Although there are a lot of fun things going on at Music Pillars. We want parents to understand that we take the education of a student musically very seriously. Each "Pillar" (Love, Audiation, Theory, Pattern Recognition, Dexterity, Improvisation, Sight-Reading, and Composition) has 10 levels. With levels 8-10 being college admission standards for the very finest Music Colleges in the world (Julliard, Curtis institute, Moscow Conservatory, etc...) True - the vast majority of students will be content (as will parents) with being able to play in the Piano Bands, do some composing, and being able to play hymns in church. And certainly that is acceptable to us at MP. However, we know that there will also be stand-out musicians (typically identified by us at an early age) that really could become a special musician. So for those students - levels 7-10 are there to help provide the tools and framework to really become a functioning and persuasive musician. Anyway, back to a brief overview of the Pillars.
