For young singers and their parents, it can be very confusing between voice lessons and vocal coaching. A vocal teacher focuses on technique that is appropriate for the age level and maturity of the student where a vocal coach focuses on the presentation and delivery of the song. Theater Steps instructors are trained in both giving each student a collaborative balance of breath control, vowel placement, and tone execution with the song delivery for every age level. We have a high concentration on classical, musical theater, and pop music.

Piano lessons encourage discipline in learning the basics of music, reading notes, learning scales and music terminology that builds greater connectivity in the brain. Studies have shown that piano lessons enhance analytical ability and creative problem solving that aid in everyday life.

Playing the guitar will mean learning totally new hand and finger movements, almost like learning to walk. Guitar lessons strengthen hand muscles allowing you to learn very precise, coordinated finger movements as well. The only way to learn these movements, improve your hand muscle memory, and really progress at playing the guitar, is to practice regularly.

Young budding musicians are given lessons that cover a wide range of concepts through exercises, activities and movement. Children and adults learn differently. Children are quicker at adapting the motor muscle skills without it feeling awkward. Adults sometimes have to relearn motor skills correctly although they are able to pick up concepts quickly. Theater Steps Early Childhood lessons offer a variety of musical games that help young children retain concepts through experience. This early music development will prepare students for note reading in any instrument.
