Enrico Aquino III began tinkling the ivories at the age of three, eventually playing his way to the hallowed performance spaces at Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center. The talented pianist was born into a musical family: his father opened a music school and piano store in New Jersey, and Aquino has kept the family tradition alive by embracing his father’s belief in friendly, encouraging instruction. The retailer pairs players with new and pre-owned pianos made by brands such as Seiler, J. Strauss & Son, and Baldwin Pianos or digital pianos from makers such as Viscount and Korg. The music academy, meanwhile, has guided fingers of all ages in waltzing across keys for more than 60 years. The academy’s skilled instructors delve into classical, jazz, and popular music during private lessons for pupils who have never read music to those who swallowed a metronome as a child and have been reaping the benefits ever since.

Steinway grand piano was not designed with a three-year-old in mind. These beautiful, expensive instruments?15 to 20 of which sprawl across Lindeblad School of Music's showroom?look too imposing and elegant for a person who still dreams of growing up to become a helicopter. But at Lindeblad School of Music?s recitals, these ivory-tickling toddlers climb the Steinway's bench, dangle their legs over its pedals, and begin to pluck rich, gorgeous sound from machines hand carved from African mahogany and other opulent woods.
It?s not that the Lindeblad family doesn?t know the worth of these instruments?after all, they?ve been restoring them for four generations. But the recitals epitomize one of Lindeblad School of Music's educational principles: a dual emphasis on practice and performance. As they?re taking lessons, students are preparing to play before an audience on a superb piano or realistically painted refrigerator box. The faculty who help them all possess an inclination to instruction as well as diversity in their musical experience. The Lindeblad School of Music offers one-on-one lessons and group classes in piano, voice, guitar, and violin. Before a course of private study, the school's director, Dr. Vogel, pairs students interested in a specific genre, such as classical or jazz, with teachers from that field, most of whom have a master's degree or a doctorate degree. Parents are welcome to meet with the director by appointment throughout the year to discuss children's progress and goal assessment. During their children's lessons, parents can wait in a reception area equipped with a coffee machine, WiFi, and a television playing music programming.
