Music & Voice Classes
VOICE. PIANO. GUITAR. PERCUSSION. BRASS. WOODWINDS
Studio 3 is Gilbert’s center for pre-professional voice and music studies. We offer group lessons in voice, piano, & guitar, and private lessons in voice, piano, guitar, drumset, percussion, brass, & woodwind instruments. Studio 3 is also home to one of Arizona’s premier Glee programs: the Studio 3 Showstoppers!
Music is a powerful tool in a child’s education. Research has show that children who are actively involved in music:
- Do better in reading
- Learn coordination, goal-setting, concentration, and cooperation
- Are more likely to do better in math & science because music helps build reasoning skills and cognitive development.
- Get along better with their peers and have higher self-esteem
Private v. Group Instruction
Private Lessons give students one-on-one instruction that helps them to progress at a faster pace than group instruction. Teachers are also able to shape each lesson to benefit the student individually so they are focusing on their strengths and developing their weaknesses to reach their fullest potential!
Group Lessons can be a more inexpensive alternative to private lessons, but often the curriculum of group lessons are different. In a group lesson, students are able to work on balance and blend, singing with other students, and have more opportunities to learn to sing harmonies. All Studio 3 group music lessons incorporate music theory as part of the curriculum.
Semi-Private Lessons are a great way to get the best of both worlds. 2-4 students can attend a semi-private lesson, which allows for a smaller class size with more individual attention.
At Studio 3, we begin music lessons with students as young as 5 years old! This is the best time in life to get your child started with music. When they develop their “ear” and basic techniques early in life, they learn faster and can apply this knowledge to other instruments in the future. Piano and Voice are the best place to start. Here, students can learn the fundamental music concepts needed for other musical instruments. Brass and woodwind instruments are more physically challenging and may not be appropriate until the fourth or fifth grade.
Do your music classes perform?
YES! Each semester, Studio 3 has a Solo & Ensemble Showcase, where private, semi-private, and group music students are able to showcase what they have learned throughout the year. It also helps them develop confidence and self-esteem, and monitor their growth throughout the year. These showcases take place in December and May.
