With over three decades of teaching experience, Mary Lou Hannibal, integrates traditional and innovative teaching methods into the Rhythm and Hues' Piano Program. Beginning and young piano students are introduced to various artists' styles and techniques. More experienced students learn to appreciate the way artistic approach affects expression! Unique incentive games, competitions, informal performance opportunities as well as formal ones accent a program that is then customized to fit each student's unique needs. A highlight is our annual piano recital at Joslyn Art Museum, which is held each spring. Students at all levels have to opportunity to perform! Mary Lou opened Rhythm & Hues with daughters Wendy & Amy in 1990! She is a member of IMTO, OMTA and NMTA.
