Learning to Play,
Playing to Learn
One of the most precious and magical gifts you can give your children and yourself is the gift of music! Music is a special gift that lasts a lifetime and speaks to all of us in the same beautiful language. We find ourselves calmed by it, excited or mystified.
It is a privilege to introduce your children to a piano music program designed specifically for young and eager music lovers. I believe that playing the piano, singing or learning about music beautifies the world, nourishes our souls and sharpens our mind.
I start teaching children to play piano with singing as early as 3½ years old and believe that no child should be left without music.
I encourage everyone to play piano and sing because, later in life you might say “I wish I had kept on taking piano, music lessons.”
The rewards are wonderful and last a lifetime for you and your children!
“Music is a higher revelation than all wisdom and philosophy”
-Ludwig Van Beethoven
“Music leads every change, for it is first in order and power before all learning”
(Greek writer on music, circa 200ACE)
