The TCS Music Academy opened in 2012 to offer private music lessons to TCS students during daytime hours. The program currently accommodates up to 100 students, with 5 music teachers offering their expertise in piano, voice, guitar, bass guitar and drums during weekly lessons.
A student wait list is kept and updated for families who would like to participate in this program. Spaces fill up quickly, as in-school lessons are a much desired convenience for busy families. Due to high demand, we can offer only one lesson spot per student.
Each student receives weekly private instruction for a 30 minute lesson during their specified time. Students are expected to keep a regimen of daily home practice, and are encouraged to participate in performance opportunities throughout the year including recitals, in-school events, talent shows, etc.
Piano lessons include a wide range of styles and methods from beginner to RCM exam prep, theory, and also improvisation skills and popular styles of music.
Guitar lessons focus on beginner skills including tab reading, standard notation and chord charts for praise and worship and popular music. Bass lessons are also available.
Voice lessons are tailored for students who enjoy performing solo, including popular, musical theatre, praise and worship, learning harmonies and more.
Drum lessons will be offered in the large studio on select days.
All lessons are 25.00 per half hour and run weekly on the school calendar.
A REGISTRATION FEE of 10.00 per family is due to secure a child's spot on the schedule.
For 2016, we have two brand new teaching studios in the new "Arts Wing" of the school on the main level. Guitar students can store their instruments in the "Guitar Parking" zone on lesson days.
