Our piano teachers’ goal is to train a complete musician who can read music and understand music theory. Many outside piano teachers only teach their students how to play by ear. The problem with taking piano lessons this way is that students never learn to read music, and in turn they don’t understand the notes or rhythms they’re playing. You would be surprised how many piano players have no idea what they’re doing- they’re just copying others on YouTube. With this mentality, why take lessons? We want our piano students to be able to play any piece of music they would like. Learning to read music will eventually allow students to break down complex rhythms, figure out the best finger patterns, ensure they are playing the correct notes, and overcome progress plateaus.
Our piano teachers have extensive backgrounds in music, many years of teaching experience, and are constantly striving to make a difference in each of their student’s lives. We work with students as young as five years old. Students who start piano at a young age reap many benefits, including counting and math skill improvement, reading comprehension, creativity, time management, new language skills, hand-eye coordination, and more. And don’t forget that piano lessons also help build a foundation of love of music for the rest of their lives!
