One-On-One Instruction
The most effective learning occurs with individual attention.  Lesson lengths are 30min, 45min, or 1 hour.  Additional lessons may be scheduled if desired.

Music Theory
All students are required to learn about music theory, as it is a part of lessons.  Learning theory can enhance piano playing and help students gain appreciation for music.

Ear Training/Sight-Reading 
It is critical to train the ears as well as learn to play at first sight. When a student is ready, Mr. Tyson incorporates this into his or her lessons.

Music Appreciation
Music appreciation ties in and solidifies learning acquired during lessons. Students will learn how to listen and appreciate various styles of music.
