Center Director and teacher Leah Anderson, enjoys leading piano and Music Together® classes filled with widely diverse music, captivating to whichever level of development the individual is at. Leah studied Piano Performance at the Univeristy of Iowa, Suzuki Teacher Training at the University of Stevens Point Wisconsin, and completed the Music Together teacher training at the Center For Music And Young Children® in Princeton, New Jersey. She has been an active teacher for 17 years.
Music Together's Philosophy , The Four Principles of Music Together®, and the Suzuki Method's--Mother Tongue Approach, have shaped Leah's personal style and method when leading instruction. Ms.Leah believes that:
- We are all born musical and that fundamental musical growth starts at age 0
- Musical ability of a parent or caregiver, does not determine the child's own musical ability
- What determines musical growth is the extent of music being played or listened to in a home, and how we interact with it
- Talent can be developed
