Why Choose us?

Welcome to Natalie’s School of Performing Arts, where the journey to musical excellence begins with personalized guidance and passion-driven learning.  At our school, we offer private lessons in singing (voice), piano, violin, guitar, and trumpet. All Natalie’s SOPA private lesson instructors are proficient in ear training, harmonizing, improvisation and sight singing. The private music lesson curriculum offered by our school is tailored to fit the needs of every individual student. A family can opt to have their student learn at a relaxed pace, or ask for more rigorous preparation in anticipation of examinations, competitions, and or recitals. We handle the entire registration, submission, and support process for students every year, sending kids to participate in the Trinity College of London examinations and numerous other international music competitions which allow students the opportunity to perform at venues such as Carnegie Hall from a young age. Many of these programs offer college credits or letters of recommendation, something very desirable in our competitive community.

We also offer group classes in the hip hop, balletGeorgian folk, and Bollywood dance styles; while karate, another exciting performing art, has just begun to be offered at our school. Group classes provide an excellent social setting where students can interact with peers who share similar interests. Collaborative dance styles promote teamwork, communication, and a sense of camaraderie among participants. Dance and karate classes are excellent forms of physical exercise. Participants can enhance their flexibility, strength, and endurance while enjoying the rhythmic movements of dance or the disciplined techniques of karate, promoting overall well-being. Performing in a group setting also helps build confidence. Students gain self-assurance as they master dance routines or progress in their karate skills, contributing to a positive self-image.

We have built our curriculum for all age groups and levels. We offer a safe and productive learning environment for students, and we believe the study of performing arts and music offers the best pathway for self expression and personal achievement. It is our goal to provide the understanding and skills needed for each student to enjoy and appreciate their talent for a LIFETIME!
