Is Your Child Ready for Piano Lessons?

How can you be sure your child is ready to begin piano lessons? You don’t want to start them too early. That would be a waste of your time and money. Plus, you run the risk of them not liking music lessons at all.

As a parent, you want your child to have a positive experience at the piano. You want music to be something that brings them joy.

But piano is easy, right? You just look at the note and play the key and you’re making music, right?

Not necessarily. Beginning piano lessons can be kind of overwhelming. For a child whose first exposure to music is the first piano lesson, there is a LOT to take in.

They have to learn how to navigate the pattern of the keyboard, how to determine when a note goes up or goes down, how to make loud and soft sounds, how to play quickly and how to play slowly. There are different ways to play a note. Students have to learn a new way of numbering their fingers. Navigating different rhythms can be tricky.

And all of this before they even learn how to read a note on the staff (the five lines where notes reside), which is when traditional music making happens.

What if there was a way to get a child ready to read music by the first piano lesson?

What if there was a way to get children so ready for formal piano lessons that their first experience on a piano bench was a pleasure and a delight?

What if there was a way to ensure your child has a foundation for musical success, regardless of which instrument they choose?

There is a way.

Introducing…Music Fun Safari, a Piano Prep class for preschoolers!


As a piano teacher, I know how overwhelming beginning piano lessons can be. In this weekly preschool class, I give your child a solid music base that will guarantee that they will be more than ready to begin formal lessons by the time they start kindergarten.

We will take all of the overwhelming concepts found in the early stages of piano lessons and learn them through games, music, movement, and crafts…all of the activities that preschoolers love. Each weekly lesson uses safari animals to help reinforce the musical concept we learn that day.

The best part is that they won’t stress out about learning music. It will be fun and enjoyable and they will happily come to class each week!


But I don’t have a piano…is that a problem?

These classes will not teach your child how to play at the piano, but they will give your child all of the music fundamentals that will set them up for success in learning ANY instrument!

 You will be able to go to any music teacher at the start of kindergarten and present your child as a student who is ready to jump right into learning how to read notes.

You also have some time between now and then to find a great piano for your family (and I can help you with that, too!).

There is no requirement for your child to practice. They will absorb everything they need to know to be ready for formal lessons just by being in class each week.

How much does it cost?

Tuition is $75 a month with a $25 registration fee. Tuition payments are due the 1st of each month.

What people are saying about Music Fun Safari

My daughter loves Miss Mindy and her Safari Music Introductory Class. She learns a lot each week and always looks forward to their class. Mindy loves each of the kids she works with and I think she gets the best out of them because of that! We would highly recommend her to anyone.

I have been researching various types of music programs for my 5 year old and found that piano lessons don’t typically start until kids are little bit older, I was very excited when I came across Mindy Rawlinson’s Piano Studio and the Music Fun Safari class for preschoolers .

My daughter loves the class and says that music is her favorite activity. I love that she is learning so much and building a solid foundation for her future academic and music success. Mindy does all of this in a fun, active and engaging environment; I am beyond happy with the class! I look forward to my younger children experiencing this class.
