Do you want your child to love music and enjoy learning to play the piano? Not only is it possible, but we see it every week! 

Piano lessons don't have to be boring and parents don't have to worry about whether or not their child will like lessons or if home practice will be a battle.

Kids are playing songs from the very first lesson. Every week your child will learn to play new songs and leave the lesson already knowing how to play and practice them. 

Hands-on, game-based learning, engaging materials, and learning to play and enjoy a lot of music at the piano are the secrets to your child's success! 


Musikgarten Piano & Musicianship Class Level 1 & 2 ( 6+ Years )
Fall classes for new students are forming now!
Holistic, fun approach to learning about music and piano prepares your child for success not just at the piano, but for any instrument and future music experience.  

 

Music Makers at the Piano is a comprehensive music course designed to introduce children to the keyboard and develop musicianship. Students learn to play the piano and read music with fluency in small group classes. Through our multi-sensory approach, students learn about music through singing, whole body movement, rhythm games, hand drumming, duets, ensemble work, improvisation, dictation, and composition.   

Students leave their weekly lessons having already learned their new songs and the most effective ways to practice them! 
Kids make quick progress and are excited to share their new skills and accomplishments with their piano friends and family.
