Music Lessons at Klaudia's Music Studio

~~~ 

Welcome to in-person, online and hybrid learning!

Hurray!!! In September 2021 we are opening our doors slowly and gradually to some in-person lessons. Klaudia’s Music Studio adjusted to the newest protocols and spaced out organization of lessons, making sure safety is priority for all. We take 5-minute break between each private music class to accommodate the switch over and cleaning. 

Before we get into explaining about reopening rules for in-person lessons, we need to thank all ONLINE students who keep showing up weekly to their lessons since March 2020!!! The commitment is huge. The sacrifice they all had to make is huge. For both teachers and students. Students’ progress and pride is also huge. We admire every single one of our students for not giving up on music, on us, on continuous education. We are very grateful. Resilience during the toughest times of Klaudia’s Music Studio history is remarkable. All ONLINE students deserve a grand applause. Bravo!!! 

Back to our new rules. If you happen to be the one switching to face-to-face lessons, we ask you to follow our guidelines and appreciate your efforts in making sure things run smoothly. The Studio implemented these rules for reopening: 

  1. ENTRANCE: There is one dedicated entrance at the location of your lesson. You are not allowed to enter through any other entrance. 
  2. LOCKED DOORS: Doors will be locked so no unauthorized person enters our premises. Teacher will come get the student and drop of the student at these doors at the end of class. 
  3. STUDENTS ONLY: Parents are NOT allowed in the church, no exceptions. 
  4. BE ON TIME: Drop off and pick up right on time, wait in the parking area. Teacher cannot wait at the pick up time, because we need to clean rooms before next student arrives. 
  5. MASKS: Masks are worn at all times. 
  6. COVID SCREENING: Before each in-person lesson fill out the Covid screening form online, on our website. Email it to [email protected]mail.com or print and bring its with you. 
  7. HOUSEHOLD: Please do not come to class if any of your household members are not well. We have Zoom at the studio and students can login from home if needed. Contact us if you need your teacher’s Zoom info.
  8. SOCIAL DISTANCE: Keep 2 metres apart whenever possible.

 

Enough of the rules, let this be a happy reunion for students and teachers, greeting each other with smiles under the masks. Thank you for reading!

We rent instruments by appointment. We tune instruments by appointment. 

Teaching during pandemic: We facilitate Royal Conservatory of Music Exam complete preparation. Junior Music and all theory lessons are taking place online, too. Orchestras are suspended. ~~~

At Klaudia’s Music Studio we provide piano accompaniment for strings for the exams and festivals. We normally teach in private setting as one-on-one lesson, or group setting. Group lessons vary from year to year, ask about our piano, violin or theory group class if you are interested. Currently all group lessons are suspended until further notice.  

Playing a musical instrument has been proven to be good for brain development, lengthen the attention span, help become a better listener, and also develop stronger coordination and focus skills. Together we can rekindle music in our students’ hearts and pass it on to the next generation.


We will be happy to accept students as young as 3.5 years old, preferably 5 and up, as well as older students, advanced or adult students for private music lessons.

In instrumental lessons, we combine melody and musicality. It is essential that quality tutoring begins with proper posture. This aspect is so crucial, for playing on any instrument regardless of the method employed. Great results are directly linked to a proper line-up/instrument holding/positioning. If we do not emphasize this technical aspect of learning enough, it often leads to deeper problems later, resulting in a stagnation of musical development. Correction in posture is not always successful when caught late in the teaching cycle. And then there is a countless range of dynamics, expressions, moods, periods, styles, techniques, and so on. Musicality is the most important aspect of learning music, as there is much more to it than just playing the notes. Music cannot be imposed, cannot be forced on to – it needs to come from one’s heart. All too often we see “automated playing” which we at Klaudia’s Music Studio try to cultivate with variety of expressions in range of dynamics, speed and intensity.

In theory lessons, we complete student’s musical education. Reading music is an essential part of the study right from the beginning, even to very young. Once the concept is grasped it gives students confidence to be independent in playing and elevates the learning curve. Theory lessons comprise of many elements described in detail on Theory Lessons Page.

If music is something you consider a priority, the tutoring will consist of all the aspects of the Royal Conservatory of Music Syllabus and its respective examinations. We prepare students for practical examination from Preparatory Level to Level 10 and beyond, along with theory at level 5 and on.

If you want to explore the music for fun, starting as a child, or picking it up later in life: we have just the right tools for you. The goal is to accomplish and sustain progress at all times. This is accomplished with proper aimed and enriched tutoring, including all aspects of music: ear training, rhythm, note reading, improvisation, proper holding, or positioning while playing the instrument and all-over musicality.
