Skype Piano Lessons Adapted for Special Heroes


Empowering Lives through Music is an idea that began in 1992 when I first worked with at-risk youth & abused children in Finland. ELM is a multi-faceted approach to helping people improve their lives through the power of music. It is an evidence-based program based upon the latest research and my work experience of 25+ years. 

ELM helps people learn to make positive choices by using music as a means of motivation to achieve academic goals, bolster self-esteem, strengthen trust, promote confidence, improve social skills, boost memory & agility, & build teamwork.
