An innovative and exciting program!
From rehearsing, to recording, to performing, at Arc Music Studio you get to experience every aspect of what it means to be real musician.
build a musical foundation
academic development
Good technique is crucial to performing freely and accessing a full range of tone and dynamics. It also helps to reduce tension and prevent physically injury, allowing for a lifetime of performance and enjoyment.
Everyone wants to have a repertoire of pieces they can perform for family, auditions, or for their own satisfaction! At Arc Music Studio, students study a variety of styles and genres to suit their goals.
aural/reading skills
Improving the ability to read, recognize, and differentiate between various pitches, intervals, chords, and rhythms increases your understanding of music and helps you learn pieces more quickly.
Preparing for an exam provides excellent motivation for mastering technique and repertoire, and is a great way to receive valuable feedback and assessment of your skills.
explore your creative side
creative development
Not only is recording incredibly fun, it also requires consideration of who you are as an artist. Recording the repertoire you've learned throughout the year provides a wonderful memory and benchmark of your learning thus far; and listening back to your recordings is one of the best learning tools available!
music writing
Writing your own piece of music is a terrific way to apply your musical knowledge and get your creative juices flowing. Many students at the studio have even received provincial and national scholarships for their compositions! With music writing, the sky's the limit!
Being able to perform your music expressively is truly the pinnacle of the musical experience. What story are you trying to tell? What emotions is your character experiencing? Learn how to paint a picture for your listener and take them on the journey with you.
Improvisation means being able to come up with your own original idea on the spot. It requires the ability to hear what's going on around you, think quickly, and respond musically. Improvisation lies at the heart of jazz, but can also be found in numerous other genres.
share the musical spirit
social development
group sessions
In addition to private lessons at the studio, each student participates in four group sessions per year. These classes provide an excellent opportunity to meet other students at the studio and share your questions or insights. Group sessions are workshop based on various topics of interest.
Arc Music Studio hosts two studio recitals each year for students to perform for family, friends, and community. Recitals are a wonderful way for students to gain confidence as performers in a comfortable and supportive environment. They also provide an opportunity to showcase new skills and be inspired by hearing fellow musicians perform.
Participating in a music festival is a terrific way to share your musical spirit! It provides an opportunity to practice performance skills and gain feedback and encouragement from a knowledgeable adjudicator. What better way to hear a variety of repertoire, and be motivated and inspired to achieve your best!
