Private Music Lessons
We believe that the best way to learn music is with one-on-one, private instruction. Each lesson is tailored individually, for the way the student learns best. We take into account age, experience, personality, and learning style. We teach ages 5 – adult! It’s never “too late” to learn how to play music.

 

One-on-one attention
Students in private lessons are able to learn the type of music they personally are most interested in. Our teachers can focus 100% of their attention on that one student to ensure that hand positioning, posture or the understanding of a particular concept are correct. If a student has a particular difficulty in one area, the teacher can work on it without hampering the progress of a class of students and alternatively, if a student is excelling in one area, the teacher can move on. We offer 30 minute and 1 hour lessons.

Our school is equipped to offer music lessons for students of all ages and abilities, from beginners to very advanced students. We offer every style of lessons from classical to jazz and pop.


 

 

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

WHAT WILL I LEARN?
Our teachers understand that every student is an individual, with personal musical needs and goals. We make it a priority to tailor how we teach and what we teach to your individual needs.

If you enroll here for lessons, your teacher will ask you about your favorite type of music, and set goals to help accomplish whatever musical aspirations you have for yourself or your child. Together, you will develop a plan to achieve your goals! We love beginners, so even if you don’t know where to begin, we can help!

WHAT STYLES OF MUSIC CAN I LEARN?
We teach all styles from rock, pop, jazz, country, worship, blues and classical. We combine the important fundamentals with the music YOU want to play. With 20 teachers at Rogers School of Music, you are sure to find the best match for YOU.

ARE YOUR INSTRUCTORS QUALIFIED?
Our instructors are highly qualified, all have teaching experience, and most importantly, they have a passion for teaching. Being a musician doesn’t automatically make you a teacher–that’s why we search for those who are best qualified for mentoring our music students!

We search the entire area for the top teachers, who embody the high values at the South Jersey Music Academy. Most importantly, our instructors strive to relate their teaching to each individual student’s learning style. Many of our instructors have gone on performance tours of the USA and Europe and have years of professional performance and teaching experience. In addition to their teaching credentials, our teachers have warm personalities, are extremely friendly, and strive to get to know each student and their parent on a personal level. We search high and low for the BEST teachers, so you don’t have to!

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO LEARN AN INSTRUMENT?
There is no set answer of how long it takes to learn an instrument. With regular practice a basic level of playing can be accomplished in a few months. Most of our students take lessons on a long term basis because they want to be constantly improving and they find the lessons enjoyable.

I DON’T HAVE ANY MUSICAL BACKGROUND OR ABILITY. CAN I STILL HELP MY CHILD PRACTICE?
Yes. Even if you don’t have a musical background you can ask the teacher for advice on how to help your child practice. By simply monitoring that they are doing exercises a certain number of times per day the student will progress. Parents will occasionally sit in on their child’s music lesson to get an idea of the proper way a song should sound or how the student should be positioning their hands.

 

Instrument Lessons
Our instructors teach a variety of styles from classical to popular music. Whether you want to learn a classical sonatina, rock chords or pop music, our teachers are happy to help you become the musician you want to be. We teach you the songs you want to learn! Choose between: Piano, Keyboard, Voice, Guitar, Bass, Drums.

Voice Studio
Everyone can sing! Some people are fortunate enough to sing well without any training or guidance. But even those lucky few need to learn what they’re doing right or wrong if they want to keep a great, healthy voice. Our voice is an original musical instrument, so we have to care for it like we would care for our own guitar, saxophone or flute. Also, your voice training is approached as you would train to play any other instrument; improvement is based mainly on practicing progressive lessons. Learn More…

Singing Groups
We offer three group singing classes: Children’s Group Singing Classes, Kids Glee Club, and 8-week Intensive Class – “Vocal Technique and Performance.” Group singing classes are a great way for children to learn in a fun environment where we can use tools like singing games to encourage them to explore their love of music.

Rock School
When musicians play together they discover music together. Rock School gives musicians of all ages a place to make music and develop their skills in a group setting. It can be the most exciting time in the life of a musician, to bring music to life with others and Rock School sets the stage! Learn More…
