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.
Outstanding Piano Instructors
Our piano instructors are trained intensively in the Piano Play system for four to six months. This program is a hands-on training in the classroom with another master instructor. 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.
Additionally, our quality instructors are prepared to work with special needs situations with adaptive lessons. We have a staff psychologist who keeps us on the leading edge of psychological research in music as it relates to the wellbeing of children and their education.
