Welcome to the Amadeus Conservatory of Music 

Music education is an invaluable tool.  Learning to play the piano, keyboard, violin, guitar, the trombone, clarinet, drums, and other instruments with a competent and knowledgeable music teacher will help your child succeed in his other studies and classes; spending time in a musical program will keep him off the streets and out of trouble; and learning to create and appreciate music and music theory will develop his intelligence, build his confidence, self-esteem, and a sense of accomplishment.

           Studies have shown that kids who study music perform higher on standardized tests, have a higher than average rate of admittance to college,[1] and are more likely to go on to higher education.  The United States Department of Education stated that "Many colleges view participation in the arts and music as a valuable experience that broadens students’ understanding and appreciation of the world around them. It is also well known and widely recognized that the arts contribute significantly to children’s intellectual development."[2]  Learning to play the piano will directly affect a child’s reading comprehension, math, and logic skills.  In fact, “the very best engineers and technical designers in the Silicon Valley industry are, nearly without exception, practicing musicians.”[3]  And learning about the different music pieces and composers will expose your son or daughter to the world’s rich history of arts and culture. 

Many of us enjoy playing or listening to music as an escape from the hectic world.  To a young person dealing with peer pressure and trying to make the right decisions, music may very well be an escape from tough situations and poor choices.  The extra time spent in music class and practice will help your child avoid the dangers of experimenting with illegal drugs.  In fact, students who participated in music programs reported the lowest lifetime and current use of all substances, such as alcohol, tobacco, and drugs.[4]   

Choose Music

            Music education will not only help a child with his homework, and give him busy work, but will in fact make him feel much more secure and confident in his abilities.  “Studying music encourages self-discipline and diligence, traits that carry over into intellectual pursuits and that lead to effective study and work habits. Creating and performing music promotes self-expression and provides self-gratification while giving pleasure to others.”[5]  In the words of Former President Bill Clinton, “Music is about communication, creativity, and cooperation, and, by studying, students have the opportunity to build on these skills, enrich their lives, and experience the world from a new perspective.”

 Amadeus Piano Co., Inc. offers many opportunities to enrich a child’s world through in-home classes for beginners through advanced piano, voice, theory, and all other instruments.  All our teachers are qualified musicians and educators who put their students’ individual needs and personalities first in order to introduce the new generation to the world of music, and let the students make it their own safe, challenging, and inspiring experience that will bring a lifetime of enrichment and enjoyment.

 

Five Good Reasons to Play Piano…At Least a Little
(plus there are many more!)
Most often, music lovers are content to merely listen. We listen to the works of our favorite artists in admiration -- even envy -- of their great talents, yet we rarely consider the possibility of making music ourselves. With our busy modern lives, the majority of adults long ago set aside their musical aspirations in favor of so-called "more realistic" goals.
But why is this? Sure, by a certain age, it does become more realistic to put to rest dreams of being rock stars or symphony orchestra composers. Even so, playing music is not all about achieving fame and recognition. On the contrary, there are countless reasons to take up a musical instrument. Piano, in particular, is a popular choice for adults, due to its simplicity, versatility, and the pure beauty of its sound. Here are a few reasons why you should learn to play piano:
1) Mental well-being: Playing music promotes brain health to a far greater degree than more passive, less creative home-based activities like watching television, reading, or playing games. Indeed, studies have shown that the links between music and intelligence are more than merely theoretical. Practicing and playing piano sharpens hand-eye coordination, hones math and memorization skills, and enhances the brain's ability to think creatively. Some studies have even shown that learning an instrument can increase one's IQ.
2) Self-esteem: At work, upon successfully completing a project, most of us feel a special sense of gladness and self-worth. Playing music can be the same way. Musicians often describe a "high" that is felt while they are playing, a self-esteem boost that can extend into one's daily life.
3) Stress reduction: Learning an instrument is a great way to reduce stress. After a difficult day out in the chaotic world, there is nothing more comforting than the simple and ordered system of a piano keyboard. Then, whether practicing or simply playing for pleasure, it doesn't take long to totally immerse oneself in the music. Soon, the stresses and cares of the world are forgotten, gently brushed aside by music's pure melody and harmony.
4) User-friendliness: Of course, there are many instruments that one can learn to play, but none is more simple and straightforward than the piano. With woodwind instruments, such as flute or clarinet, the player must memorize a huge number of finger positions for every note. Guitar, too, is a popular instrument for adults, but most people who learn guitar simply memorize the chords, while learning very little about music theory -- which is important. With piano, you can learn chords too, but also learn to read sheet music.
Soon after taking up the piano, you will have learned many of the ins and outs of music theory without even realizing it. This is because the piano keyboard is the most perfect musical interface ever created. The system of seven white keys and five black keys is a simple visual representation of the musical scale.
To illustrate, if you can perform the simple act of pressing the seven white keys in order from C to C, then you already know how to play the C Major scale! Some guitar players never learn that. This is why people who play other instruments tend to visualize a piano keyboard while playing; the piano puts the entire structure of music right in front of you.
5) Convenience: Because of its user-friendliness and the pure perfection of its sound, the piano is not only one of the most widely used instruments in compositions and recordings, but it is also a ubiquitous presence in the average American middle-class household. For this reason, private piano lessons are much easier to find, and more affordable, than lessons in other instruments. In all likelihood, your neighborhood has several qualified piano teachers, who are usually easy to find via newspaper and Internet ads. Some teachers will come to you, while others will require you to take lessons on their own pianos. You can even find wonderful piano courses on the internet just by typing something like "piano lessons for adults" into any search engine.
Meanwhile, though it goes without saying, piano is also one of the most fun instruments to play. It can be played softly, loudly, or anywhere in between, and it accommodates a wide range of speeds, emotions, and musical styles. Plus, after a few lessons, when your fingers have gained a degree of limberness, the piano makes it very easy to create playful improvisations and compositions of your own. It's true that few of us will ever achieve our rock star dreams, but who cares? Playing at home -- for family, friends, pets, or just yourself -- can be just as rewarding.
