Parents look for activities that support their children academically, socially and emotionally. Our student-centered curriculum makes learning an instrument fun with most students staying with us for years practicing essential skills for success in school, work and life.

A First Lesson for Piano – Video Clip

By on Apr 6, 2009 in Blog, Music Lesson | 1 comment

If you are currently taking lessons with me, you will know this as the Peanut Butter Sandwich or the Mississippi Hot Dog.

It’s a great first lesson for anyone studying the piano, regardless of age, as it builds finger strength, independence and gets your hands in the proper position.  So much of music is based on muscle memory.  So you may as well get it right from the start without all the bad habits that can lead to muscle fatigue or carpal tunnel syndrome or tendonitis.

  1. Hi,
    My son will turn 4 on March 16th. I would really like for him to play piano. He watched your video and loved your song. Please let me know if you teach kids young as my son.
