Personalized Music Lessons at Oak Learners

Oak Learners is dedicated to inspiring minds through Arts Education and our Love of Music! We offer a supportive learning atmosphere, working with your child’s unique learning style to inspire their strengths and interests.

Private music lessons are available to learners of all ages from young to old in a variety of disciplines, including Piano, Guitar, Voice, Ukulele, Drums, Percussion and Composition. Students are placed with a teacher who is a professional in their field and who loves inspiring a love of music in their students. Our music lessons are unique and blend music theory with music that children will love to practice.

 

Subjects & Ages

Available for all Ages: Preschool through Adult.

Musical Specialties include:

Piano, Guitar, Ukulele, Vocal, Drums, Percussion, Composition, Musical Theatre, Early Years Music Experience

 

Scheduling

Private Music Lessons are booked in 30-min sessions, at a mutually convenient time that recurs on a weekly basis at the same day/time each week. A small buffer of time is set aside at the start and end of each session so that parents can check in and check out with the tutor. If you ever feel that you need or want more time to review your child’s progress with the tutor, please feel welcome to schedule this through our office so we can build it into the timetable.

Consistency is important! As educators and parents, we know that children do best with predictable timetables and positive relationships with their teachers. Therefore, committing to a full term, or a full school year of tutoring allows more time to strengthen the student-teacher relationship and to build on the progress of each term. A longer commitment also helps with teacher-retention rates and this means that we can also commit to maintaining your child’s regular session timing each week.

Fees

  • 12 Lessons – $432
  • 24 Lessons – $792
  • 36 Lessons – $1116

Sessions are purchased in bulk and pricing is based on the average session being 30 minutes. Session credits will be added to a student’s account and deducted after each lesson. Bulk pricing provides savings on lessons and ensures that you can keep your chosen date and time slot for as long as your lessons continue.

Outdoor Learning: Sound Walk Adventures!

Outdoor Learning: Sound Walk Adventures!

Summer is a great time to get outdoors and enjoy the sunny weather while we can! Children are constantly learning and there are many outdoor activities that allow them to have fun while engaging with the world around them. Although kids are naturally curious and can direct their own learning by exploring the outdoors and asking questions, there are many activities that family members can introduce and facilitate to encourage students to think outside the box. One way to do this is with a sound walk!

Travelling Around the World at Oak Learners Summer Camps!

Two weeks of Summer Camp just flew by! And we aren’t just saying that because we took a trip around the world! We learned about different cultures and their structures! We made art such as the Chinese Dragon, a Traditional African neckpiece & a Dasara Elephant craft! Our specialty campers learned all about Environmental science with our resident scientist, Richard! We learned about water pollution & experimented with storms in a jar!

Outdoor Learning at Oak Learners

Children need the opportunity to get up and move throughout the day rather than sitting at their desks for long periods of time, and Oak Learners can provide just that! Giving children the opportunity to be outside of the classroom environment is important as it allows them to be more open to learning and loving it. Incorporating outdoor learning could make the world of a difference for children and enhancing their learning.
