What does a lesson involve?
Each lesson will have a balance of theory, ear training, piano repertoire development, and finger exercises. As each student starts their musical education journey, we access what the student wants to focus on and learn. Lessons will be tailored to focus on their interests whether it’s note reading, jazz, vocal and ear training, or pop music!
Do I need a piano?
At the very least, you’ll need a keyboard with weighted keys. Down the road, a piano is highly recommended.
Do I need to practice?
Absolutely! In order to improve at the piano, there must be dedication beyond the weekly lessons with the goal being daily practice.
Can we do group piano?
Yes, there are discounted rates for teaching two children together for a 45 minute lesson.
