What are Parents and Teachers Saying?
My Wunderkeys™ program is going GREAT! I had 8 sign up for a free trial and 6 stayed on with me and are loving it! I have one family that drives 45 minutes to lessons because I am the only one teaching a program like this. (It’s pretty rural outside of Norman so that’s not a hugely unlikely thing, but still pretty cool they think it’s worth it). I just responded to two more inquiries this morning too. My only problem now is trying to get everyone into my getting jammed schedule. (Not complaining, nice problem to have!)

I have been using the WunderKeys Piano Program for a few of my youngest students since February 2012 and it is going very well! The book seems to move along at an appropriate pace and keeps them interested with the cute “finger friends” and stories. I’ve tried other methods with young students before and they usually get frustrated when they are pushed to move too fast or to learn things that they aren’t ready for, so I like how this program is developmentally appropriate and focuses on concepts that will also help them with math down the line. Music should be fun for little ones, and this program gives them lots of opportunity to play and learn at the same time!

I appreciate how the program has taken certain beginning concepts and broken them down to the very basics, for young children to visually understand ( higher, lower pitches, note length, rhythm patterns). Your emphasis on recognizing patterns with your finger character games is very creative. All of the “extras” on your website (songs, game cards, etc.) are such a plus!

My students love the finger puppets – they are adorable! I don’t think they will ever let me forget the finger rhymes or the “Wake Up Pointer Panda” song. I made laminated cards of all the finger friends and my students are arranging patterns already! I’ve even let them be the teacher and give me some examples to finish! Great work Andrea and Trevor!!!!!

In one day 7 children signed-up for the program. Wunderkeys is a great program for pre-schoolers! The kids love it! Thanks Wunderkeys!
I think this program is perfect for me being a first year piano teacher. I am starting out young, and what a fun age to start! They are genuinely excited, have lots of energy, and I believe I am laying a wonderful foundation for them through this program. They enjoy singing and moving to the songs. I’m even teaching the program to my daughter and she often asks me to sing the songs to her when it’s bedtime! They enjoy the card games and look forward to that after every lesson. I am often amazed when the lesson is over because time just flies by. I especially enjoy that there’s no cost to join the program. No training. I really like that they do the advertising for you and are always there to answer a question or need you may have in a very timely fashion. All in all, I really enjoy the program and would definitely recommend it to others looking to teach or wanting piano lessons for their preschooler.

“When I shared the WunderKeys Program with my wife, her response, “They understand how to work with pre-schoolers!” Her undergraduate degree was in the field of working with pre-schoolers, so her opinion is important to me. What I like about the program so far is that individual lessons are the focus. So many group curriculums and I am tired of adapting them. Thank you, for the work you have done for all of us teachers and preschool students! What you are doing needs to be trumpeted to all the world!”

Her mother has commented on how she sees and points out patterns everywhere now. 🙂 I’m hoping to get quite a few students next year. Preschool has always been my favorite age to teach, I just never had enough curriculum to keep them occupied. Thanks so much for your wonderful program!

It helps children to appreciate music and explore their own creativity in an atmosphere of support and encouragement, while building a strong musical foundation. Many of the concepts overlap with the principles of math they will be learning in kindergarten and they don’t even realize they are learning- it’s such fun!
Jane Saunders, Parent
This simple, half hour weekly class will aid in empowering him when it is time for kindergarten. I asked Aidan how he felt about his piano lessons and he said “I want to take piano lessons until I am one hundred.” He is so proud of his ability and accomplishments with each lesson and home practice.
Katrina Grounds, Parent
It warms my heart that we have found a fun and completely age-appropriate music activity. I want my children to enjoy learning and appreciate music in all forms and this has been an exceptional experience so far for all of us.
Natasha Hennessy, Parent
We love the one-on-one time each week rather than a group session. She always comes out of her lesson happy and with a smile on her face
Genneine Mckenzie, Parent
The program is extremely enjoyable which keeps kids interested and excited about learning more.
Kimberley Gent, Parent
If I knew music was this much fun I would have started when I was much, much younger.
