Students absorb information better when they receive it in a variety of ways. For example, students who hear information presented by a teacher in a classroom after reading it in a book are more likely to retain the information than students who only read the information in a book. Students who see pictures or demonstrations remember information better than those who only hear it in a lecture. And students who actively “do”, such as practicing a musical instrument, are more likely to retain what they’ve learned about playing the instrument than students who simply watch a teacher or someone else doing it.
“Because of the skills Rebekah has learned in theory lab she has been able to “teach” classmates in her 5th grade music class. Her music teacher is very impressed with her knowledge. I can’t say enough about how much I love this music school and I refer people whenever I can.” – Alisha N.
The Music Lab teacher is a music theory expert who will help you or your child master the lessons, quizzes, games, and assignments and monitor learning. Feel free to speak to your theory teacher to inquire about your child’s progress at any time, or review their electronic progress record online.
“Trin realizes now what that computer lab did for her now that she’s in High School choir and they get graded on reading notes!” – Jessica N.

“I have been a student at Michelle Tuesday Music School for a year and a half, even before it opened in the studio in Gahanna! I have advanced so far…I can only remember where I started, singing Beauty and the Beast and playing simple finger exercises to singing advanced musical theater and expanding my territory with pop and opera and playing Beethoven. I have been here so long, and I’ve loved every minute of it. I look at myself now compared to a year and a half ago and I am amazed by the advances I’ve made, not only in music but in theory. I love this place and my journey has only just started. I have so much more to learn and am so eager to advance, I love my teachers and look forward to the bright future in music they have promised me.” – Ashley F.
