Instruction on piano, organ, or keyboard is given 5 days a week in the studio located in Central Phoenix Children must be able to count, know their ABC's, and basic colors. " I don't believe there is an "ideal" age, each child is different.  However, parents must realize that the younger the child, the less the attention span.  Patience is the key with small children.

Each adult student should commit a year to learning the piano.  There are basic skills, as well as improvisational skills that must be accomplished in the learning process.  Parents must make a decision to keep their children in piano, as long as progress is being made, regardless of the mood of the child.

Kenny interviews  parents and discuss the progress of the child on a regular basis.

Becoming a musician is fun and rewarding, but remember when you see those pianists play, what seems like effortlessly, there has been countless numbers of hours of practice.

The old adage is still  true   "PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT"

Piano Instruction
Kenny began teaching piano at the age of 15, and has been teaching for 50 years. He has taught approximately 1,000 children and adults to express the music within on keyboard instruments. He is often surprised to discover, upon enrolling a new student, that he taught their grandparent(s) piano!! His method is traditional, however affirming and encouraging talent to be expressed.
