Give your child a head start in music, maths and life with the WunderKeys series! This series is designed to be a fun and exciting introduction to the piano for 3-5 year old and can also give your child a kickstart in maths. The lessons consist of patterning activities, finger exersises, duets, and games. Below are some frequently asked questions about the WunderKeys series.
Preschool piano students are welcome to take buddy lessons (20 minutes private and 20 minutes with another student) or partner lessons (45 minutes with two students together). Kids thrive with this time to play with others and learn through games.

FAQ’s about Wunderkeys
The WunderKeys program is specifically designed to be offered as a one-on-one lesson. For many preschoolers this is their first experience in a non-group setting. This arrangement allows the instructor to personalize the lessons to each individual child’s needs as well as ensuring that your child is an active participant for the entire lesson duration.
How long are they? How often?
WunderKeys lessons are 30 minutes and take place once a week.
Do I need a piano at home?
Your child will need an instrument to practice on at home. This can be an acoustic piano, a digital piano or even a keyboard.
My little one is really active – I’m not sure they can sit for 30 minutes.
WunderKeys has been designed with preschoolers’ needs in mind. They will not be expected to sit patiently at the piano bench for 30 minutes! We incorporate five different activities into each lesson to ensure your child is always focused, engaged, and active – each activity is designed to reinforce concepts learned in their books. Our priority is to ensure that your child is enjoying every single minute of their lessons!
I have no musical background at all. How can I help my child at home?
After each lesson in the book is a Home Activity Sheet that can be completed with your child during practice time at home. The books are designed to allow all parents to help with home practice, regardless of prior musical knowledge. At this age “practicing” should be approximately 10-15 minutes every day and is spent reinforcing what was learned in the lesson, and building finger strength and coordination. The intent is for home practice to provide you with some “bonding on the bench” time with your child, sharing in the fun of music.
