The Music Mastery System was developed in collaboration with the highly skilled teaching staff at the Napa School of Music.
The Music Mastery System consists of a structured 30-minute private lesson that starts with a warm-up period, then goes into carefully selected exercises that improve technique and finishes with a musical piece that helps develop specific areas of musical expertise. A minimum of 15 minutes a day of focused practice at home is recommended.
