THE NEW PARADIGM IN MUSIC EDUCATION

THE NEW PARADIGM IN MUSIC EDUCATION



A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT APPROACH


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. We teach piano lessons, keyboard lessons, drum lessons, percussion lessons, voice lessons, guitar lessons, songwriting lessons, brass lessons, violin lessons, and more, in our Millburn-Short Hills, NJ studio. In addition to the Millburn-Short Hills area, we serve Maplewood, South Orange, Westfield, Livingston, Summit, Parsippany, and beyond. Book a consultation, or click here to learn more.


THERE IS NO BETTER PLACE FOR A K-12 STUDENT TO LEARN MUSIC.

PRIVATE LESSONS

PRIVATE LESSONS



ONE-ON-ONE INSTRUCTION


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 of our lessons utilize technology and recording software as a means of motivating students to practice at home.  Students learn traditional theory and techniques, and are given the chance to record their hard work once a piece is practiced up to speed. Through this method we've seen a dramatic increase in the motivation levels of our students.

We are also one of the only facilities in the country to teach real music production to the K-12 age group.  Production students must have at least 2 years of experience on any instrument.


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

 THERE IS NO LIMIT AT SO.I.HEARD.
