Dea Music Studios came highly recommended by other parents in my daughter’s school, whose kids were already students here. I was also delighted to learn that the teachers are professionally trained in classical music. Upon enrollment of my kid, I was not aware that ‘Dea’ believes in teaching on acoustic instruments is the right way to learn. Yet after initial assessment and a discussion with the teacher, we saw the benefits of an acoustic instrument and purchased the appropriate instrument. I always believe that teachers need to be somewhat strict with their students, yet they need to make learning fun. ‘Dea’ provides both in their lessons, producing the best results. I see a big improvement in my daughter’s level of playing piano. She is much better technically and pays more attention to details. If I were to recommend the school’s service to a friend, I would describe the service as professional, knowledgeable, skillful and friendly.

From enrolling my three children at ‘Dea’, I have seen how the teachers expect great accomplishments from my children, and they don’t accept anything less. Our experience has made me understand that music and art education is an important outlet for a child’s expression that is sometimes not offered in other academic areas. I have seen my kids benefit largely from studying music at ‘Dea’. The school is very accommodating, especially when there is a conflict in our schedule between my kids’ lessons and their extracurricular activities. Secondly, performing in a recital is an important skill for any student, which builds their confidence and self esteem. Besides this, ‘Dea’ goes international! My kids will be taking advantage of a once-in-a-lifetime event by performing in London this summer! All in all, the school has provided good quality training to their students and I recommend their service to others.

I chose Dea Studio’s 4 years ago because I was looking for private lessons for my son who was interested in playing piano. Dea offered one-on-one lessons for young children with the concept of teaching them how to build musical ability by incorporating listening, demonstration, and repetition so that the child could work on the skills together. Another factor was that Dea was a professional teacher-owned music studio. As my son’s ability and commitment to his piano lessons grew through the years we transitioned from a keyboard at home to an Essex by Steinway. It was the next step in his progression of his music lessons to practice on an upright to further enhance his coordination and Dea was helpful in helping source an affordable option. We began lessons as an extra-curricular activity but they have since transformed into a part of my sons education and sense of self value. Music education is strengthening his overall learning and cognitive development. Some of biggest benefits of enrolling my son with Dea are: (1) he is applying his sight reading of music by noticing repetitive patterns and counting concept to other areas of his education (math and science), he is making connections from his music education to other parts of life, (2) he is learning that music is more than just playing a variety of notes, he is developing listening skills to recognize rhythms, and (3) his piano lessons have turned into voice lessons with Dea as his love of music expanded these last 4 years. Dea’s services are provided in a pleasant, respectful, and professional manner. All of the staff are helpful and make the children and parents feel welcome.

When choosing ‘Dea’, I was encouraged by their offer of a free trial lesson. This greatly helped to decide if my son was really interested in learning music. Since enrolling my child, I have developed a new appreciation for music. My son, who began piano in Pre-K before he could even read letters, is able to teach me to play piano, which is something I’ve always wanted to do! Besides this, I have noticed my son has higher self-esteem and more appreciation for music. This is thanks to the music studio, which has a very professional environment but also makes the lessons enjoyable for children.

The school is local and Mollie can learn with friends. The school has a good balance of learning and fun. In less than one year, my six year old has a new understanding of music. She can read music and play with both hands. Dea have a lovely team of teachers and provide a structured learning experience to help the children to progress together.
