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 through our very special brand of private music lessons, band lessonsadapted lessons, and music therapy services. Students can 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 beginner through advanced piano lessons, keyboard lessons, drum lessons, percussion lessons, voice lessons, guitar lessons, songwriting 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, and beyond.


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 the same instructor every week. 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. As part of the lesson experience, students learn traditional theory and techniques, and are given the chance to record their hard work once a piece is practiced up to speed. Students are also encouraged to be creative and write their own music! Through this method we've seen a dramatic increase in the motivation levels over those seen with typical private lesson methods.


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

 THERE IS NO LIMIT AT SO.i.HEARD.
