Lessons and Courses of Study

Keeping to an International Standard

Director of Programs

Dear Faculty, Students and Parents,

At Resonance School of Music we believe in delivering our best in terms of programs, curriculum and facilities to our students, this is why we teach to a national standard. Our faculty teach to the syllabi of the Royal Conservatory of Music. (RCM)

The Royal Conservatory of Music is one of the largest and most respected music education institutions in the world, providing the standard of excellence in curriculum design, assessment, performance training, teacher certification, and arts-based social programs.

We believe in and endorse this course of study and the mission of the Royal Conservatory in the development of human potential through the leadership of the arts. This is why we strive to help to inspire our students to create a more fulfilled life and to prosper in our communities with the help of music.

Musically Yours,

Vince Gattinella

Private Lessons

Our In Studio Music Curriculums

Private Lesson Curriculum

All our private lesson programs at Resonance School of Music are taught by teachers that are conservatory trained professionals. Our teachers are not only active in their disciplines, but are continuing to elevate their own education. Resonance School of Music provides our instructors with avenues to continue refining their skills and access to the best possible equipment and resources to train our students. 

Pedagogy Syllabi 

Private music lessons are taught to the standards of the Royal Conservatory of Music. Students are evaluated on levels 1 to 10 in the areas of Technique, Music Theory, and Repertoire. Our teacher’s use this resource to design personal curriculum’s for each individual student in our programs. Copies of these syllabi are available to our students at all of our studio location for reference. 

Student Levels

Student levels are given to each of our students at the beginning of their musical journey. This helps our teachers to evaluate students before we start. This is usually first done during the trial lessons. Once you start, levels are reconfigured for each student after each recital.  Our teachers average the level scores in each area to assign an overall score for musicianship. For example; if a student has a repertoire score of 5, a technique score of 7, and a music theory score of 6. Our studio will assign that student an overall score of 6. In order to up that score, the lowest score would need to be brought up first.

Conservatory Programs

Music Performance and Music Composition Achievements

Music Composition Achievement

Resonance School of Music offers students the ability to achieve a certificate in Music Theory and Composition with us. This certificate program is available for students as a pre-college course of study. Students can work towards the completion of this course of study both in the studio, online or a combination of both. Students are eligible to start taking the courses from ages 13 and up. This is a certificate designed to properly prepare you for college auditions and portfolio development for Music Composition/ Music Theory degree programs. 

These courses are ongoing but students must first sign up with the Resonance School of Music in order to officially start the program. There are no registration fees in order to become a conservatory student, however, there will be a $100.00 fee to submit your application for completion.

This is a college preparatory program designed to train our students and develop audition repertoire. Students are encouraged to also take part in our Music Theory and Composition Achievement programming.
