Programs Tailor Made for All Needs
Introduction Program - Beginner Class
Main Street Music is very accustomed to teaching beginners – each teacher has started from scratch with countless beginning students. We stress music reading, proper technique and posture, introductory exercises based on familiar songs, and proper practice methods at home. Students move from Beginner Classes after achieving pre-determined milestones.
Basic Program - Intermediate Class
Students who have successfully completed the Beginner Class, or have demonstrated similar aptitude, are able to choose an intermediate program that meets their taste and musical direction. The teacher will have suggestions for the student based on aptitude and interest, and will develop the program in conjunction with the student.
Rock Band 101 - Summer Program
Players who would like to perform in an ensemble format are encouraged to take part in Main Street Music's "Rock Band 101" program. We provide the equipment, the setlist, the venue, and the live sound reinforcement.
Sessions are designed to produce an eight- to ten-song set, and the band performs on-stage in front of friends, relatives, and guests. The players help pick the songlist, the band name, and the instruments for each number.
Over the past many years, players have made concerts of classic rock, punk, jazz, and pop songs, in venues ranging from the Odeum to the Red Rock Grill to the posh "Upton Room" at the Greenwich Hotel.
