The MAKCplus program is a Beta program that will have emphasis on training students to perform and create, and at the same time to foster an understanding of music within a broader context of history, culture and tradition. We will provide instruction at the highest professional level, providing students with the opportunity for success and lifelong appreciation of music and its connection to the other arts. With programs for individual lessons, group instruction and online tutoring, we welcome our students to learn and create in a warm, family-like atmosphere.
Beta version will include:
-Performance Classes (30-min; 45-min; and 60-min. lessons):
Program will be based on a curriculum of Russian School of Piano Playing combined with programs of world-renowned American schools, such as Interlochen Young Artist Academy, Curtis Institute and Oberlin Academy.
-Musical Escapades (15-week / 45-min. group classes):
This highly unique and integrated course offers instruction in the areas of music history, solfege (sight singing), listening (repertory), and music theory starting from the most basic level and going all the way up to pre-college preparation. Two levels will be offered in the Fall 2021 semester; and the placement exam will determine in which level a student will be placed. Students will learn the skills needed to be well- rounded musicians by virtually surveying the entirety of Western Classical music from its inception to the classics of Bach, Beethoven, and Brahms, to the modern trends of today’s music, and everything in between. In Musical Escapades students will explore the music of different countries and periods, play games, and bring their understanding and love of music to a level that far exceeds that which can be learned through instrumental lessons. This course is a compulsory part of all MAKCplus students’ education.
Every year we have been fortunate enough to be able to invite a Master Artist to come and teach at our Academy. With the start of this program, only student of MAKCplus program will be eligible to participate in these events.
-Competition and Audition Prep
We are committed to nurturing your competitive side! Participating in competitions does not always mean winning. It is about making connections, getting your name out there and being seen by other professionals. Much like sport scouts, musical judges are often famous pedagogues in prestigious schools and are always looking for talent. We are here to prepare our students on a highest level and help you be in a right place at the right time.
-Public Performance Opportunities
We believe that success is achieved with hard work and a lot of practice. How do you gain experience being comfortable on stage? The answer is – practicing getting out there and performing. We are at Music Academy are eager to help our students succeed in their musical ventures by providing those opportunities within and outside of the Academy.
Parent/Faculty and Placement Meeting
We are very excited about starting MAKCplus, and we determined for it to succeed. If you agree to sign up for the program, you will be invited to a parent faculty meeting where you could voice your suggestions and help us improve the vision for this program.
Also, during the meeting we will conduct a placement exam, to determine in which level of Musical Escapades your child will be placed.
