LESSONS & COURSES

  Piano 

At Imperial Artistry, our specialty has been piano and our teachers are as comfortable teaching classical as they are jazz; or pop as they are rock - and the lessons' popularity has served as a testament to their quality. A wonderfully versatile instrument, the piano is a staple of both the modern and classical sound, and gels easily with a variety of genres. As such, piano lessons are a firm bedrock from which to commence either a broader musical education, or develop a formidable reputation as a specialist. Either way: the piano has something to offer everyone from beginner to expert, and is an excellent choice for the 'simply curious'.

  Guitar 

The instrument of rock stars, and folk heroes. On one hand the guitar is known for its stylistic versatility, warm, light tones, and front-and-centre personalities. On the other hand, it’s often the backbone of many a rock band and jazz ensemble. The rich sound of the bass lends itself perfectly to the likes of funk, soul, or the blues. Taught by our resident guitar maestro - Xavier Dunn - these courses are a great starting point for any student interested in a modern sound, and a band mentality!

Music theory provides students with the solid foundation they need regardless of their musical interests or the direction they take.

  Flute 

The flute is the oldest woodwind instrument in history. But unlike other woodwind instruments with reeds, a flute is an aerophone or reedless wind instrument that produces its sound.

 

An instrument of precision, grace and subtlety, the flute lends itself equally well to both classical and jazz stylings. Classes focus on the instrument's integration into a band, however plenty of opportunities exist for the dedicated soloist, or those interested in forming their own brass trios, or quartets. from the flow of air across an opening.

MUSIC THEORY

 

Specifically designed to change a students mindset around theory and how ‘boring’ it is. This ‘once a term’ class is included in your term fees and is structured to the AMEB (Australian Music Examination Board) Musicianship syllabus. This unique course designed by our teachers Melody and Caleb is helping to support students and their love for playing.

 

5 REASONS WHY A CHILD SHOULD LEARN MUSIC THEORY

 

1.Gives the ability to see the whole picture of how things work in music You see, it's all very logical. There are certain rules to follow. Here we have dots and stems that have got some magical features! Each note can be expressed by two most important factors: pitch and rhythm.

2. Helps children to become independent learners.

3. Gives broad, versatile skills helpful in all future professional careers, not only in music In order to understand music theory, each student must memorise a complex set of rules and mathematically precise connections between the musical elements: intervals, subdivisions, time signatures, rhythm values, articulation, music expressions, and groupings, to name just a few.

4. Improves their memory and imagination Once someone knows the theory behind the music, the sky is the limit. The memorization of a particular piece of music is much easier. Young musicians can organize all the necessary informations into small chunks of data like 2, 4 or 8 bar phrases with specific elements in mind. It also helps them to create and compose their own pieces. All of these processes take place in one's imagination. A music film composer for instance needs to translate the emotions of a particular movie scene into sounds that will move the imagination of the viewers.

5. Boosts cognitive skills and concentration As with any demanding subject, the amount of concentration required is great, to say the least. Music theory is no different. To give you an example let's take the so-called music intervals. Interval is a gap between two notes. If you imagine for instance, a piano keyboard with white and black keys - any distance between either white to white, black to black, white to black would be an interval. The space between one white and closest black key is the smallest possible gap in western music, called a semitone/half tone.

 

There are 8 basic intervals to memorise. Each has a specific type like major, minor or perfect. The story continues and it's just the beginning.

 

"It's easy to play any musical instrument: all you have to do is touch the right key at the right time and the instrument will play itself."
