Piano Instruction with Ken Mahood, Ph.D, Ed D

Ken Mahood, Ph.D, Ed. D.

The Universal Instrument

So, why is the piano called: “The Universal Instrument”? Because it’s the only instrument where the student can actually “see” all the notes or keys available to play. In that respect, it fosters such a wealth of concepts in music that even a first year piano student will greatly increase their ability to study any other musical instrument, including voice.
It’s also why voice majors in college/university four year undergraduate program are required to take at least 2 years of piano instruction. In addition, piano is one of the greatest tools for increasing computer response and learning awareness (because of it’s great attention to detail).

Where it happens

Just 15 minutes from Ashburn-Sterling area--in Leesburg, is the “Piano Penthouse” where Dr. Ken makes each afternoon music session light up (we mean that literally, using the lighting effects in Dr. Mahood’s studio which are coupled to the audio output from the keyboards).

“There is nothing
new under the sun”

…of course he never
learned how to be a
‘piano monster’ with
Dr. Ken Mahood.

1. Ecclesiastes 1:9B
(New International Version)

Here’s a few quick pointers about
learning piano and keyboard we
think you should know.

You don’t practice for hours a day.

You don’t get a boring session of
“don’t do this” or “don’t do that”.

You DO really learn how to have
fun at the keyboard.

You DO experience the fun of
making your own music.

You CAN increase your child’s
basic IQ2 through piano instruction.

You CAN have your child learn
responsibility: It’s up to the
student to practice, not the parent.

No 'Gimmick'

The great part about everything we’ve said is that this is no gimmick. It’s Ken’s way of reaching young minds and helping them to journey down their own road of musical discoveries and even learn more about responsibility.
Dr. Mahood has taught over 5,000 students how to have fun at the keyboard. He uses his offbeat’ sense of humor coupled with positive reinforcements like contests, awards, and medals.

It’s easy to learn more…just try a no obligation Evaluation which lasts a little over an
hour. Dr. Mahood will develop a custom learning program based upon your child’s level of musical acuity.Fill out our no obligation Pre-Enrollment form here
