THE MANY BENEFITS OF BEGINNER xylophone LESSONS FOR CHILDREN, teens and adults!
There are many benefits in learning to play the xylophone. Similar to learning the other percussion instruments, xylophone lessons provide a strong foundation in building a constant sense of rhythm and creating dynamics. Studying the xylophone has been shown to increase cognitive abilities, enhance memory and improve hand-eye coordination.
The pattern on a xylophone is the same as on a piano, enabling those with a background in piano to learn to read musical notation for the xylophone more easily.
Offered as one-on-one private instruction, xylophone lessons help our youngest students realize a great sense of accomplishment as they learn and grow. As our xylophone players continue to study, they develop the strength, dexterity and independence of hands necessary to play their instrument. As a bonus benefit, many of the skills and techniques learned in playing xylophone can be translated to learning other percussion instruments such as drums, marimba and timpani as well as glockenspiel, chimes and bells.
Advanced XYLophone lessons for students of all ages!
Our advanced xylophonists explore many different mallet techniques and using four mallets instead of two. They also focus on learning dynamics and complex rhythms, while mastering more complicated pieces and/or new genres to add to their repertoire. Our instructors help our more advanced xylophone students in furthering their studies in theory and musicianship, preparing for an audition or performance, playing within a group, soloing, and improvisation.
