My son started lessons at teVelde when he was just 3 1/2. At the time, I thought that he would be too young, but Bonnie assured us that he would learn Perfect Pitch if he started. Now, 6 years later, at 9, my son not only has Perfect Pitch, but he plays piano beautifully and reads music fluently!

Our students learn to play faster, enjoy lessons more and stick with their instrument longer. This is because we custom-tailor each lesson to the student's learning style and personality. You and/or your child will be playing right from the start and will be set up to enjoy a lifetime of music. Our teachers stand apart through their commitment to give each student a unique opportunity to experience the amazing effects that come with taking music lessons. Students come away with top-notch musical training, as well as increased confidence and self-esteem, enhanced brain and body function, and a greater appreciation for something we can all connect with - music. We go through an exhausting screening process to find and train teachers who are musicians, not musicians who want to "teach" on the side. We also have Music Therapists on staff for working with children and adults that have learning disabilities and special needs. All this is a testament to our mission here at teVelde Music, Inc. We use music to spread joy. Come have fun with us!

Perfect Absolute Pitch: Our Greatest Mission We consider our greatest contribution to every student and potential musician is the opportunity to work with us develop perfect absolute pitch (AP), or relative pitch recognition in every student. teVelde Music, Inc. specializes in helping students learn to hear "in color". It has long been thought that AP can only be taught before the age of 6, otherwise the ability is lost forever. We are breaking new ground by being able to teach AP to students of ANY AGE!

My daughter, Emily, age 8, has been taking piano lessons with Cassidy at teVelde for 2 years.

My daughter has been taking music lessons at teVelde School of Music for only about half a year; but the progress she's made (even at the tender age of 4-1/2 by the way) is amazing. Her teacher is amazing, patient, knowledgeable and VERY VERY good at what she does. The owner, Bonnie (who is not only a wonderful musician and writer) is brilliant when it comes to understanding kids (or anyone who wants to learn music) ... view moreWas this review helpful?Yes(1) No|Flag Abuse
