Dana's Music Studio is passionate about helping people love to learn and perform music. Music is an art of expression for the individual creating it and at Dana's Music Studio, lessons are focused around this principle. They goes far beyond just acquiring the usual check boxes of your average piano lesson. Each students individual goals drive their lessons in whichever direction they choose, from wanting to learn a specific song to becoming the next Beyonce, and their goals are free from any judgement or pressure to change.
All students get explore the full array of musical styles, from the basics of classical music to modern indie rock. Basic theory, improvisation, ear training and chord reading are all staples in music education and are taught to all students. Collaboration with other musicians and bands is encouraged with a program to help develop this is coming soon.
Students enrolled at the studio also enjoy the benefit of their own private YouTube channels where they can view the latest video updates from their lessons and can literally watch their progress grow and grow.
Dana's Music Studio also hosts Piano Night at Olio's Pizza once a month. This is a free, all ages event, and is a great way to get out and meet with other musicians. Piano Night isn't a recital and you don't have to be the best to play. It's also open to anyone so if you have a friend who plays piano, they're welcome too. If you don't play piano, come anyways and enjoy the delicious food and live music!
