Why Johnson Music?
Tailored Musical Learning:
Every student has their own way of learning, and at Johnson Music we take that into account. We cater to each student’s needs and wants with their lessons, whether is working on a single bar of music or covering an entire piece in one go. Students are encouraged to learn a variety of pieces they’re interested in, as well as learning scales and arpeggios to AMEB exam pieces. Gamified learning is employed, with special consideration of the student’s hobbies.
