The mission statement of Music So Simple was an easy one to write! I knew that I wanted to keep it simple when it came to teaching music and having my own music studio. I also wanted to bring quality, traditional lessons and classes to the Richardson area. The mission statement reads:
“Music So Simple is a music studio in Richardson whose mission is to promote a love of music through traditional instruction. We make it easy to learn music with our patient and compassionate teachers. Music So Simple is committed to quality music education integrating proper technique, artistry, and musicianship.”
Why promote music?
For me, inspiring and teaching music to babies, children, teens, and adults comes so easily; it should hardly be called “work”! Of course music enriches all aspects of life, and one of the best parts about teaching is seeing first hand how it opens up a child. There is so much great research on music and the brain, so there’s no secret that it’s beneficial. It’s hard to find a reason NOT to start lessons if it’s fun, educational, and good for your brain!
Why traditional instruction?
Music So Simple promotes a well-rounded music program, including learning how to read music, developing proper technique, incorporating music theory into the lessons, playing with confidence and enjoyment, and learning how to perform. Traditional instruction allows us to touch upon all of those aspects in the easiest way for both students and teachers.
Why is the teacher important?
Who would you want your child spending time with alone every single week for (hopefully) many years? We want you to feel comfortable knowing that we are well-educated, compassionate, and patient with your child during lessons. We know you have many options when it comes to choosing your child’s educator, and we don’t take that lightly!
Quality? Aren’t all music teachers the same?
I wish they were! We all come from different backgrounds and educations. Just because one teacher is an amazing performer does not mean he/she is a great teacher! Teachers obviously need to know how to teach, how to be patient, and of course, enjoy teaching. This is not always easy to find!
Why incorporate technique, artistry, and musicianship?
There are teachers who incorporate some of these skills better than others, and some that don’t at all! We feel that all three of these skills are essential to learning any instrument, and are just as important as the notes on the page. Technique and artistry should be intertwined with the basics in order to establish a well-rounded musician.
So, there you go! Our mission in a nutshell! If you are looking for music promotion through traditional instruction AND caring qualified teachers who incorporate technique and artistry, look no further! :)
