About Harumi’s Studio
Harumi welcomes students in all levels (beginner to advanced level) in ages 5 and up. In weekly lessons, students learn to read and understand the notated music and play them at the piano. They learn various musical concepts (pitch, rhythm, harmony, structure, etc.), and proper way of playing the piano with good physical motions to produce beautiful sound. They will also develop the skill in careful, attentive listening. Music theory, musical terms and symbols, aural skills, music history are taught to students when appropriate.
The lessons are mostly individual lessons. Each lesson is 30, 45, 60, or 90 minutes long, once a week. Assignments are given to students each week. The repertoire students learn are mostly classical piano solo literatures, and occasionally piano duets and ensemble pieces, pop music, jazz music.
If a student is 5 years old, one parent is asked to stay during the lessons.
The lessons on instruments other than piano, such as voice, flute, violin, is also given upon request. The composition lesson is also available. The lesson time can be spent on two instruments, for example, in 1-hour lesson, we can spend 30 minutes in piano, 30 minutes in flute.
If there are enough students of 5-6 years old, who are just starting to learn music, a group lesson can be set up, if possible.
The students who show readiness to perform will be encouraged to perform in public events such as Studio Recital, Marvelous Musicale, Clementi Festival, Achievement Day, Rising Stars Festival, etc.
For instrumental and vocal students and choirs, Harumi offers piano accompaniment at their concerts, competitions and festivals.
