Students enrolled at Tiffany Piano Studio, have opportunities to participate in summer camps, winter camp, incentive programs, and two recitals a year. In short, students who study at a music school receive a more well-rounded music education. If there is a music program at a public school they use “Tees and Tas” to teach concepts and this method is used nowhere in music and has no baring on music played or performed anywhere in the world, and yet it is taught in many public schools during the four weeks music is taught.
Music study is most effective if you have a qualified teacher and an environment that is conducive to learning music. In a school setting, students are focused solely on music. We recommend in-home lessons for students who are 10 years of age or older. Younger students are too easily distracted by pets, visitors, sibling and parents. No matter if lessons are in your home or at our school, being part of a musical community is extremely motivating!
At Tiffany Piano Studio we provide our students with many opportunities for both technical and artistic advancement. From a student’s first lesson, we strive to provide our students with the best curriculum and experiences based on their interests. At the first lesson we ask all of our students “What do you want to learn?” We continue to ask this question as the years go on because playing songs that relate to you form your connection to music.
Our students begin reading music around the second-third month of lessons. We believe that lessons should be a balance of note reading, ear training, and FUN. Along with private lessons we encourage all students, even if they just began lessons, to participate in our recitals. We want all our students to understand that our recitals are laid back and are an environment of support and most importantly FUN.
At Tiffany Piano Studio our students are encouraged to participate in Rhapsody Reward, a motivating ribbon and trophy program that motivates students to continue with their lessons. Along with Rhapsody rewards we have Proficiency Awards for students. The Proficiency Awards make sure all our students are learning the theory and technique needed to have a well- rounded music education. These rewards and proficiency tests give our students goals that keep them motivated for years. We invite you to learn more about our music lessons and motivation programs.
With our approach to lessons “You choose the songs you want to learn.” With our community of TPS families, professional teachers and outstanding facilities, students have fun! Our helpful front desk staff is always available to assist students and families with information about lessons, practice tips, and more. Students should look forward to their lessons. With the fun games and flashcards we use there is always something new to learn or review and a fun activity to add to the lesson plan. We believe in giving back to the community. We love being involved with SOVA food pantry, A Window Between Worlds, and Musicians on Call.
TPS offers more performance and assessment opportunities than any other music school in our area. These opportunities are not required of any student, however we find great value in the process or preparation and performance. We believe performing builds self confidence, aids in motivation and helps develop time management skills. TPS students enjoy opportunities to perform in casual recitals, held at UCLA and the Steinway Performance Hall. Our proficiency awards help prepare all our students for college level theory and technique. Each teacher adapts these tests to fit the student’s level and motivate them to obtain their goals.
No time to sit in L.A. traffic, no problem. TPS offers lessons in-home for students over the age of 10. This cuts down on hours spent in the car. For families that have siblings taking lessons many TPS families enjoy lesson times that occur simultaneously or back to back for their family members. We are located off of the ten, 10 minutes North, making travel to and from lessons convenient for families in Los Angeles, West Los Angeles, Culver City, Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Baldwin Hills, Beverlywood, Beverlywill, Castle Heights, Cheviot Hills and UCLA area.
