Private Lessons in Flute or Piano. Online lessons also available.
The Nguyen Music Studio is in the West San Jose area of California. Private
lessons on piano and flute for all ages are 40 or 60 minutes in length. Shorter
lessons may be recommended for very young students. There are fifteen lessons
per semester, making an average of three lessons per month. Informal student
recitals on non lesson weeks give students valuable experience in performing.
Other musical activities such as discussions of musical styles, solfegge and
improvisation may also be presented. Family and friends may attend the two more formal recitals
in December and May. Online Video Recorded "Virtual" Recitals are also available.
Students may participate in Music Lab activities for 15 or 20 minutes before or after
the lesson for a nominal fee. Lab activities include general music enrichment, theory
and ear training and guided practice activities using computer or iPad apps. The
Second Instrument Lab allows students the opportunity to try another instrument
such as guitar, recorder, lever harp, violin, cello, or electronic drum set.
A Studio Recital Video Recording is produced at the end of each year with a recording of each student
and made available to students on this site.
A training program to prepare for the Music Theory AP Exam using lesson and lab
time is an option for advanced students.
Students may choose to participate in the Music Teachers' Association of California
(MTAC) Certificate of Merit program. This involves a performance evaluation and
theory and ear training exam. A special MTAC Certificate is awarded upon successfully
completing the requirements for each level.
