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.  
Fall Classes Begin September 12th
Back-to-school means a return to education, inspiration, and friends! What better time to enrich your child's life with piano classes?

My 7- and 14-week sessions 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!

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?
