An encouraging first experience in piano lessons is critical to your child’s future musical enjoyment. Every aspect of the WunderKeys program has been carefully designed and tested to create an engaged, constructive, positive, and FUN learning environment.
An all-encompassing piano lesson means that your preschool-aged child will participate in five different and unique activities during their weekly lesson time. This ensures that they remain focused, engaged, and happy.
The developmental abilities of 3-5 year olds are very different than that of 6 year olds and older…for which most other piano programs are created. There are many different concepts that your preschooler need to grasp before jumping into a “traditional” piano piece. Therefore, our preschool piano lessons are spent exploring the piano in ways in which they are capable of understanding.
All lessons are geared towards having them understand everything they will need to know before being able to read notated music. It is the perfect way to lead into a mainstream book series…and a life of musical enjoyment.
The WunderKeys program is specifically designed to be offered as a one-on-one lesson. For many preschoolers this is their first experience in a non-group setting. This arrangement allows the instructor to personalize the lessons to each individual child’s needs as well as ensuring that your child is an active participant for the entire lesson duration.
WunderKeys has been created with preschoolers’ needs in mind. They will not be expected to sit patiently at the piano bench for 30 minutes! We incorporate five different activities into each lesson to ensure your child is always focused, engaged, and active – each activity is designed to reinforce concepts learned in their books. Our priority is to ensure that your child is enjoying every single minute of their lessons!
After each lesson in the book is a home activity sheet that can be completed with your child during practice time at home. The books are designed to allow all parents to help with home practice, regardless of prior musical knowledge.
At this age “practicing” should be approximately 10-15 minutes every day and is spent reinforcing what was learned in the lesson, and building finger strength and coordination. The intent is for home practice to provide you with some “bonding on the bench” time with your child, sharing in the fun of music.
Piano lessons are thirty minutes in length weekly at a cost of $25. Please note that there is a yearly fee of $35, which covers the cost of your child’s WunderKeys books.
