The Way it Should be

Music is a step-by-step developement of musical skills and knowledge, enjoyed in daily practice and rewarded by the experience of personal expression, beautiful sound, and social connectedness! The aim of weekly lessons at Michelle's Keys Studio is not just to learn a few nice pieces, but be unable to pick up anything new. Here you will learn the necessary tools and skills you need to be able to play independently and explore the musical world in your own way! Lessons are designed to be just the right weekly challenge to be learning something new, but never overwhelmed, and never bored!
