If you are a total beginner or if you've had previous music study and want to refresh your skills, you're at the right place. I believe that everyone can and should make music a lifelong companion. You can learn to play the Piano, recorder, and singing in the Phoenix, Paradise Valley, Peoria and Sun City, AZ areas. I also teach piano and recorder instruction online anywhere in the world.

I'm Terry Smith, founder of Applegate Music Studio and I've been teaching music to children, teens, and adults for more than 14 years. I use the latest methods to make learning interactive and give students an enjoyable experience.

Especially with beginning students, I'm not concerned that all my students become concert pianists but I do want to make the learning experience a positive one. Learning a musical instrument (including singing) can boost a sense of achievement and confidence not duplicated in other pursuits. It can improve social skills, academic abilities, and provide a creative outlet that will stay with them throughout their life. It also teaches us how to manage a long-term relationship with something which can be applied to any profession or endeavor.

In order to gain the benefits of music, I focus on the following competencies in lessons:

  • Technique
  • Musicianship
  • Musical Literacy
