“Our son began studying piano with Andrea less than two years ago and we are amazed at his progress under her guidance. She has identified what interests him and she has used that to her advantage in his learning process. Her genuine passion for music comes through in her teaching and her approach. Andrea is an incredibly gifted pianist/teacher and we are very thankful that she shares her gift with our son and other budding music lovers.” – Carolyn DellaForesta, Parent
“I like it when Andrea lets us collect Music Money for the amount of practices we do and at the end she has all these things for us to buy using our Music Money. Andrea always makes learning the notes and scales fun”. – Ethan, Sunbeams 2 Student
” Music for Young Children has this amazing way of reinforcing note names and patterns. I am filling in many blanks that I missed while taking music as a child just from participating in the classes with my son. MYC is such a well thought out program and Andrea adds to its gradual and fun progression into more advanced material, so much so that my son has retained information from music classes that I would never thought possible at the age of 5 or 6.” – Robin Patterson, MYC Parent
“The philosophy of the Music for Young Children®program is to help children develop the happy habit of learning music. Music for Young Children provides the necessary structure for learning to take place while allowing children the freedom to think. Children are empowered to set goals in their learning while experiencing a playful, positive environment.” – Barbara Coloroso, Educator and Author of kids are worth it!
“The Music for Young Children program has to be counted as the dominant force in the musical training of young children in Canada today. Many of the new students arriving each year in my studio are graduates of Music for Young Children. They arrive superbly prepared and well motivated for further study. MYC teachers have found the right balance. They successfully blend the pleasure and joy of music making with the rigour of a well-crafted pedagogical progression. – Marc Widner, Chief Examiner emeritus, Royal Conservatory Music Examinations
