Here at Ignite Arts Academy we run the Simply Music keyboard programme. Simply Music is the largest playing-based music education institution in the world. We are a worldwide organization of more than 700 dedicated Teachers offering innovative programs, from birth through the whole of life, promising a World where Everyone Plays.Simply Music Piano is a remarkable, Australian-developed piano and keyboard program that offers a breakthrough in music education. This unique method has children, teens, adults and seniors playing great sounding blues, classical, contemporary and accompaniment piano pieces – from their very first lessons. In the same way that we all learn to talk before we learn to read, Simply Music Piano temporarily delays music reading and introduces a revolutionary, 'playing-based' methodology. This remarkably natural approach to learning music introduces students to an array of unique concepts that unfold directly onto the keyboard. 

Fundamental Goal: The Simply Music Method is designed to maximize the likelihood of students acquiring and retaining music as a lifelong companion. Specific Goals: Our aim is for students to:Experience their musicianship as a natural self-expression.

Play a vast repertoire covering a broad array of musical styles and genres.
Develop the ability to self-generate. i.e. the ability to progress independently. This includes developing a foundation of music reading, writing, composition, improvisation, arrangement, structure and theory etc.

vocal (singing) lessons

DAYS: Monday's, Wednesday's
TIME: Contact us for available times
TEACHERS: Micaela Collecutt
AGES: 7 YRS - Adults
PRICE: $17 per lesson (Shared), $27 per lesson (Private)

Offering contemporary vocal classes for all age groups. Our approach is to provide a well rounded vocal education utilising several methods to achieve this goal...

Group voice lessons offer an excellent introduction to vocal study. Group lessons are not just for beginners. Classes include exercises that help to develop a healthy vocal technique, expand range, build power, control, and over time, a beautiful singing tone. Students also learn songs and sing them together, and as they become comfortable, they are encouraged to sing individually in front of the group. Group lessons provide an opportunity for singing in front of other people on a regular basis, building performance skills, and gaining confidence as a performer. This is particularly beneficial for long-term students who have already developed some vocal technique and want to go the next step as a singer. All singers will benefit from working on exercises, learning songs, and developing performance skills through group lessons.

Individual voice lessons are advisable for students with extended vocal goals, or specific technical isues. The focus will be on individual technique and development.

Fundamentals will give the student a good understanding in basic theory, rhythm training and aural development.
