Our piano teachers teach a variety of styles from classical to popular music. Whether you want to learn Bach or Alicia Keys, our teachers are happy to help you become the pianist you want to be. Our piano faculty will help you with sight-reading, technique and theory, but they will also incorporate your favorite songs into your lessons. You do not have to have a piano at home to take lessons. A simple, full size electronic keyboard (one that simulates piano action) will suffice for the first few years. Our piano teachers have warm personalities and enjoy sharing their love for the piano with you.
The Academy of Music offers both a traditional and non-traditional approach to piano instruction. In addition, we offer a piano transitions class for preschoolers and kindergartners to help prepare them for more formal piano instruction.
our non-traditional approach
trains musicians who can hear what they play and play what they hear. Lesson activities apply what current research
says about how children best learn music and encourage students to listen,
think, move, sing, and play.
Transitions Class is designed for 4-5-year-olds (Preschool, Young Fives or
Kindergartners) to help prepare them for the Academy piano program.
Weekly 45-minute classes include singing, chanting, moving, responding to
musical patterns, creating at the keyboard, and playing short pieces.
Activities are developmentally appropriate and help lay a strong musical
foundation. Classes help students organize and imitate musical patterns
in music, sing in tune, move with the beat, and develop beginning piano
technique and keyboard skills using rote instruction.
