Programs tailored to you

WunderKeys - ages 3-5

Who knew piano lessons could be this fun? WunderKeys is an introductory program designed with the developmental needs of your preschooler in mind. Unlike the group music classes which are usually offered for three- and four-year-olds, WunderKeys' one-on-one format allows me to tailor lessons individually to your child. The early musical experiences that WunderKeys provides will help your child develop in every area of his or her life - socially, emotionally, intellectually, physically, and creatively!

For more information, check out my WunderKeys Teacher's Page.

PianoSafari - ages 5-12

Your child's creativity will shine with PianoSafari, a unique, evidence-based program which provides children the immediate gratification of playing fun, exciting music from the very first lesson. In contrast to traditional beginner methods which focus on note reading exclusively, PianoSafari's blend of note with rote learning frees your child to explore improvisation, technique, and artistry.
