If you're looking for a different sound, this is the place. Three different types of banjos and other unusual sounds to add real spice to jazz and bluegrass music. The banjo can be a great hard swinging accompaniment instrument, or an incredible solo instrument that stands apart from the crowd. The driving sound of a bass will power a complete band. The beauty of a mandolin solo in bluegrass music is distinctive and punctual. The uke is laid back, relaxing and accompanies the singer very well.
Beginner students can expect to work on chords, simple
songs and melodies, sight reading and theory.
We balance musicianship and fun by making sure that in each lesson you
are challenged with a new technical and theoretical concept, but always includes
something fun to play.
Bass, an easy beginning instrument for students with well developed hands. Bass is the power and driving force behind any band. Be a part of it! Pick a style and go for it! Whether it's swinging a jazz bass line, propelling a two-beat country tune, or driving that rock and roll, the bass can be a part of your life. Beginner bass students can expect to work on
notes and patterns, simple songs and melodies, sight reading and theory. We balance musicianship and fun by making
sure that in each lesson you are challenged with a new technical and
theoretical concept, but always includes something fun to play.
Brass ~ Trumpet & Trombone
The trumpet is a popular brass instrument that is played in both bands and orchestras. The trumpet player produces tones by vibrating his or her lips and blowing into a cup-shaped mouthpiece. Notes on the trumpet can be changed by changing fingerings on the trumpet's three valves and by changing lip tension.
The trombone is a brass-wind instrument that is most typically used as the tenor voice in a brass section. It has a cup-shaped mouthpiece, a slide mechanism, and a nine foot tube that is folded to overlap in the center. Some orchestras also use bass trombones which have a lower fundamental note.
Drums and percussion are the oldest form of instruments. As time went on, drums were made with newer and newer materials, until there were medals, plastics, and many others. You will gain a solid foundation and learn the five main topics: musicianship, hand-to-hand technique, snare drum reading, drum set coordination, and repertoire development, with each week becoming increasingly more challenging.
Guitar is a great musical instrument to get started on. It makes a great accompaniment instrument for those that like to sing. The guitar is super for soaring solo work. It can also create a driving rhythm to power rock and roll. Guitar lessons at ScottSound Music are fun. Our guitar teachers can teach you to play any style of guitar music including jazz, folk, classical, rock, country and blues. Our Guitar Ensemble Performance Programs are great tools for students to learn how to play together and explore new avenues of music. These groups play many styles of music including rock, jazz, blues, country and folk.
Piano & Keyboards
Piano, the most complete instrument in range. An excellent accompaniment for singers and a commanding solo instrument. Not only is the piano superior in range, it transcends styles and centuries in music. From great jazz players to rock and roll to country and the classics, piano powerfully runs the spectrum in music.
Piano students learn the fundamentals of sight reading, technique, theory and will also incorporate your favorite songs into your lessons. You do not have to have a piano at home to take lessons. A simple full-size electronic keyboard will suffice. Whether you want to play classical, Broadway, or contemporary, we are happy to help you become the pianist you want to be.
Voice is the most intimate of instruments. It is human. It takes a special teacher to evoke beauty from the human voice. We have a great voice teacher at ScottSound Music. Whether you are an experienced singer or just getting started, the vast majority of singers are not completely confident with every part of their voice.
Voice students spend time each week doing physical exercises
to improve their vocal range, ear training, breath control, vibrato, tone
production, enunciation and more. All
voice students set goals with their teacher to work on sounding like their
favorite recording artists, or if they prefer, to develop their own unique
