Welcome to Piano Alpharetta
As doctorate candidates, Ipek Brooks and Dawn Dalangin, offer home studio piano lessons mainly for the areas of Alpharetta and Johns Creek. With over 10 years of experience, they have created their own teaching techniques tailoring each student's musical vision to his/her individual needs and abilities.
It is their goal with every student that they have an inspiring and enjoyable learning experience that also helps them lead a confident, creative, disciplined, and musical life.
Music enhances the process of learning. The systems they nourish, which include our integrated sensory, attention, cognitive, emotional and motor capacities, are shown to be the driving forces behind all other learning. ~ Konard, R.R., Empathy, Arts and Social Studies, 2000
U.S. Department of Education data shows that students who report consistently high levels of involvement in instrumental music during the middle- and high-school years show "significantly higher levels of mathematics proficiency by grade 12." ~ James Catterall, Richard Chapleau, and John Iwanaga, "Involvement in the Arts and Human Development." 1999
