Our experienced piano teachers understand that adult learners have unique needs and goals. Whether you're a complete beginner or have some previous experience, we can tailor our classes to your individual needs and interests. We start our classes at the very beginning, so don't worry if it's been a while since you've played. Our classes cover a variety of musical genres, including classical, pop, jazz, and more, so that you can explore and develop your own musical tastes.

Play for FUN

In our recreational piano classes, we emphasize the joy of playing the piano and the benefits of music for adults. Studies have shown that playing music can reduce stress, enhance cognitive function, and promote overall well-being. We also believe that learning music is a lifelong journey, and our classes provide a space for adult learners to continue to grow and challenge themselves.

  • How do group piano classes differ from group music classes, and which one is more suitable for my child's needs?
    It is recommended that preschool students successfully complete at least one Music for Little Mozarts group class and/or the Introduction to Piano course before beginning Preschool Group Piano Classes. Music for Little Mozarts group classes are focused on general musicianship skills and do not require a student to practice piano outside of class. Students may take the Music for Little Mozarts classes as many times as they desire - there are 3 "levels" available, but they may be repeated if desired. Preschool Group Piano Classes do require practice with parental help outside of lessons, as do private lessons. If you do not yet own a piano, or cannot balance parent-led piano practice outside of lessons, the group Music for Little Mozarts classes would be the best fit. Families who are ready to commit to daily parent-led piano practice outside of lessons may join the Preschool Group Piano class.
  • How long are the group piano classes, and how often are they held?
    Preschool Group Piano Classes meet once per week for 40 minutes.
  • How much do group piano classes cost?
    Preschool group piano classes are $90 per month, or the semester may be paid in full for a small discount. This fee includes: - All weekly lessons - Access to online course materials - One in-class performance at the end of the semester ​ At enrollment, all students are assessed a $20 studio fee to help keep our studio running smoothly. ​ Parents are responsible for purchasing all necessary books and materials at the beginning of the semester. ​
  • Will the teacher provide materials such as sheet music and textbooks?
    Parents are responsible for purchasing all materials required for class. This may include, but is not limited to, music books, sheet music, flash cards, workbooks, plush characters, etc. Parents must have access to email and My Music Staff for weekly practice assignments.
  • What curriculum is used in the classes?
    Our group piano classes use the Music for Little Mozarts Piano Course to make the transition from Music for the Little Mozarts to piano classes familiar and FUN!
  • Can I drop my child off?
    Parents of preschool students are encouraged to attend the majority of their child's classes. Preschool students tend to need daily help practicing, so it is best to observe what we are playing during the lesson so that you can help them at home. You are always welcome to record any part of the lesson to refer back to it later.
  • Does my child need a piano?
    Yes. Students must have a piano in the home prior to enrolling in group piano classes. If you need recommendations for a first instrument, I will be happy to provide a list of acceptable instruments at various price points.
  • What is the level of commitment required for group piano classes, and is there a minimum enrollment period?
    Group Piano enrollment is for the semester (15 weeks.) Parents and students should be commited to practicing at least 15-20 minutes per day, 5 days per week outside of class.
  • Will my child have the opportunity to perform in public or participate in competitions?
    Preschool students enrolled in group piano classes will have a small in-class performace during the last class of the semester. Preschool group piano students are not eligible for competitions, adjudicated contests, or studio classes, but may join these events once they have entered 1st grade and enroll in traditional private piano lessons.
