 Private piano lessons in Sunnyvale, Cupertino, Mountain View for children from age 3-and-a-half and adults

5. Private piano lessons from age 3-and-a-half

One of the unique features of the Veksler Academy of Music and Dance is that it offers private piano lessons for children as young as 3 1/2 years old. The school has developed a special approach to teaching these youngsters in a fun yet professional way. Children at this age learn how to play piano from their first lesson, then from song to song they learn how to express emotions through the music, how to make songs better, how to read notes and finally get their songs ready for a recital.

6. Small dance class sizes

 Sunnyvale, Cupertino, Los Altos, Moutain View - dance classes for children ages 3 and older

If the dance class has fewer students in it each child will receive more personalized attention, learn more and have more fun. With younger students it is easier for a teacher to maintain control over the class and make sure each student understands the concepts and instructions. Our smaller class sizes make sure that no fundamental concepts are being missed. A smaller class size also allows our teachers to ensure that students are not developing bad habits or improper technique. Our studio limits all of our dance classes (ages 5 and up) to a maximum of just 12 students per class. With our kindergarten dance (Pre-School Dance) classes (ages 3 -4) & Angelina Ballerina Dance Classes (ages 3-5) we limit our classes to a maximum of just 8 students per class.
