I tried learning guitar by myself for one month using learn-by-yourself books. In that time, I learned 2 chords by heart. (I am an adult student). After one month of lessons with Glen, I knew the 7 major chords (with alternate pickings on some) plus the minor chords. After four months of lessons, I impressed my family by finger-picking two songs and improvising with my dad. Glen listened to my goals and geared the lessons to that end. With his guidance, I know what to put my energy into and have learned how to maximize practice time. He pulls from his experience as an active musician plus his formal education from a well-known music college. His teaching encourages creativity and improvisation. Madeleine Arel-Davis

Message from Te Velde School Of Music

Our students learn to play faster, enjoy lessons more and stick with their instrument longer. This is because we custom-tailor each lesson to the student's learning style and personality. You and/or your child will be playing right from the start and will be set up to enjoy a lifetime of music.



Our teachers stand apart through their commitment to give each student a unique opportunity to experience the amazing effects that come with taking music lessons. Students come away with top-notch musical training, as well as increased confidence and self-esteem, enhanced brain and body function, and a greater appreciation for something we can all connect with - music.



We go through an exhausting screening process to find and train teachers who are musicians, not musicians who want to "teach" on the side. We also have Music Therapists on staff for working with children and adults that have learning disabilities and special needs.



All this is a testament to our mission here at teVelde School of Music. We use music to spread joy. Come have fun with us!



Mission Statement:



To help each student develop their unique musical talents in a way that motivates them to achieve their highest goals. We want our students to love music!

To make sure each student connects with their teacher, and have the most positive learning experience possible.

To make sure our teachers love to teach every student they are given!

To make sure that our students love to learn music from the first time they have a lesson at our school!

To insure that every teacher and every student has the support they need to achieve personal excellence!

To provide opportunities for brain development at every stage of life!

To teach teachers and students the process of setting and achieving goals.

To teach parents and teachers about the benefits of starting lessons as young as possible.

To teach parents how to support their children effectively at home.

To teach teachers how to help their students develop Perfect Absolute Pitch (AP).

To make the best musical education affordable.



Perfect Absolute Pitch: Our Greatest Mission



We consider our greatest contribution to every student and potential musician is the opportunity to work with us develop perfect absolute pitch (AP), or relative pitch recognition in every student. The teVelde School of Music specializes in helping students learn to hear "in color". It has long been thought that AP can only be taught before the age of 6, otherwise the ability is lost forever. We are breaking new ground by being able to teach AP to students of ANY AGE! Our teachers specialize in developing this ability in all of our students.
