about our piano program

Piano instruction is offered as a weekly 30, 45, or 60 minute private lesson. Beginner, intermediate, and advanced lessons are available in a variety of different styles such as classical/traditional, rock, jazz, Christian, and blues. Whatever style of piano you want to learn, our instructors are here to help you and customize a lesson plan for you. If you need a piano tuner, we highly recommend Eric Roberts of Springboro Piano Services.

beginner piano

Piano lessons for beginners of all ages will typically focus on a variety of exemplary method books. These are books are carefully crafted to be fun and engaging while instilling fundamentals such as note-reading, music theory, and technique. All of our instructors love teaching beginning students of all ages, and they provide a positive, encouraging environment for the student.

intermediate piano

Piano lessons for intermediate students will focus on expanding technique (scales), repertoire, theory, and musical refinement. Intermediate students are typically graduated out of using method books and starting to learn more complex pieces of music.

advanced piano

Piano lessons for advanced students will focus on cultivating advanced piano technique, repertoire, and musical refinement. Advanced students have a lot of experience and typically wish to take the next step towards becoming a professional musician. Our highly qualified instructors can help you achieve your goals, whether it be preparing for competitions, or for auditions to pursue music at the college level.
