Westside Music School... Where the Music Begins!
Founded in 1988
Music lessons and music instruction are about much more than simply learning to read notes and knowing where they land on a piano or keyboard. Unfortunately, many music schools and music studios leave it at that.
At Westside Music School our music instruction and music teachers believe that to learn to play the piano, or any instrument, the music begins long before a student is able to read notes on a page. Music begins within each of us – through listening, singing and rhythmic activities. As these skills are developed, note reading will come more naturally and students experience total musical development.
Harmony Road Curriculum
The Westside Music School philosophy is founded on the Harmony Road Curriculum, where students learn by doing: first by honing the ear and singing; then by singing and playing on the piano or keyboard; finally bringing the student’s music education full circle by reading notes.
Music Lessons Enrich Our Lives
Music lessons make our lives richer by expanding horizons, developing creativity and imagination, and providing a lifetime of enjoyment. Whether you or your child are pursuing music instruction as a hobby or on a competitive or professional level, learning to play the piano or other instrument will help to create a sense of self-worth, a joy of learning, and a love for music.
