Music with Mary J is a seasoned studio built on over 40 years of experience.    The studio has students ranging in age from kindergarteners who are just starting to study music through grandparents who what to either begin or return to playing.  Mary J is able to help the student connect with the musical subject.  

Many scientific studies have shown that learning music enhances brain development.  Playing the piano requires using both the dominant and non dominant hands, and therefore strengthens both the right and left sides of the brain.

Also, music lessons teach life skills such as:
- Confidence in learning new things
- Poise when performing or speaking in front of others
- Perseverance when the going gets tough
- Discipline and time management
- Sense of accomplishment for a job well done
