A music program that's making preschoolers smile!
Can preschoolers really learn to play the piano? Of course they can!
Wunderkeys Piano for Preschoolers program is a very exciting and fun program for preschoolers ages 3.5 - 5 years old!
This is a story based and visually stimulating piano program. It will take very young children with no prior musical experience on a musical journey. They will acquire the piano skills, keyboard awareness, and rhythmic understanding needed for a successful future at the piano.
During a Wunderkeys lesson your child will participate in musical activities both on and off the piano bench. We do songs, duets, rhymes, games and imaginative activities to keep your child engaged and begging for their next lesson. The handmade Wunderbie Finger Puppets are always a favorite!
Wunderkeys gives preschool-aged children a head start in music, math, and life.
We offer 30-minute one-on-one lessons weekly using the Wunderkeys program in the San Ramon Valley area.
Starting school with WunderKeys experience means you can send your child to school confident in having given them a head-start!

"Thank you for having confidence in our son. It was your commitment that got him this far. We are very fortunate to have you as his teacher." ~ Puneet, Parent
