About ABA Music Studio.
We are a home-based private studio that welcomes students from beginning to advanced levels. The program, designed by Ana Belen Abreu, focuses on the teaching of music through a carefully designed method that allows students obtain effective results in their area of concentration. There are specific methods for vocalists and instrumentalists. For every specialization the student is directed through assignments and procedures that insure the improvement of technique and styling abilities. Every session is combined with music theory, sight singing and ear training exercises that allow the student to understand how music works and to be able to apply this knowledge through their voice or instrument. For best results music theory courses are also offered as a separate subject.

The mission of A.B.A. Music Studio is to inspire students to learn by providing efficient methods to help them understand and execute music. Our program assists talented students and professionals to reach their highest musical achievements. It also encourages children and adults who have a passion for music and wish to learn how to sing or play an instrument. Our goal is to provide the necessary knowledge required to help students reach the best possible results. Music is an essential part of a well-rounded curriculum and complete education, and it clearly links to achievement in other subjects as well. The foundation of a creative, diverse and educated society starts with our children, today.
Private Lessons: Every lesson is a one-on-one experience that embraces all aspects of the instrument or voice (for singing lessons) and professor-student interaction to assure goal achievements. Private lessons must be scheduled at least once a week and can be 30 min or 60 min long.
Group Classes: (Groups of 2 students): Same as private lessons. But two students share lesson blocks of 60 min. Some of our groups of two classes are: “The Magic of Duets” for advanced students and “Passage to melody and rhythm” for beginners.
Larger Groups: These classes are offered upon request and it depends on demand for each specific service. Group classes consist of 4 or more students. Classes offered frequently are “Music Theory” and “Chamber Music” for beginners and advanced students. We also have a program called “Little Star” for 3-5 year old children.
