Carolyn Inabinet, NCTM
Creator and Developer of PianoFonics
“I am absolutely convinced that music study not only provides a unique opportunity for an exceptional adult/child relationship to unfold but also encourages recreation and recreative expression in the adult and senior community. To this end, I have created a space and materials for both young and old to embark upon a musical journey that will hopefully last a lifetime.”
PianoFonics and Music Works Community
is dedicated to enhancing the quality of life in music students of all ages.
“The fact that people can make beautiful music is less significant
than the fact that music can make beautiful people.”

Student come in all shapes and sizes ….and so do their hands.
