Description

Biography:

Solomon said: "There is nothing new under the sun"1 .......of course he never learned how to be a 'piano monster' with Dr. Ken Mahood.

Now that we have your attention, here's a few quick pointers about learning piano and keyboard You don’t practice for hours a day. You don’t get a boring session of “don’t do this” or “don’t do that”. You DO really learn how to have fun at the keyboard. You DO experience the fun of making your own music. You CAN increase your child’s basic IQ2 through piano instruction. You CAN have your child learn responsibility: It’s up to the student to practice, not the parent. organize your text to make it more understandable for the reader.

The Universal Instrument. So, why is the piano called: “The Universal Instrument”? Because it’s the only instrument where the student can actually “see” all the notes or keys available to play. In that respect, it fosters such a well based source of music concepts that even a first year piano student will have up to an 80% increase in their ability to learn any other musical instrument, including voice. It’s also why voice majors in any college or university four year undergraduate program are required to take at least 2 years of piano instruction. 3 Piano is one of the greatest tools for increasing computer response and learning awareness (because of it’s great attention to detail).4

Where It Happens. Just 15 minutes from Ashburn-Sterling area--in Leesburg, is the “Piano Penthouse” where Dr. Ken makes each afternoon music session light up ( we mean that literally, using the lighting effects in Dr. Mahood’s studio which are coupled to the student’s music output).

No ‘Gimmick’. The great part about everything we’ve said is that this is no gimmick. It’s Ken’s way of reaching young minds and helping them to journey down their own road of musical discoveries and even learn more about responsibilities. Dr. Mahood has taught over 1,500 student how to have fun at the keyboard. He uses his ‘offbeat’ sense of humor coupled with positive reinforcements like contests, awards, and medals. It’s easy to learn more…just try a no obligation Evaluation which lasts a little over an hour. Dr. Mahood will develop a custom learning program based upon your child’s level of musical acuity.

Tuition. It has always been Dr. Mahood’s goal to provide the best possible music education for the lowest dollar amount. Although Ken has outstanding education in his field and over 30 years of teaching in both the public and private sector, our rates are still competitive with the rates normally found with entry level instructors. Please call or contact Dr. Mahood for rates.
