Wunderkeys for preschoolers                            

A head start in music, math, and life!

This is a unique program for preschoolers age 3 to 5.  Wunderkeys lessons are private weekly 30 min. lessons tailored to meet the needs of preschool-aged children and to ensure that their first music lesson experience is positive and enjoyable!  

Students participate in five different unique activities during their lesson time, ensuring they remain focused, engaged and happy.  Students have the opportunity to participate in fun activities both on and off the piano bench, which have been created to build confidence, increase enjoyment and solidify important music and math concepts.                                                                                                                        
 

 

Is My Child Ready For WunderKeys Piano Lessons?

Readiness for piano lessons can vary widely among 3 year olds! While some 3 year olds are very verbal but have difficulty focusing, others focus very well but have trouble with coordination. At this age, sometimes even just 6 months can make a big difference in terms of what they will get out of their lessons. When considering your child’s readiness, take the following into account (in no particular order): 


1.  Does he/she show interest in the piano? Does he like moving to music?

2.  Does he/she know the difference between banging on the piano and playing carefully?

3.  Does he/she respond well to questions when asked?

4.  Does he/she sit and listen to (short) stories with interest?

5.  Can he/she follow 2-part instructions (such as “Find your red sock and put it on the bed.”)

6.  Is he/she confident when speaking with other adults?

7.  Would he/she be happy in a setting where you were not present

8.  Is he/she easily brought back to task when distracted?

9.  Does he/she know his body parts by name (ie. hand, finger, toes, head etc.)

10.  Is he/she potty trained?

11.  Can he/she speak clearly and make himself understood in most situations?

12.  Can he/she wiggle just his thumbs when asked?

If you find you are answering “no” or “not quite” to many of these questions it is suggested that you wait a few months before beginning WunderKeys lessons. Little ones develop and change rapidly! WunderKeys is designed to help them grow and learn and creates the most feelings of success when they enter lessons able to do most of the tasks above.
