Our Piano classes are designed to give our students the proper skills for success in this incredible instrument. These classes primarily focus on the important areas of their musical development such as: Technique (playing the instrument properly), musicianship (self-expression), musical literacy (reading music) and adequate repertoire (songs and pieces). Our program allows our students to experience music in all its forms.
