Why Piano Lessons?
The aim and final end of all music should be none other than the glory of God and the refreshment of the soul.”
~Johann Sebastian Bach
God is the Creator of all things, including music, and it should therefore be used to praise and glorify Him.
“…For thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.” Revelation 4:11
“He hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God.” Psalm 40:3
It is my goal that each student will become a skilled musician who will use his/her talents and abilities to serve the Lord. It is important that each student receive a balanced music education that will prepare them for whatever their future in music may be. Every aspect of music works together and contributes to the overall ability of any musician. For this reason I include performance, ear training, technique, theory, composition, improvisation, and sight-reading in the music education of each student.
Even if piano is not the ultimate or only musical goal you have for your children, the basic skills, techniques, and character learned from piano lessons will prove useful in many areas of life – musical and otherwise.
