In 1991, David Kellen established Studio K Music with a dozen piano students of all ages and levels.  Over the past twenty-one years, he has influenced thousands of children and adults to become piano players for life.  Some former students have gone on to successful musical careers both nationally as well as locally. Whether just starting out, or a seasoned player, David Kellen can easily adapt his teaching style to fit your child’s needs.  

At Studio K Music, your child will never be bored with the same old fare found at many piano studios.  The music we play is exciting and fresh!  David Kellen has composed and arranged thousands of pieces for his students that will keep your child playing for many years.  We use a great deal of popular music along with the classics and all other styles to ensure your child receives a well-rounded piano  education.  Along with the fundamentals of music such as note reading, rhythm and technique, your child will experience the creative side of music by learning how to improvise and compose, a skill that is seldom taught even among even the best piano educators.

SO HOW DOES IT WORK?

Each one hour, semi-private lesson provides students with the opportunity to practice what they learn, giving them a higher retention level. A half hour private lesson, the student plays pieces, the teacher writes in the notebook, and the time is up!

Mr. Kellen is the primary instructor for every class and private lesson.  Teaching assistants are also on board to ensure that each student receives the instruction and attention needed. The hour allows students to learn more material and drill on the fundamentals: note reading, rhythms, scales and chords, improvisation, etc…

Each piano station is equipped with a laptop computer for recording, writing,  rhythm drills and music theory work. Once a child has enough recordings compiled,  he or she also receives the experience of making a cd of the performances!

All of the music the students work on is available for listening and playing along with on this website. A growing library of video help files are also available for individual pieces.

Mr. Kellen teaches IMPROVISATION, somethng the most other teachers wont’ even touch. Here, music theory is put into practice by teaching the students how to create his/her own music and improvise on pieces they play.

The class experience gives students the chance to play with others through duet and ensemble pieces, something most private students never have the opportunity to do.
