Music is the chalk to the blackboard of life.
Without it, everything would be a blank slate.

— Ray Charles

Life would be flat without music. It is the background of all I do.
It speaks to the heart in its own special way like nothing else.

— Ludwig van Beethoven

Soprano Joanne McDade at piano

Joanne is wonderful! My daughter absolutely adores Joanne and looks forward to her lessons every week. With Joanne’s passion for music and positive and supportive teaching approach, I see my daughter developing not only an impressive skill set as a pianist, but a love for music and a greater confidence in herself. I couldn’t be happier. ~ Callie S.

I’m very surprised with the progress K. has been making through the years, and it’s exciting to see that she can learn and play more complex music. Even during virtual learning, K. continues to make great progress and expresses such enthusiasm and enjoyment in every lesson with Ms. Joanne. K. is never left feeling less of herself and always walks away from a lesson more confident and excited to learn” ~ Stella K.
