Advantages of Music Study


  • Music Study enhances fine motor control, use of symbol systems, following directions, concentration, memory, perseverance, visual and aural discrimination, organizational skills, task completion, and goal setting.

Music Study provides the solution to the following questions...


Adults... Have you always wanted to play the piano and thought it was too late to learn? 

Have you always figured music theory to be too far over your head to understand, much less find fascinating?


Parents... Are you looking for a fun way to introduce music into your child's life and reap the benefits science is promoting that music has on a child's development?


Teens... Have you just always wanted to play off of lead sheets and play all the popular songs everyone is singing?  Do you need coaching and/or accompaniment for a vocal or instrumental solo/ensemble competition?


Wanna-be Singers... Have you been shushed anytime you open your mouth to sing or been told that you are tone deaf?  

Let's shatter that myth and help you find your voice!


Join me!  Let's explore your musical interests together.
