasses all styles of music from classical, sacred, jazz, blues, country, and rock. Instruction is offered on either acoustic or electric guitars privately or in groups. Bass guitar students generally begin at the age of ten. During the year folk, classical, and rock ensembles are often formed.
The students are taught both proper singing technique and a variety of song styles. Students learn correct breathing technique, diction, vowel production, tone quality and how to expressively perform a song. It is important for the student to have a well-rounded repertoire of songs. Students will learn sacred, fold, Broadway, pop, opera, and art songs.
BRASS (Trumpet, French Horn, Trombone, and Tuba) WOODWINDS (Clarinet, Saxophone, and Flute), and PERCUSSION (Snare Drums and Drum Set)
The instrumental program is a vital integrated component at The Arts at Good Samaritan. All instructional materials used are standard literature publications including all styles of music. We work closely with the area Band Directors to assist in preparing students for band requirements. Solos are selected from the Florida Bandmasters Association required listings. Our goal is to establish woodwind, brass, and percussion ensembles as well as to form a Christian contemporary band and a rock band.
