PHILOSOPHY

I regard the study of Piano an essential, as it develops the brain in a unique way to support learning in all areas of life & experience.  The skill of learning music through piano enhances your child's emotional and physical maturity.  The study of Piano provides a vehicle for self-expression, physical coordination, both of large & small motor skills.  The study of Piano brings brings to your child one of life's greatest miracles - the power of music as a means of communicating with others and understanding people across cultures and historical eras.  We learn a language which transcends the spoken word.
