Beginning Piano Lessons

Piano lessons begin with learning the note names of the keys on the piano, hand formation, fingering, note reading, and how to play beginning songs. As you progress, you will begin learning scales, more challenging method book studies, and solos. 
Often times, parents wonder how old their child must be to start the piano. Almost any age can start learning this versatile instrument. Students ages 4 and up are invited to sign up for lessons.  2 and 3 year olds who participate in our family music classes may be promoted to piano lessons early based upon readiness and teacher recommendation.

For parents of very young children, I use the Music for Little Mozarts method book, which is perfect for ages 3-6.  Students, parents, and I love how this book uses stories and memorable characters to teach young ones how to play piano. 


Lessons are personalized to fit the player's goals, needs, and preferences. 


My goal is to see you love music and develop a lifelong appreciation for music and interest in playing your instrument.
