"This is one of Adam's solos from the recital. The Harmony Road piano method teaches skills to their students that I wish I would have learned when I took lessons. For this number, Adam's piano book gives him the melody line. He first learns to play the melody and then sing the notes in solfege. Then he has to decide which chords sound good with the melody line. He writes it into his music using lead line and chooses a rhythm style for the accompaniment. After he can play the accompaniment he has composed, he practices singing the melody line with it. Singing and playing at the same time is difficult enough, but singing something with an entirely different rhythm and notes is amazing to me. I highly recommend the Harmony Road program and if you're lucky enough to live in the area, Alissa Wakefield is a wonderful teacher."
“We currently have all six of our children involved with the Mountain Home Music School. The kids range in ages 7 to 19. All six take piano lessons, two take violin, one cello, and one just starting the viola. The teaching staff at the school are well prepared to teach and our kids enjoy the atmosphere at the school for learning and the opportunity to share what they have learned at the various concerts and recitals throughout the year.”

“My two children have attended Mountain Home Music School for over three years now. The group setting at the music school has taught my children to be more confident and secure during their musical education. Working in a group has taught them how to play in an ensemble, to work together at different speeds, and to help others in the group to accomplish the common goal. They have conquered a fear by 11 and 7 that many adults still have not, by learning to perform and speak in front of an audience. Neither of my children were confident with their vocal skills before attending the music school, but they have learned so much more than piano with their instructor that they now feel that standing up and singing in front of a group is as normal as night and day. In just a few years my children are both very well versed with music, my oldest now playing clarinet as well, and they both have joined a choir. They are still excited to go there every week, see their classmates, and give their best. There is nothing quite like listening to your children play piano while cooking dinner, and there is really nothing quite like listening to my oldest help my youngest when he gets stuck somewhere; a future piano instructor in the making. Mountain Home Music School has changed our lives and we are so thankful for the people there.”

Learning to play the piano is learning to become a musician. A good musician knows how to read notes and rhythms independently and can maintain their own part in an ensemble.
During group piano lessons, we learn strong musicianship skills through movement, singing, games, and writing activities.
In a group setting, students play in what can be referred to as a piano band. Many pianists go on to play
for choirs and soloists without the training necessary to play with other musicians. In group piano lessons, everyone plays in an ensemble, thus building the skills needed for strong solo playing and accompanying. Because you have multiple keyboards each student can choose a different voice for their part which helps them better hear the different parts.
Pianists often suffer from performance anxiety. In group piano lessons, students play for one another frequently in a safe, supported environment, thus reducing the cause of anxiety in advanced pianists. Everyone has an opportunity to perform what they have been working on for the class. It serves as a great motivator for the students to practice as they know they will get to perform at the very next class.
Parental participation keeps the parents aware of their progress. Since they are learning along with the student, they are able to support them throughout the week as they practice at home.
We are excited to be able to offer the Harmony Road Certified Music training program here in our Mountain Home, Idaho community.

Whether you're 2 or 92, you can benefit mentally, physically and socially from playing a musical instrument.
Everyone knows that playing musical instrument is fun and entertaining. But did you also know that playing music is scientifically proven to benefit people of all ages.
Children and Teens -- Playing music positively affects the development of children's cognitive skills. It builds confidence, self-discipline and inspires creativity. Also playing music can increase productivity and help kids and teens connect socially with their peers.
Adults and Seniors -- Playing exercises the brain and helps fight memory loss. It helps reduce stress and lower blood pressure. And it can stave off depression and loneliness.
So no matter what age you are it's never to late to start learning to play an instrument or sing just for the love and fun of it.
