Overview

    Whether you aspire to play Bach or Alicia Keys, Our dedicated piano instructors will help you become the pianist you want to be.

You do not need an acoustic piano at home to take lessons; a simple full-size electronic keyboard will suffice for the first six months.

    Why take piano lessons?

      Learning and playing the piano has been scientifically proven to help with brain development and prevent hearing and memory loss. Students are significantly better at math because of its connections to music. Music is like learning another language, thus exercising new language skills. Reading comprehension and creativity are increased. Memorizing music helps improve memory skills. The piano requires concentration, patience, and discipline. Coordination is also required by using moving hands and sometimes both feet for the pedals. But best of all, learning the piano is a great stress reliever and simply fun and easy to learn! A great starting instrument for young children, since making the sound of the piano is as easy as pressing down the key.
