Welcome to Music Lessons by Kristen Music Studio. The studio has been in business in Carmel Valley, San Diego for 5 years, and has just recently expanded to Clairemont, San Diego.
Currently the studio offers private voice lessons, piano lessons, and theory tutoring.
Group lessons are also included in the studio program for voice and piano students. Each group meets one time a month to share their musical knowledge, collaborate musically, learn new musical concepts and give positive feedback. Building a community among the members of the studio is extremely beneficial to the student’s future musical career.
Goal oriented, individualized lesson plans are created for every student. This is because I believe that students should learn what they want to learn and have a blast doing it! For example, some vocal students are interested in learning more about harmony and music theory, while others are more interested in performing. Also, some piano students want to learn classical piano techniques and play classical music, while others want to learn vamping and sight reading so they can accompany singers- or even sing themselves. The lesson plans guide student practice between their weekly lessons. The lesson plans also help students advance in their instrument.
Each of these lesson plans follow a flexible curriculum that you can view under the “Curriculum maps” tab. The curriculum maps were created to guide students towards becoming well rounded musicians. For more information please visit the Blog Section of this website and search for the entry titled “Private Vocal Lessons: A Curriculum”.
I hope that you will enjoy the content on this website. Please contact me if you have any questions or would like to schedule a lesson!
