Preparation for admission to Music Schools & Universities

Innovation and originality of AMS is the application of a pioneering educational method.
The problem with learning musical instruments and vocals is the difficulty that students face in perceiving music as they are trained. Studying music is really a long process for a student, not to learn to operate a musical instrument, but to be trained and to perform the musical colors and idioms of the musical pieces correctly, but also to understand his musical role among a musical group.
All music schools today in Greece offer services with similar characteristics. These services limit the learning of musical instruments, according to a common technique, which concerns the interaction between the student and the teacher.
The innovative educational method of AMS Music School, which is applied, concerns the combination of 2 services, the music school and the recording.
As part of the method, students are recorded in the digital professional studio of the school and then follows up a theoretical and musical analysis of the performed music pieces, in order to create educational material to print music learning books inspired by the students themselves.
The result of this method is the faster learning of music and the creation of artistic-musical perception.
