About the school:
Music Vision Studios teachers are university trained and are active in teaching associations at both the national and state level; furthermore, they are engaged in bringing music to their communities.
M.V.S. Teachers offer instruction on a private basis such that it may be tailored to the needs of the individual student.
Our teachers encourage performance from most students such that they draw the maximum experience from their studies - both learning to pace their practicing to meet goals, and experiencing the joy of sharing their accomplishments with others. Moreover, we encourage competitive performance for those students of exceptional ability, with the aim to advance their academic and professional careers.
We are dedicated to providing instruction that promotes the highest potential of each student!
WHY WE LOVE MUSIC!
We believe music has immeasurable value and purpose in the world;
1) It serves the development of the individual - enhancing both physical and emotional growth - benefiting the neurological development of children AND adults; this has been demonstrated by numerous studies showing heightened reading & math grades in musical children, and lower Alzheimer disease risk in musical adults, as well as raising the individual's sense of self-worth and social skills at all ages.
2) Also, it serves to bring people together (not just families who support young musicians, but also disparate ages and varying socioeconomic groups) because participation in Community Outreach is an integral part of performance opportunities through M.V.S.
3) Finally, it serves the greater good by connecting the present to the past - allowing us to celebrate heritage and feel grounded in our culture.
At M.V.S. we wish to share the joy of music making at all levels, celebrating the excitement of overcoming one tiny challenge in a lesson all the way up to major achievements measured over the course of years of dedicated practicing! It is an honor to see our students grow up and to have the privilege of accompanying their lives through the musical journeys we share!
About the school:
The students of Music Vision Studios represent wide socioeconomic and cultural backgrounds, and range in age from 5-85 years old! We have beginners of all ages, as well as many adult students who return to serious music studies in mid-life after several years away building careers and families!
Many M.V.S. students perform competitively - performing at varied competitions, such as the Glendale and Cypress College Piano Competitions, S.Y.M.F. and the International Chicago Competition for Outstanding Amateurs. Our students have won accolades at the local, regional and state levels.
