I provide music and motion classes for young children in Jefferson City, Missouri, and the surrounding areas. Classes begin with babies, and continue through beginning piano classes, using the world-class Musikgarten curriculum. I also offer accelerated piano classes, and private lessons for piano, voice, guitar, ukulele, bass guitar, drums, and more!. There is music FUN for Everyone!

By considering music education for your child at an early age, you have taken a first step toward improving your child's natural musical potential and enriching your family life with active music-making.

While joyfully singing, moving, listening, and playing simple natural instruments, children develop a strong musical foundation in pitch recognition, steady beat, rhythm patterns, and music repertoire.

As you familiarize yourself with my class offerings and learn more about Musikgarten, I will be glad to answer your questions and welcoming your family into my music studio.

Musikgarten is the only program that offers curricula for newborns through group piano instruction. It is based on a keen understanding of how children learn, in both a general sense and, specifically, how they learn music. I have a 9-year plan for your child, so let's start now!

I wanted to play guitar since I was a teenager... 40 years ago. So at the age of 61 I started lessons with my brand new no-name guitar I ordered from Amazon.
Yep, it was mostly kids, but that didn't really matter, because I could learn as much as I wanted, as fast or slow as I wanted.
They have excellent instructors (Dave Jordan was my guitar teacher) and we covered an extraordinary mix of technique, practical application, and music theory. I started from scratch and learned a lot, but more importantly, I learned how to find the resources I needed to learn more.
Also, when I first started, I had a conflict with another on-going appointment, and they worked with me so I could fit everything into my schedule.
In April I was confident enough to play in their music recital, which would have normally been way outside my comfort zone. I played a simplified version of one of my all-time favorite songs ("Ghost Riders In The Sky") that Dave helped me put together and fine tune the timing on. I was surprised how much I enjoyed it.
I recommend JC Music Academy for kids, but I recommend them for adults, too. It's not only fun, but you can take that instrument you've been promising yourself you'd pick up "some day," and actually learn how to play it.
