Our Background

We currently operate Musical Minds classes in more than a hundred schools in Southern California, Washington State and Texas, both public and private. Our unique piano method employs specially developed visual tools which teach our students to read music notation very quickly. Ear training skills are also developed, and students have fun as they learn. They have the opportunity to select popular songs to learn to play, such as radio hits, movie themes and television themes. The course combines piano lessons with learning games and activities, in order to teach music theory, as well as piano technique. This approach makes the process of music education very enjoyable for the students, and their level of enthusiasm remains high, unlike many traditional approaches, which often serve to de-motivate the young music student.

Our Passion

We are strong believers that everyone should be able to have a life of music. That's why we have teachers that believe in teaching kids with an intent to create a love and passion for music in their lives. 

Our piano keyboard club is a music class taught on keyboards.  The layout of the keyboard is very similar to a piano, but there are more bells and whistles with a keyboard.  There are tones, such as violin, flute, drum, and strings, that allow the students to play their songs with various instrument sounds.  Our unique piano method employs specially developed visual tools which teach our students to read music notation very quickly.

Benefits

There are many studies that have been conducted by a number ofleading educational institutions, which show how the inclusion of music in children’s curriculum improves scholastic aptitude in such areas as mathematics and science. In the present day politics of less and less music and art in schools, we feel it is essential that students have the availability of quality after school programs to augment regular curriculum classes. I believe that you will find that The Musical Minds program is a wonderful compliment to music classes offered during the school day.
