Talentz Music Institute (TMI) is an innovative learning center for music and creativity located in Muscat Oman. We began welcoming students since April 2002, as part of our quest to educate and build confidence of music lovers. Students can choose to prepare for internationally recognized examinations offered by The Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM) or RSL Awards (RockSchool) of London, UK.

FAQS (FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS)

(Q) When do you need an instrument?
(A) When a student begins to learn music!

(Q) Where do you find your instruments & how do you get your best price?
(A) Talentz has a full line of standard instruments, many of which are used in classrooms at TMI. All enrolled students are eligible for an additional discount on most instruments and products. A beginner student does not need the top-of-the-line instrument; however, a poor quality instrument must be avoided to help maintain a student’s interest and desire to pursue music. Teachers can offer recommendations and will be happy to give guidance in the selection process. To guarantee your savings, be a member of the TMI family.

(Q) Any tips for parents?
(A) Kids are interested in everything; It’s up to you to help your child narrow his focus and concentrate on pursuits that will be rewarding.

(Q) What is the difference between Piano Lessons and Keyboard Lessons?
(A) First, we should understand the general difference between the two instruments: Piano & Keyboard. A Piano is typically considered as an acoustic instrument (under string/percussion family) with weighted keys whereas a Keyboard is an electronic instrument with un-weighted keys and electronic sound source; and offers opportunities to play along with backing tracks. Each has their own unique benefits. For quick reference, when you think of “Piano”, you can think of Bach, Beethoven, Mozart and other classical musicians. And when you think of Keyboard, you can think of one-man bands, pop artists etc. The details are much more nuanced and our instructors can help you find what’s best suited for you.

Under “Keyboard Lessons” students are taught to play the Right-Hand melody while the Left-Hand plays chords (one-finger or three-finger chords). This is played with accompaniment (rhythm / styles) from the keyboard. At TMI, modern contemporary music is taught through Keyboard lessons.

However, under “Piano Lessons” students are taught to play notes separately in each hand; which are then combined to form a piece. At TMI, classical music is taught through Piano lessons.

(Q) What is a good guitar for a student to begin learning?
(A) Generally speaking, there are three broad categories of guitars: Classical Guitar (Nylon String), Acoustic Guitar (Steel String), and Electric Guitar. Our sales specialists at Talentz Music Store and TMI teaching staff would be glad to assist you choose the one for you.
These guitars are vastly different from each other in appearance and also in the sound produced. Nylon String Guitars are typically used for Classical music, while Steel String Guitars are typically used for pop, folk, country, contemporary music and other similar genres. Electric Guitars are typically used in various genres including rock, metal, pop, country etc. Normally, young beginners find it easy to begin with a junior sized Nylon String Guitar due to the ease in playing the strings. They may switch to Steel String Guitars at a later stage.
As you grow in your musical journey, you will realize it is not uncommon to own each type of these guitars (and all the guitar types in between too)! There’s a whole world out there of guitars and accessories!

We wish you all the best in your musical journey and we look forward to seeing you make great strides!
