Fall Classes 2015

Beginning Band and Orchestra

McCutcheon Music StudioThe sign-up period for classes with the Miami Valley Music Institute at McCutcheon Music for the 2015/2016 school year begins August 12th!

Classes start September 8th.

This is for beginning band and orchestra. It is ideal for homeschoolers and kids who don’t have a school band or orchestra or for those students who want to have more opportunities to perform with others.

Playing in a beginning band or orchestra is challenging, rewarding and fun! Making music together with other kids is a blast!
Beginners are taught from the very beginning. Students learn at a pace that works for them, while in a group setting. Extra help to achieve personal goals is part of the program. We offer a safe, non-threatening, yet challenging environment.

Suzuki Strings of the Miami Valley

Lessons are twice weekly, once privately and once with a group. Music is then shared with friends and much positive reinforcement comes from this environment. Private lessons are $25 for a half-hour, and the group classes are $20 for the whole month. The student needs to take a private lesson and the class. Children under 10 must have a parent in the lesson Private lessons are on Thursdays and the group class is on Friday at 5 PM and it starts the first week in September, although students can start lessons after that date. Lessons and classes will be taught by Lois Clond.Lois Clond
The Suzuki method was developed by Shinichi Suzuki in Japan. It has been called the “mother tongue” method because of its use of listen and learning the way children learn language. It is different from traditional music lessons in that the parent is considered to be an integral part of the learning. The parent attends all lessons and is the at-home teacher. This triangle, teacher-student-parent, allows for children to have guided practice at home.
Children can begin lessons as preschoolers.
