Our Methods
We use a relatively new method called, “Piano Pronto”. The method books provide an exciting and rewarding approach to learning the piano. The materials are all age and gender neutral and written in a recital-ready contemporary style.

Jennifer Eklund developed this method. Ms. Eklund is a graduate of California State University Long Beach where she achieved a Bachelors Degree. She later returned to the same school and earned a Masters Degree in Musicology.

The Suzuki method is an internationally known music curriculum and teaching philosophy dating from the mid-20th century, created by Japanese violinist and pedagogue Shinichi Suzuki (1898–1998).

The method aims to create an environment for learning music, which parallels the linguistic environment of acquiring a native language. Suzuki believed that this environment would also help to foster good moral character.
