Jazz  Improvisation studies

We teach the art of improvisation. You can literally improvise on any instrument, and make up your own melodies. Yes, improvisation is learnable and absolute fun. Whether it is in the context of a Jazz Band, a pop song and even in Rockn' Roll, improvisation is key to expressing yourself in a modern musical context.

This is not a group course, but one on one music instruction. 

Ask us to learn improvisation, and you will love to express yourself freely on your favorite instrument.

Piano n'drums curriculum

   This is not a group lesson, but a curriculum for individual lessons

 

We believe that rhythm is the basics of music, and drumming is fun! Therefore, we have developed a curriculum called Piano n'drums that has our young 6-9 year old students play 15 minutes drums and percussions and have 15 minutes beginner piano instruction. This method has proven to be very inspiring as an entrance into the world of music  and as a first individual lesson experience for the young child.

Instead of traditional beginners piano lessons, ask for PIANO N'DRUMS! Your child will love it!

The TANDEM class

The 1/2 hour Tandem Class is an introductory level lesson that teaches beginners a specific instrument. We team up two children of similar ages ( starting at 5 years, perfect for siblings or best friends) to introduce them to their instrument of choice ( piano, guitar, flute, violin, voice etc)

This format has proven to be very motivating to the beginners, since both participants learn the same curriculum and share the excitement of the new instrument.

Specifics: Any teacher, any time, any day

This ensemble is for all acoustic instruments: violin, flute, guitar, piano, voice, clarinet, ukulele or tin whistle. We will play pop and folk songs, classic tunes, and even original tunes brought in by the participants. At JOMA, we believe that music needs to be shared with others, and this class is a wonderful platform. 2 years of instrumental practice is required.   Performances will be scheduled at the end of the course!

Who: All instrumentalists between the age of 10 and 16

CURRENTLY NOT OFFERED

           Acoustic Ensemble
Youth Drumming with David

You are between 8 and 18, and really want to dive into the world of rhythm, congas, djembe, tropical and African rhythms and have the funnest instructor at JOMA be your teacher, this course is for you! This is a group class where everybody plays a hand drum or any kind of percussion instrument, learning how play different rhythms, blend into a group where everyone has a different  pattern, and just feel good!
