Baltimore School of Music isn't like a traditional music school - we give you the flexibility needed to make music lessons a success. Since we don't operate on a semester schedule, you can start lessons anytime and you'll never be locked into a long-term contract. We even offer the ability to reschedule 4 lessons during the school year to accommodate busy schedules.
After your free trial lesson, you'll register for music lessons by filling out our one-page registration form. Registration secures the same day and time for your lesson each week with your teacher and enrolls you in automatic monthly billing. Music lessons are billed to a credit card on file on the 1st of each month based on the number of lessons occurring in that month. Students can stop lessons at the end of any month by submitting our online withdrawal form by the 15th.
All composition lessons are taught as private, one-on-one music instruction and are available in lengths of 30, 45, and 60 minutes. We suggest kids and teenagers begin with 30-minute piano lessons and progress to longer lengths as your teacher recommends. For students who have previous experience, we recommend starting with 45- or 60-minute lessons.
Because each student is unique in their aspirations, piano lesson plans are tailored to each student by taking their goals, experience, and learning pace into consideration.
For composition lessons, we recommend that students be at least 8 years old and take instrument or voice lessons for at least one year beforehand. Students focus on learning how to come up with compositional ideas, especially through improvisation, as well as on learning to notate and elaborate their ideas into pieces of music. Students also learn the basics of music theory, ear training, and music history.
TEENAGERS AND ADULTS
Lessons in music composition for teenagers and adults include learning different styles of composition throughout classical music history, as well as learning the styles that interest the student. Students learn how to notate music on paper and can also opt to learn music notation software. Helpful fundamentals of music theory and ear training are taught as needed, and the focus of lessons is balanced towards the student’s main interests.
