Layered Learning Environment (LLE)®

Many early childhood music programs mix widely varying ages. Our proprietary Layered Learning Environment (LLE)® uses a unique multidisciplinary teaching approach to building music skills combined with age-appropriate curriculum which successfully allows children to engage and develop skills in:

  • Ear training
  • Music theory
  • Note reading
  • Expressive singing
  • Rhythm understanding
  • Keyboard playing
  • Academic preparation

To foster this type of learning, we maintain small piano class sizes with a minimum of four and a maximum of eight students. Private instruction for piano lessons are also available for continuing students, older beginners and adults.

“The books are easy to follow, and classroom instruction is structured for the children.”

Outstanding Piano Instructors

Our esteemed instructors hold a minimum of two – three years of college level courses in music theory or performance, Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in Music.
