  •     Playing music increases human growth hormone (HgH) production among active older Americans. The findings revealed that the test group who took keyboard/piano lessons showed significantly higher levels of HgH than the control group of people who did not make music (University of Miami)

  • Music is beneficial because it allows individuals to reminisce and go back and relate to emotions and experiences. Music activates many areas of the brain.

    When learning how to play the piano, the process incorporates both physical and auditory participation.

    I encourage you to take the time to participate in brain healthy music learning. It is never too late to learn to sing or play the piano and enjoy the gift of music

    Madelene Capelle is not just a great teacher of music and singing, she is a great teacher. I began with Madelene 10 months ago and my results are truly transformational. I have sung in choruses and choirs and as a soloist for over 55 years, including with conductors such as Margaret Hillis, Thomas Peck, and Jane Hardester. I have studied individually with faculty at USC in Los Angeles. Madelene's knowledge of music, singing, and technique is the equal of any. Despite my advancing age, she has provided the necessary technique to release, produce, and use my voice far beyond anything I have previously experienced. Thanks to Madelene I can look forward to the pleasure of making music for the foreseeable future at a level I always hoped for but had never reached. I strongly recommend her to anyone interested in exploring or developing their vocal potential.
