“To play without passion is inexcusable!” Beethoven

  Patten Music Studio


Our studio is unique, in that we combine the learning methods and curriculum from Simply Music with a variety of other learning resources to enhance a student's music education. Simply Music® is a remarkable, Australian-developed piano and keyboard program that has beginning students playing great-sounding pop, blues, classical and accompaniment pieces - immediately - from their very first lessons. Please visit www.simplymusic.com for more information about this wonderful playing-based approach to learning the piano!

Traditional lessons, for the most part, require that students first learn to read music as the means of learning how to play. This ‘read first, play later’ approach is slow and frustrating, and far too many students never acquire the ability to play. In fact, many lose their desire to learn altogether. The Simply Music approach allows students to be able to play songs from the first lesson. Our studio adds to a student's growth through the Simply Music levels with the instructor's knowledge from Berklee College of Music.

As students progress with Patten Music, they will learn to play a variety of musical genres, including Blues and Jazz. Students will also have a working knowledge of music theory. Many of our students go on to successfully play with their church bands and school orchestras. We look forward to equipping your student with a love of music that will last the rest of their life!
