PIANO

Our highly accomplished and professionally educated piano instructors make changes in our students’ lives. They are very patient and have warm personalities. Our piano instructors develop a musical program and repertoire for each student individually. We accept students from 5 years old and teach all ages (children, teens, adults) and levels (beginner, intermediate, early advance, advance, professionals). We help our students/parents to choose and buy keyboard or acoustic pianos based on parents’ financial affordability. Our piano students will explore traditional repertoire across all periods; baroque, classical, romantic, 20th century, and contemporary. They will also have a chance to play melodies and pieces of their choice. In addition to repertoire performance, our students develop their skills by using technical exercises, do ear training, learn in depth theory, and practice sight reading. Various piano methods and books are used in order to broaden our students’ musical spectrum. In addition to solo performances, our students also have a chance to perform in duet settings by performing with friends or siblings. Each lesson is tailored based on students’ needs and goals. All our students benefit from one-on-one lesson setting, which allows them to have the instructor’s full attention. Students are encouraged to perform in our seasonal showcase events; recitals, recordings, performances, CM, RCM exams. Our goal is to motivate our students to practice and constantly improve their skills. Most importantly, we inspire our students to have fun and enjoy their lesson in a safe and professional environment.
