Realize your musical dreams

COVID-19 Update:

Effective March 18th

All Lessons will be taught remotely.

The same AMAZING Lesson

In YOUR home!

I have equipped each of my teachers with remote accounts through WhatsApp, Facetime and Skype to safely bring your personal music teacher into your home!


Your teacher will contact you to help guide you through setting up your remote lessons.  

During this time we will do what we can to continue to keep your lessons consistent, lighthearted, and uplifting, all the while keeping our students and teachers safe.

If you are looking for private, custom-tailored music lessons, we are capable of setting them up for you in the comfort and safety of your home through our one-on-one video lessons.

COMING SOON: Group Music Camp from Home! It will meet once per week, and be completely FREE for all teVelde students already enrolled in weekly lessons!

With Love, Respect, and Gratefulness

'Learning with SensAPitch is so much easier

than old black and white lesson books'

What is Absolute Perfect Pitch?

Absolute Perfect Pitch is the “secret sauce” of musical talent characterized by the ability to recognize a note without a reference. Learning to play a new instrument is much easier with Absolute Perfect Pitch as it enhances every aspect of learning music, from playing by ear to sight-reading. It makes listening a richer, full color experience. Up to now, most have thought this to be a rare form of musical genius. We currently teach this skill to our students. 

What is Whole-Brain Learning?

Through the Whole-Brain Approach, SensAPitch (TM) engages both the right and left hemispheres of the brain using color and multi-sensory input. We add a combination of melodic and rhythmic instruments to build connections between different regions of the brain. This enhances spatial reasoning abilities that affect math and science comprehension. We use specific strategies that enhance short and long-term memory.


The Rojas Family

"Walking in the doors of teVelde was the single best decision we have ever made for our children. When we walk in, all of us relax. The environment for learning is unparalleled. Teachers invited me into lessons, and now I'm learning cello. This school has taken a 10 year old boy, gave him a solid foundation in music theory, perfect pitch, and advanced piano technique, and prepared him for life as a professional composer.


- Sebern/Marsden Family

"He loves his lessons so much, he wants to be a music teacher. These children have literally grown up in this music school family, and we have now built a music room with a Yamaha grand piano in it for our whole family to play! It's our legacy for our grandchildren, and that's big. Thank you for designing music lessons that really work at creating a lifelong love for music!"


Teach Elementary

"Dear Bonnie, We wanted to tell you how much we appreciate your time and expertise in teaching fall and winter elective classes at Teach School. The students learn so much about composing and playing ukulele, and are hoping we can persuade you to teach every year! Teach School would not be the same without you! Thank you very much!
