There are 88 keys...
and within that,
an entire universe.

Welcome to The Music Room!
The Music Room, located in the Inner Richmond district of San Francisco, is a unique piano school dedicated to developing children's musicianship in a fun, friendly, and non-competitive environment.  
Spring Session Begins February 10th!
Think spring with a class at The Music Room! This session goes from February 10th through May 30th, with a recital in early June. There will be two Level 1 classes for beginners aged 4½ to 6, one on Tuesdays at 3:30 and one on Saturdays at 10:00. Classes will also start for beginners age 3-4 as well as beginners age 8-11. Check out more class details or email me at info[at symbol] with your questions. I hope you can come tickle the ivories with us!

My group piano classes are designed to introduce children to keyboard playing and general musicianship, and to develop their ability to play piano, read music, sing and solfege, and grasp rhythmic concepts. If your child is interested in learning piano, the back-to-school season is a great time to get their musical education underway!
Sample Class on Saturday Feb. 3!
Wondering if your child will like piano classes? Sign up for the free sample class for ages 4½ to 7 on Saturday, February 3rd, from 10:00 to 11:00. For the first half hour, we'll do some keyboard-playing, singing, and rhythm activities, and you'll have a chance to look at the book we'll be using this semester. In the second half hour, I'll be available to chat with you and answer any questions you might have.

If you'd like to arrange a visit for later in the semester, just email me at info[at symbol] or put your request in the comments when you Join My Email List.
About My Classes
I offer group piano classes using a method called Harmony Road, with beginning classes for ages 3 to 7 and continuing classes through age 11. My classes are the perfect way to introduce young children to the piano! With the Harmony Road method, I'm able to impart measurable musical skills in a fun and engaging way, avoiding the pressure and boredom that some children may experience in private piano lessons. And because my class size is limited to seven children, your child will still get plenty of individualized attention.
Harmony Road is parent-participatory and child-focused, with a variety of engaging activities in each class. In addition to playing the keyboard, students sing songs, use rhythm instruments, draw notes and musical symbols, and play games. Hey, who doesn't love musical bingo?
