Create Musical Stories – On the Piano!
Play Musical Games

Combine Music with Art
Begin your child’s piano journey with this magical, creative, developmentally appropriate play-based music program. In my piano class for children ages 3-6, we combine piano and music with art, story-telling, movement, and games.
Practice is not required between lessons!! Forced practice at an early age can kill a child’s natural curiosity and joy in music. But playing on the piano at home is encouraged! Keep it playful and fun. 🙂
Will students be learning how to play the piano? Yes! Children will be playing music on the piano, learning their way around the piano keyboard (learning the musical alphabet and keys on the piano), playing using dynamics (playing musically, with emotion – highs/lows, loudly/softly, quickly/slowly), and developing rhythm (the math of music), while being exposed to different genres of music (traditional, classical, blues, jazz, and pop). Children will be excellently prepared to enter either my Simply Music Piano classes or traditional piano lessons with another teacher!
Two student minimum per class, so if interested, tell a friend! New classes launch whenever there is an opening in my studio, so, if interested, please join my waiting list!

Classes incorporate methodology from InnerMusician’s creative Play-a-Story program, the playful KiddyKeys® preschool piano program, and fun, engaging games from WunderKeys.
