We're in business to spread happiness through music
Whether you perform live, for yourself, are just starting your musical education, or are an avid listener, we all can agree that music is an essential part of life. We strive for all students of different levels and areas of our community to apply the concepts they learn in music education- perseverance, setting goals, and being confident, to all aspects of their daily lives.
At Tiffany Music Academy we believe that everyone should have equal access to a great musical education. Our outreach program, Music in the Classroom enables us to reach students in schools who otherwise would not have access to music education.
Music has been shown to be therapeutic during stressful times. By partnering with Kaiser Hospital we are able to contribute a little peace of mind to the people in our community who need it most.
Music in the Classroom
Giving music to those without
We frequently get asked, "What's the best age to start lessons?" Our response has been, "ages 5 or 6." So why is it that these formative years are overlooked for music ed in school? The simple answer is art and music are always the first programs on the chopping block when budgets are cut. Who can blame them when most schools can't afford to have a school nurse on staff.
Most public schools do not offer music classes and none offer music classes to students K-2. Upon realizing this we decided to give these students the opportunity to learn and perform!
For our program, Music In The Classroom, we introduce student K-2 to music, rhythms, beats, pitches and more. Student’s take a way so much more than an understanding of a few basic musical ideas. They learn how to collaborate, motivate and stimulate their minds!
Our instructors explain the different elements of the guitar, piano, and percussion instruments. All students are invited to take a turn and play each instrument. We encourage students to perform and guide them while playing and singing together as they jam as a band. Within minutes everyone is rocking' out!
Music at Kaiser Hospital
Relaxing the mind and body through trying times
We believe everyone should be offered the opportunity to take a moment and just breath. Coping with daily stressors, busy schedules, and pressure from the work day can be over whelming. That's why we have joined forces with Kaiser Hospital to offer a little r&r. We provide hours of entertainment out on the patio for patients, vendors, family, friends, and doctors.
Our teachers perform anything from pop hits to jazz classics, providing a much needed respite during stressful times. We've talked with patients who stop by for a listen right before heading into surgery and doctors who take a break to decompress with music!
Nothing warms our hearts more than reading the Thank Yous!
