About

Jim is a great teacher with a very pleasant teaching style. I took piano lessons as a kid (forced by parents) and hesitantly decided to pick things back up as an adult. I'm in my 9th week. Jim is very patient and understanding of those hectic work weeks when there's not a lot of practice time in between lessons. We go at my own pace with no pressure to be perfect each week (I got that a lot as a kid) and I'm getting a lot out of each weekly lesson. I look forward to practicing on my own at home because the music selections are fun and well-known. I also think he's very reasonably priced too given his extensive musical background. It's a real bargain!

My daughter has been taking singing lessons on and off with Priscilla for the last 8 years since she was 5 years old. Priscilla is amazing, she's very talented, patient, easy to work with and affordable. We have worked on and off because of the phases and lack of seriousness that my daughter has went through in stages since she was so young however she works extremely well with Priscilla and she has learned so much! We are looking forward to taking writing sessions and keyboard lessons with Priscilla as well!

My son, Austin, has been going to piano lessons for over 10 years. We recently switched to Reisinger and are very pleased with the results! Carolyn has taught my son quite a bit in just 6 months and is helping him get ready for college! I would recommend her for any level of lessons.

About

Brian Lenz is a fabulous piano teacher. He inspires both of my kids, encouraging them to write their own songs and sing along. In contrast to the painful piano lesson experience I remember from my childhood, I hear giggling and creative joy from the basement when he is here. My six year old says "My piano lessons are AWESOME. He's really funny too." My eight year old agrees "Piano lessons with Mr. Lenz are GREAT! He's the best piano teacher; he is very nice and makes piano lessons fun!" I highly recommend Brian Lenz. We can't wait to add guitar soon!

Lynn has been giving my daughter piano lessons for over 4 years and I have found her to be a caring and passionate instructor, who has a gift to share as a music instructor. Her gentle yet consistent approach has provided a lot of instruction for my daughter and she has been able to correct some bad habits developed during her time with other instructors.

I've been taking first voice lessons and now piano lessons with Joe Clegg (part of Sara's team). It's been fun and very rewarding. Joe explains well what and how I can improve, and I have noticed a lot of progress.

About

Our daughter, who is 9, is in her second year with Mellisa Weinert. We couldn't be more pleased! After starting lessons with Mellisa, our daughter has flourished musically and personally. The most amazing thing is that she goes to the piano herself to practice without any pushing or persuading! Through Mellisa, she has learned to love the piano and learned the value of a continuous, persistent work to reach a goal. Mellisa does this, in part, by motivating her pupils through fun activities / contests, etc. so that the practicing doesn't feel like a chore but something fun to do (yet with specific goals to achieve). Mellisa is very professional and, at the same time, a very warm and encouraging person. She also makes an effort to relate to a child within the child's psychological framework, tailoring the assignments and learning levels. Mellisa shares her enthusiasm for music with our child but with us as well! We couldn't be more pleased!

About

My 12 & 15 year old sons took beginner guitar lessons with Rachel. I was impressed with what they learned and the price could not have been better. They were motivated and looked forward to their lessons. I liked how she set up the schedule in the beginning of the summer and provided options for any of our normal days that wouldn't work. I wish I had also signed another of my kids up for piano. I chose Rachel because the price was right and I wanted to gauge their interest levels. We will return to Rachel because the price is good AND she's a good music instructor who kept the kids motivated.

About

We are now in Minnetonka near Highway 7 and 101. Music Moves for Piano is a new piano series that builds on Orff, Kodaly, Suzuki, and Dalcroze and applies Edwin E. Gordon's music learning theory into the teaching of piano. "Music learning theory" is the same as Gordon's "theories of audiation" and is a sequential learning process that guides students how to hear music with understanding. The music learning process is similar to the language learning model of listen, speak/perform, think/improvise, read, and write. The purpose is to help students learn how to audiate and how to play the piano. The method provides a solid foundation for developing music literacy. Music Moves for Piano level 1 is for ages 6 and up. Each lesson is a unit which includes: - Lesson time objectives. This overview of the lesson communicates to parents and students what was covered at the lesson and lists home practice and listening assignments. - Song to sing. Class activities familiarize students with the 'songs to sing' through movement and singing, since they will be performance pieces later. Students learn that if they can sing it, they can play it. - Improvisation projects. Many beginning unit pages include short improvisation or creative projects. - Performance piece(s) and/or scales, cadences, and arpgeggios. Keyboard Games are for ages 4-6. Keyboard games is great for transitioning children, kindergarten, and other beginners. - The game-like pieces are short, in contrasting character, and in both duple and triple meters. Students become acquainted with the full range of the keyboard. Many pieces have duet parts. - Students learn proper alignment of the playing mechanism. Students are encouraged to be aware of how they produce sound. - Improvisation activities are an integral part of the book. Students learn to choose register, dynamics, and meter. They also write stories for which they create short, descriptive pieces. All piano classes are group-based instruction. Research has proven that children, especially beginners, learn much from each other, and they have tons more fun as well! Class sizes are from 2-5 children for "music moves and keyboard games." "Music play early childhood music program" is for ages birth through 4 years old. The locations are in Chanhassen and Minnetonka. Music development begins at birth, if not in utero. Young children learn music by listening to and playing with sounds and movements that are provided and encouraged by the adults in their lives. The goal is to help children enhance their music aptitudes through listening, singing, chanting, and moving with others. "Music play" is a great preparation for later instrumental or vocal instruction. The curriculum is based on the research of renowned music educator Dr. Edwin E. Gordon. His music learning theory (see the GIML website) explains how we learn to understand and think in music through audiation, like thinking in language. For homeschool groups: As a licensed music educator, I can tailor a music education program for any age group, which includes children or youth choir, beginning band and instrumental instruction, and general music. The curriculum is developmentally appropriate and sequentially based on "Gordon's music learning theory." Please do not call if you are looking for a director for a children's musical.
