How Our Curriculum Works
Powers provides students with the tools for a lifetime love of music through a two-pronged approach:
- Customized learning
We offer high-quality instructors, a full music curriculum with a wide range of options, and resources to give all ages and abilities access to the best music education. The path through our curriculum will look different for each student, and is customized to individual talents, goals, and challenges.
- A shared experience
What always remains the same is our nurturing community atmosphere emphasizing our belief in the importance of sharing music with others, through ensembles, orchestra, group classes, performances, festivals, and the outside community.
As a community music school, we are not a conservatory (although we have many of the resources of this type of school), but instead we are a place where our community loves music, has a deep appreciation for it, and simply can’t imagine life without it.
Our youngest students just beginning their connection with music start off in our Early Childhood department. Classes in Music Pups®, Dalcroze Eurhythmics, or Suzuki Musical Kids build the foundation they need to start their journey. When students are old enough to begin studying a specific instrument, they may choose to start in our Suzuki program, or be placed with a teacher for private lessons. Our students tell us time and again how supportive their instructors are and how much they love the freedom to learn based on their interests. We offer many group programs to help students begin music instruction, or to enhance and complement lessons. Classes such as Keys for Kids® and Singing for Kids give kids and preteens the chance to learn in a group setting or perhaps try a new instrument. Older kids, teens, and adults looking to take the next step might join the jazz ensemble, rock band, chamber ensemble, piano duo, the orchesta program, or take a weekly theory class to build on the skills they are already learning.
The options are endless! Choose your path to a lifetime of music with help from our supportive, friendly staff and faculty. Consultations are available to guide you along your way. The most important thing is to jump in and have fun!
