Teach.

Teachers are the most essential part of our mission which is to offer the best in music education for students through an environment of creativity and collaboration, with an emphasis on performing.

Emphasis on Performance

At Sound Studios Olympia we emphasize giving students of all ages and abilities opportunities to share their music with friends, family, and our community. This means that teachers are asked to work with students with that in mind. Not that every student would participate in every performance, but rather, a teacher would work with students and place a few into every performance opportunity. It could be the same student or few students, or it can change depending on who was prepared, that all would be up to you. Teachers are also encouraged to create performance events for their own students as well as collaborate with other teachers at SSO. For example, young piano students do not get as much opportunity to work with other instrumentalists of the same age range or abilities, so why not have a young clarinet student play Mary Had a Little Lamb with a young piano student? Include a few basic chords and now the young pianist is an accompanist and the clarinetist a soloist. We want to be creative and inventive and the more minds we have brainstorming new ways to share our music, the better we will be.
