April 23, 2009 - PRLog -- Accelerando Music, offering piano and guitar lessons, early childhood music courses for playgroups, children’s birthday parties, and live music, announces its grand opening.  Accelerando proudly serves the Northern Virginia and greater D.C. area, providing their services in the client’s home or in Accelerando’s studio.  Visit to find out about their grand opening free offers.

Accelerando is a musical term meaning “to gradually increase in speed”.  Accelerando Music’s slogan, “accelerating your child’s growth and development through the world of music”, reflects their philosophy that music is a powerful catalyst that can jump start a child’s neural and physical development as early as infancy, and continue to foster a sense of confidence and personal fulfillment as he/she grows.  

Accelerando is currently accepting beginner to intermediate/advanced piano and guitar students, ages 5 and up, for lessons.  Lessons at Accelerando can be 30, 45, or 60 minutes, weekly or every other week, in the student’s home or in the home of Katie Ribik, Accelerando’s owner/instructor, in Old Town, Alexandria.  Lesson enrollment is ongoing, and lessons will begin at the end of May.  Accelerando is currently offering a free introductory lesson.

When asked about her piano lesson experience with Katie Ribik, one student said, “the arrival of Ms. Ribik on the day of your lesson will put a smile on your face and a passion for music in your heart that matches her own, if that’s possible.”  Another of Katie’s students stated, “she made me fall in love with playing guitar and singing.”  

Accelerando also offers in-home early childhood music courses for established playgroups.  Accelerando will follow the playgroup’s schedule and travel to its meeting location(s).  A typical class is 45 minutes and features music play games, singing, dancing, playing instruments, and various movement activities that use scarves, bean bags, hula hoops, etc.  Parents and children actively participate together.  Course options include one single session, five or ten consecutive weeks, or eight alternating weeks.  Accelerando is currently offering a free music session for any playgroup.

Another service offered by Accelerando Music is children’s birthday parties.   Katie Ribik will come to the party’s location and lead an exciting, 45-minute music activity with the party guests.   For more information on Accelerando Music and its services, visit

Numerous studies have repeatedly demonstrated how music education can lead to a higher aptitude in math, science, reading, athletics, creativity, and problem solving.  Accelerando’s curriculum is based on this research and the belief that music making strengthens a child’s development while bringing families and friends closer together.
