“Our daughter started from scratch with her piano lessons with a new teacher in a new city two years ago. Since, then, she has developed much more confidence and joy in her playing. She may not always get it right, but she has a great deal of encouragement and practice. When she was able to play most of her songs in the beginner’s book, she was encouraged to start learning hymns.

We attend a small church where the song service consists of hymns with piano and voice, and no other instruments. We have found a purity and scripturally supported focus on God that is unparalleled in hymns. Through the music arranged by Kim Snow of Praisenotes.com, used in Mindy’s piano studio, our 7 year old daughter has been able to sing and play the hymns, “Joyful, Joyful” and “What Can Wash Away My Sings” in a relatively short period at church during Sunday and Wednesday service. She has closed the service with those songs even no adults were able to play.

Many have said they do not know how to read music and instead play by ear. Although we as parents do not play piano, we are aware that is it important to recognize and hear the music, as well as read the notes. This method allows the young learner to quickly learn beautiful hymns and sing with joy to the Lord. Nothing can be better than waking up to a hymn played by a child. Thank you for making this possible. This is a gift for your child, the church, and God.”

Dear Mrs. Denigan,

Thank you for being my piano teacher. Thank you for teaching me how to read and play music. I hope I can pass the generation to my children. (Pass what I’ve learned on to the next generation)

Abigail’s piano teacher told her that it’s very difficult to play soft tunes and not loud dramatic ones. Most people pick loud tunes for recitals and prizes. Isn’t that true of Christian life? It’s very easy to be part of the big leadership stuff and the prominent things, but difficult to be part of the small stuff. The daily quiet disciplines of prayer, the steady parenting, gentle married days and hushed employee tones. Mindy Denigan, thank you for being there for us and making us more aware of the day to day. We love you.

 Mrs. Denigan’s music studio is filled with so many fun things that will keep your whole body challenged and in motion from start to finish.  

You will use energetic motion of every part of your body for rhythm, and she will captivate your eyes with endless visual stimuli in many colors, symbols, and dimensions.  She will engage your tactile sensations of touch using a variety of sizes, shapes and textures plus challenge your right/left hand coordination.  All along she will engage your auditory system using a variations of pitch, tone and volume.

She can do all this through the joy of music!

This is the amazing kind of fun music camp no child will want to miss. As an Occupational Therapist I highly recommend this as a fun experience that captivates all the sensory systems of the body.  This is invaluable for any child….even us big kids! This is one camp you don’t want to miss!
