Why take lessons?
Private music lessons are a vital part of a musician's development and continued progress. This is accomplished through exercises, explanation, and a critical eye looking over tendencies and habit development. Music students of all ages and abilities benefit from a teacher who will help guide their progress.
Studies have shown that music is beneficial to developing minds, as well as the minds of adults who want to keep sharp. It's not magical, but it is clear that studying and engaging with music stimulates and exercises the brain in ways that are not met by other practices. That being said, we still view our music as our art and our passion more than anything else. Music moves us, and it brings people together. One of the reasons why at Sound Studios Olympia we want to create performance opportunities for all of our students is because we believe that we learn music with the sole purpose of sharing it. Our concert events are almost all open to the public, and we invite the community in for events and classes throughout the year.
