Piano Classes

Have you ever wished you had taken piano when you were younger or continued with lessons years later? Well now you can!

In our state-of-the-art piano lab, students sit at their own keyboard and work with the teacher and one another on a group lesson. You'll also have the opportunity to work on your own with the personal support of your instructor.

If you're brand new to the piano, or to reading sheet music for the left and right hands, start with Piano 1: Introduction to Piano.
