Treble Strings nurtures a love of music in our students first and foremost. Making music should be fun, but learning to make music can be difficult and frustrating, even under the most ideal circumstances. The wrong program, teacher, or instrument can drive someone away from music, and there are people who want to learn but are turned away because of their age or supposed aptitude. At Treble Strings, we believe music is for everyone, and while we encourage our students to reach their full potential, we do not discourage anyone from making music, regardless of their age or abilities.
We have organized our lesson options first by instrument, then by age, and finally by location. If this doesn't work for you, perhaps because you are looking for lesson options for multiple students or because you are very new to the idea of studying music and feel overwhelmed, you don't have to do any research in advance. You can just email email@example.com or call (816) 945-2114, and we will walk you through the process of finding the information you need.
Not sure which instrument you would like to play? That's ok! Some people hear or see an instrument being played, and they instantly know they were born to do that. Others would be happy no matter what instrument they choose. We encourage you to read about each instrument, and if you are still not sure, try one for a few months so you can get an idea of what it might be like to make a long-term commitment to that instrument.
In addition to lessons in our studio, we also offer home and online lessons, allowing each of our students to learn where they are most comfortable. As with any major change in an industry, there is a lot of resistance to online lessons. There is a belief that they are inferior to studio lessons because you cannot touch the student or see them from all angles. This has not been our experience at Treble Strings. We have online students who are performing above average compared to the students we meet in person. They have had successful auditions and competitions. The more we gain teaching students through this program, the more convinced we are that the resistance is simply a reluctance to change. Children who are accustomed to using technology as a tool for learning through school are very comfortable with online lessons and adapt very easily. We used to advertise online lessons as being an alternative that should be chosen only if you do not have a better option locally. We don't do that, anymore, because we no longer believe that local is always better. If you are have questions or concerns about online lessons, we would love to talk to you about why online lessons might be a good option for you or your child.
