At age 4, this little girl named Lillian, found the joy of creating her own music by enrolling in Violin and Piano Lessons.  She felt so valued and special by her instructor that it was easy to learn and move at her own pace.  She diligently worked on strengths and interests and soon learned that piano was her focus point.  Three years later, Lillian has completed 3.5 piano books and many solo books. She has excelled in building self-confidence, self-motivation, patience, self-expression, and a love for music like no other. She has performed in many concert and includes her mom in playing duets.  Week after week, Lillian attends her lessons super excited to learn more.  She LOVES her Piano teacher, Ms. Betz, and feels so special and cared about; just like family.  That's why we are here, to give Lillian a safe place to explore and create her innermost musical talents.  What a joy and privilege it has been to watch her grow musically year after year!

Development is WAY beyond what we would have imagined. Thank you for all that you do.

We could not be happier with Derek's progress.  We did not have expectations as we did not play instruments. His development is "WAY" beyond what we would have imagined. Thank you for all that you do." Mark and Danah M., Lowell, MI

Ms Betz has been an amazing teacher.  I am extremely pleased with how well my 5 year old daughter both plays and understands the music after only 8 months of lessons.  Ms. Betz is a very caring and patient teacher and my daughter looks forward to her lesson every week." - Heather T., parent, Ada, MI

Photos:  Joni began with piano lessons while he was 4 years old. He zoomed through effortlessly with four lesson books in less than two years.  He is now going into 7th grade.  He has continued to play the piano accomplishing another 6 lesson books.  In 6th grade he played the clarinet in band and now plays alto saxophone in his school concert and jazz bands.  His younger brother began piano lessons when he was 3 and has accomplished 5 lesson books.  Both brothers have performed in countless concerts and just love to perform.  How long will your child stay and how many instruments do they want to learn?

Joni's mom writes: "I have wanted to write to you to tell you that he really enjoys playing piano. One day he told me “mommy, I love piano”..I had never heard that from him before. I always had to explain to him why he had to go to piano…Now I find him practicing all by himself.  Actually he has gotten to the point where he knows more than I do. I really enjoy listening to him. His brother (3 years old) has been excited to finally been old enough to begin piano lessons with you." - Bertha B., Grand Rapids, MI
