Are you excited about music education for your child?
I am too! In fact, I strongly believe that music education is the right of every human being. I am so passionate about music education for the young child, that I want to make sure all parents get research based tools, activities, and success stories into their hands.
When you teach a child in their early years, when their minds and ears are primed to learn music they will "develop" musical talent. So, I hope you'll use these newsletters as a resource to begin a musical journey with your own child... let's begin!
Keep a steady beat & hear sounds!
Children must learn how to keep a steady beat before they can read musical rhythms. So, let's make some fun homemade musical instruments and teach them to keep a steady beat. You can also teach them to hear low and high sounds by playing instruments that make noise.
These 20 DIY music instrument crafts will be fun to make together and they will develop musical talent. It's a win-win.
Have you heard about this?
There's a new way of teaching music that looks different from the mainstream music lessons you, your parents, or your grandparents took. Instead of traditional piano lesson, your child can get complete musicianship classes. They do piano lessons, voice lessons, and theory lessons all in one! The results are these students become well-rounded complete musicians. A complete musician has a surprising array of powers.

Sharing student success!
It's SO exciting to watch children develop their musical talent that I want to share some of the magic they are learning in Let's Play Music classes this month:
4-6 year olds
I'm teaching voice lessons to my 1st year Red Balloons. I'm excited to see my students making progress with hearing and matching pitches. A few more years of this ear-training and they may all achieve perfect pitch.
5-7 year olds
This month, 2nd Year Green Turtles are loving to play the piano, and just learned to play a spooky Halloween song in the key of C minor.
6-8 year olds
3rd Year Purple Magic students are starting to transpose between the key of C and F this week.
Want a spot on my classes?
You're in luck! I'm currently enrolling 4-6 year olds right now for my 1st year class starting October 15th. If you would like to wait a year, I already have a waiting list for next fall and anticipate filling those classes completely. Email me if you are ready to grab a remaining spot on the list!
I am also enrolling for our Sound Beginnings program (2-4 year olds.) I will starting a new Black Spiders class also on October 15th. My current students and parents are getting more and more confident singing with a strong voice and matching the beats to music. Please contact me to see a full lesson video so you can see what we do in class each week!
