 La Campanella (“The Little Bell”) (Paganini/Liszt)
Experience the distinctive artistry of
Dakota Pianist, Eugene Gienger

A multitude of research at North American Universities shows that children who begin learning the piano before starting school demonstrate outstanding academic performance during their teen years.  Piano playing develops spatial-temporal thinking, which lays the foundation for success at reading, maths and science.  Here then is a pro-active, indirect solution to the falling academic scores among NZ 15-year-olds on the latest OECD rankings, which parents can employ to give their children an edge in life!
The Wieck Piano Academy of Newlands is committed to the youngest students (ages 2.75 to 4.25) and their parents, to develop not only musical and pianistic skills, but to lay a foundation for academic success, through its 200-year-old methodology derived from the famous nineteenth-century German piano teacher Friedrich Wieck.  All teaching is done with a parent present.
Contact the Wieck Piano Academy of Newlands today to schedule your free interview/evaluation.  All ages are considered, but preference is given to the youngest beginners, and secondarily to diploma/university entrance candidates.  Teaching is offered in the tradition of the great classical masters.
