Students use a songbook with a CD and fun pages. Parent Performance Days are scheduled throughout the year and the teacher will assess the student’s progress and recommend private lessons at the appropriate time. Students bring their ukulele to class.   This is a great class for a young learner that may not be quite ready for a bigger instrument like a guitar! Congratulations Jay Kurian! He was our lucky To: Frisco School of Music From: Jay Kurian The Frisco School of Music is a great experience.  I'm living proof of it, considering I've been here 5 years.  In those 5 years I've had several teachers, and they all had the same thing in common. Every teacher was compassionate and wanted me to excel in music.  No teacher of mine was ever strict or apathetic.  They were all laid-back and helpful by telling you new ways to improve your playing, and good at teaching you new techniques.  My guitar lessons have effected my life in many other ways than just teaching me how to play guitar.  Music is a great art that has helped my confidence.  These lessons also helped me play the violin with much ease, establish  a practice regimen, and become exposed to more music.  I also have a greater appreciation for music and started listening to it more. Lessons aren't just boring book work. Playing an instrument is actual fun and can get you involved in more things like a band, or school music program.  Teachers here could teach you some of your favorite tunes.  My teacher is very good at both teaching and jamming on his guitar, and can teach and explain anything I need to learn with  Lessons also let you get more attention and help due to the low student to teacher ratio.  He is excellent at music theory and teaching me how to play famous songs.  The staff here is very friendly and the school even has good free Wi-Fi.  I was here back when the school was called "Music Conservatory of Texas" and although the appearance and name of this place has changed, the quality and over all appeal of the institute remains great.        I don't think I'll be leaving soon, now that I think about it.  All in all, the Frisco School of Music has been a pleasure, and I'll never regret coming here almost every week.   Who knows, you could end up winning a free iPad.
