They love that
we match the teachers with their children based on personality, learning style, gender preference, music choices and location.
We are one of the only programs to teach young preschoolers. These are real piano lessons - not just clap along or sing along. Nor is it just playing a single note while the teacher or the band plays the rest of the song. Our students learn real music skills - only in a more organic, fun way.

We recommend all children start with at least 6 months of piano/keyboard. Because it is physically easier to produce sound, and is visually logically laid out, it builds a foundation quickly and makes comprehension faster. This makes transferring to ANY other instrument much quicker, enjoyable and understandable. However, for children above the age of 8 years old, it is possible to start on any instrument, though we highly recommend keyboard as a foundation.
and more to come
We accept kids from around 4 years of age, sometimes 3 1/2. It depends on these 4 things

4- Know the alphabet song? At least up to letter G?Can sit and focus on one activity for at least 5 minutes?

Because of our adaptive and inclusive curriculum, the Musicolor Method, we have been able to successfully work with many children with special needs including Autism Spectrum Disorder, Attention Deficit Disorder, Dyslexia, and slow learners.

We start with playing first using color as educational scaffolding. This builds instant excitement, enthusiasm and confidence to keep going when things get more complicated. Learning to read music is not going to happen overnight, in a week or even months. It can take years.
