"Music is a science that would have us laugh, sing and dance." - Guillaume de Mauchaut, 14th century
Music classes offered at the Ravenswood Academy vary. While piano is currently emphasized, studying with a qualified instructor in voice, composition, or even music theory and history are all options depending on student ability and circumstances.
Students can expect to be guided through how to read written music as well as how to use their ears to instinctively improvise. A student may arrive at the Ravenswood Academy knowing nothing about piano, but with enough hard work, achieve the experience of playing a Chopin Nocturne or a Bach Prelude.
