For Lydia McVay, piano study is a multi-faceted endeavor that has rewards that extend far beyond keyboard skills.
Research suggests that music study provides one of the best ways to stimulate learning in many other areas.


Committed study can bring enduring benefits:
  • Expanding and nurturing mind skills that extend throughout life
  • Sharpening pro-active attitudes toward self-directed
    problem solving
  • Beginning on-going exploration and refinement of unique
    aptitudes, skills, and feelings
  • Realizing the emotional satisfaction of dedicated effort
  • Development of aesthetic awareness
Learning the art of the piano is not limited to the "gifted child," but is accessible to all students who are committed to learning and problem solving. Lydia Ferrell McVay's teaching goal is to make music a vital part of the life of each student, adding enrichment and joy.
