A new paradigm in Music Education



A MUSIC COLLEGE FOR K-12 STUDENTS


These days, kids are practically born with an iPad in their hands. The goal of So.i.Heard House of Music is to teach students music in their own tech-savvy language, and to provide guided and tracked private music lessons in a fun environment that’s more like a music college. Students learn how to play an instrument, read, write, and record music, all within a fun, safe, and high-tech environment built for K-12.

The So.i.Heard Method



PRIVATE INSTRUCTION PROGRAM


All So.i.Heard students are enrolled in weekly private lessons with a consistent instructor. Since every student learns at a different pace, our facility operates according to the Kodaly Method for Music Education which takes into account differences in the ways and rates at which children learn.

All students follow a basic level system on their path through So.i.Heard, while learning at their own pace and in the way they learn best as determined by their instructor. The levels are completely independent of age and are based on individual student preferences and abilities.

Production students must have completed at least Level 2 on Keyboard to enter the production path. While production students may want to jump right into making songs, in order to write music it is necessary to have at least a basic foundation of instrumental and musical knowledge before becoming a producer.


So.i.heard STUDENTS CAN CONTINUE THEIR PURSUIT OF MUSICAL KNOWLEDGE INDEFINITELY.

 THERE IS NO LIMIT AT SO.I.HEARD.
