Sonder Music is the private piano studio of Lauren Sonder. Ms. Sonder teaches in her home in Norman, Oklahoma. She offers piano lessons to children and adults, and believes in providing a well-rounded musical education.
"Being able to express oneself musically is truly a gift, as music can often express what words cannot. Piano lessons require work, commitment, and patience, but also have the capacity to bring lasting joy into a student's life. I love teaching piano and work hard to find the best approach to teaching every student. I emphasize a wide variety of musical skills so that students develop tools that can be applied in many different ways. For this reason, my piano lessons generally include a combination of repertoire, technique, music theory, music appreciation, and improvisation, and may also incorporate composition and more, depending on each student's needs. I strongly value student-parent-teacher communication as an important tool for creating effective, individualized instruction for every student."
In addition to weekly lessons, students in grades K-2 and 3-5 participate in periodic group piano classes. Students play for peers and learn in a fun, group setting.
Students have the opportunity to perform in two studio-wide recitals each year. These events are a time for families and friends to celebrate students' accomplishments.
