All instrument lessons include instruction on
Proper instrument techniques
This happens throughout the course of the students' training. The amount of time spent with each topic depends on the student's interest and ability.
The first music book is provided to the student free of charge. A Sound Agency will also provide notebooks for the student, so they know what they are expected to practice from lesson to lesson. The student is to bring both their music and their notebooks to each lesson.
Personalized Practice Videos
Everybody learns differently. Some people find it helpful to have a video while they practice to help them understand their practice material. At A Sound Agency, we are happy to help fill this need for your particular learning style! Each video is individualized for the student. Below is an example of a practice video used by a student of A Sound Agency:
