Heywood Music Studios was founded in 1991 by Gail Heywood is to provide music lessons to students ages 4 to 84 in Rudolph and Stevens Point, Wisconsin. My real love is teaching quirky, bright kids who won’t make their living as musicians. My adult students include total beginners, avocational pianists who play at an advanced level, and piano teachers who want to improve their own playing… The adults have opportunities to perform for each other… in a low-key, friendly atmosphere. If you’re interested in taking lessons with me, click here to book an interview– I’d love to see if we’re the right fit.
Some of the things I offer to my students:
I have over thirty years experience in teaching music education.
I have been operating a studio in Stevens Point & Rudolph for over twenty years. In 2013 I opened up a virtual studio with online lessons via Skype!!!
My students have won many local and state music competitions.
I have the following credentials: nationally certified teacher of music (piano) from the Music Teachers National Association, General Music (EC-A) certification through the Wisconsin Department of Education and Basic Religion Education Certificate through the Diocese of LaCrosse.
I am a member of the WMTA, MTNA, Stevens Point Area MTA and the Chamber of Commerce.
I regularly attend workshops and clinics to stay current on the latest in the field of piano pedagogy.
I have an extensive music library (listening and music materials).
I provide students with recordings of repertoire and we record CDs twice a year.
Students have the opportunity to participate in two/three area recitals at no cost.
I offer a wide variety of student incentives to encourage regular practicing at home.
I provide my students with fun-filled learning experience and help them gain confidence to eventually become self-sufficient at their instrument.
I encourage my students to explore a wide variety of music (pop, jazz, improv, new age--whatever the student expresses a desire to learn!).
I treat each student as an individual and your lesson plan will be designed to fit your individual needs and desires. No two students are alike!
Gail's objective is to help every musician grow to their full potential and discover what makes them unique! It is my personal goal to provide the finest instruction for each of my students. I provide my students with a positive learning environment with multiple opportunities to explore, through composing, imitating, listening, hands-on, multi-media formats--all of these help the student achieve to their full potential. Knowing is a process~we will strive together to ENJOY the journey!
