About Us


Our Approach

Have you ever been in a room where someone…everyone is speaking a different language?  They totally understand each other and are responding with laughter or questions.  And then they all get up and leave.  You have no idea what just happened.  That is often the way it is for young children and even adults who have never had the opportunity to learn the language of music.  Don’t miss this chance to open your ears to all the magic going on around you continually.

Meet the Founder

Carol Anderson is a Suzuki Violin teacher in Fort Washington, Pa.  She has been teaching for a long time……

With a degree in Psychology, Carol has combined her understanding of how we think and process information with the study of music and music theory.  Be sure to receive the newsletters with amazing insights as to the ‘why’ behind how we learn a certain way….and often different than what would seem like everyone else in the world.

Next Steps…

Never practice incorrectly again.  Memorize the music almost magically.  Ignite your sleeping brains.  Pick a class level and watch how quickly you are able to understand what you are learning.  Practice does not make perfect.  It makes it permanent, so be sure you have all the information you need so your muscles don’t create a memory that has to be changed.
