Bite-sized inspiration #6:

Music is a language.

Learn to speak it fluently, and you can communicate with people all over the world.

You’ll see his confidence grow.

You’ll see her eyes light up.

He’ll do family recitals for you at home.

She’ll run to the car giggling, with an ear-to-ear smile, to tell you all about it.

You’ll see how much he’s capable of, and best of all, you’ll see him realize that he is capable.

Hi, I’m Melissa!

That’s me over there, with my own daughter.

Early childhood music education is something I definitely care deeply about.

I’ve been teaching preschool-aged children since 2010. I love their enthusiasm, their curiosity, and their pure silliness.

Hi, I’m Melissa!

That’s me up there, with my own daughter.

Early childhood music education is something I definitely care deeply about.

I’ve been teaching preschool-aged children since 2010. I love their enthusiasm, their curiosity, and their pure silliness.

In my eight years of working with 3-5 year olds, I’ve learned some important things:

Keep moving!

Let me guess:

Your child loooooves to sit still.

Hahahaha, no, I’m kidding.

They’ll have years of sitting still in a chair ahead of them when they go to school.

But expecting them to sit on a piano bench for 30 minutes at this age? And still listen to what I have to say? That’s all wrong for this age.

Learn to play. Play to learn.

Learn to play. Play to learn.

You’ve heard it said a million times: children learn through play.

So what does that mean, in lessons?

It means learning rhythm through dance parties. It means card games and board games. It means singing about new concepts instead of lecturing about them.

It means embracing their boundless energy and engaging their imaginations.

Never underestimate children.

Never underestimate children.

Children have such incredible potential, and they are capable of so much, if only we don’t sell them short!

All children are inherently musical. Truly.

They are capable of so much more than many people realize. 

So keep moving, yes! Learn through play. But don’t think that means young kids aren’t capable of incredible things. They are. Being in the passenger seat as they realize their potential is a great gift and a privilege. 

I love toddler music classes. I used to teach one back in Indiana, and right now my own daughter does Music Together.

I also love private lessons. I get to know my piano kiddos from the time they’re six or seven years old, and I get to watch them grow. It is such a privilege to get to nurture them into confident, capable musicians.

BUT…for the longest time, I had no good solution for that in-between time. What do I tell a kid who is clearly not old enough for the structure of traditional lessons, but they’ve kind of aged out of their baby/toddler class?

“KiddyKeys empowered my children to glide effortlessly into playing and thoroughly enjoying piano by age five. It exposes young children to music theory in such a way that it becomes second nature to them, and after they leave the program, learning even more sophisticated music theory continues to be fun, hence easy.”

Missy

Mother of Liam and Colin

“My mind was blown that there is a program that teaches my 3-year-old music in a way he can understand. The entire curriculum, the books, the songs, everything greatly exceeded my expectations.”

Tori

Mother of a KiddyKeys star

“KiddyKeys is an ideal program to introduce or further your child’s exposure to music and the beginning concepts of piano in an enthusiastic and nurturing way. It encourages self-worth and achievement, while incorporating movement, coordination, and hands-on participation through the use of senses in a fun atmosphere. The curriculum absolutely lends itself to enthusiastic learning. What a great gift to give the young children in our lives!”

Madeline

Mother of a 4 year old KiddyKeys student

“KiddyKeys has been amazing for my son. His self-confidence is built up each week by the passion and compassion of the instructor. Besides teaching early music terms and love for music, the curriculum and instructors carry through life lessons taught at home. KiddyKeys is a safe and fun environment. Smiles and laughter are so important to capture a child’s attention and both are seen and heard at every drop-off and pick-up. KiddyKeys is truly one of the best programs that my child has been involved with.”
