PIANO LESSONS

The piano is one of the most popular instruments of musical study. It is a musical instrument played using a keyboard. It a versatile instrument is often used in classical and jazz music for a solo performance or as part of an ensemble. This versatile instrument is also used in chamber music and pop music as an accompaniment and for composing.

Our school offers in-person and online piano lessons for students of all ages and abilities from beginners to very advanced students. We offer every style of piano lessons from classical, jazz and pop. We have students who want to play just for fun and students who wish to excel. We start piano lessons at any age from age 5 onwards.  Our private piano lessons are one-on-one instruction and lesson lengths are 30 minutes or 1 hour. For our advanced piano students we have teachers with master’s degrees in music who can prepare them for university entrance. 

As we have so many piano teachers on staff we are able to match students with a teacher that works best with their particular age, ability and interest. 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. Your lessons will include the fundamentals of sight reading, technique and theory but will also incorporate your favorite songs into your lessons. If you do not have a piano at home, a full size keyboard will be sufficient for the first 6 months. Our piano teachers have warm personalities and enjoy sharing their love of the piano.

Frequently Asked Questions


WHAT WILL I LEARN IN PIANO LESSONS?


Our teachers understand that every student is an individual, with personal musical needs and goals. We make it a priority to tailor how we teach and what we teach to your individual needs.

If you enroll here for piano lessons, your teacher will ask you about your favorite type of music, and set goals to help accomplish whatever musical aspirations you have for yourself or your child. Together, you will develop a plan to achieve your goals! We love beginners, so even if you don't know where to begin, we can help!

DO I NEED A PIANO AT HOME TO TAKE PIANO LESSONS?

A: It is ideal if you do have a piano at home, but you can start lessons by using an electric keyboard to practice on. Most of our students rent or buy small electric keyboards practice on at home. We recommend a keyboard that has regular sized keys and a touch sensitive response. A touch sensitive keyboard means if you press a key harder it will play louder and if you press a key softer it will play quieter.


WHAT STYLES OF MUSIC CAN I LEARN?

We teach all styles from rock, pop, jazz, country, worship, blues and classical. We combine the important fundamentals with the music YOU want to play. With multiple teachers at the Edison School of Music and Dance, you are sure to find we are the best match for YOU.


ARE YOUR PIANO INSTRUCTORS QUALIFIED?

Our piano instructors are highly qualified, all have teaching experience, and most importantly, they have a passion for teaching. Being a musician doesn't automatically make you a teacher--that's why we search for those who are best qualified for mentoring our music students!

We search the entire area for the top teachers, who embody the high values at Edison School of Music & Dance. Most importantly, our instructors strive to relate their teaching to each individual student's learning style. Many of our instructors have gone on performance tours of the USA and Europe and have years of professional performance and teaching experience. In addition to their teaching abilities, our teachers have warm personalities, are extremely friendly, and strive to get to know each student and their parent or caregiver on a personal level. We search high and low for the BEST teachers, so you don't have to!

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO LEARN TO PLAY PIANO?

There is no set answer of how long it takes to learn to play. With regular practice a basic level of playing can be accomplished in a few months. Most of our students take lessons on a long term basis because they want to be constantly improving and they find the lessons enjoyable.


I DON’T HAVE ANY MUSICAL BACKGROUND OR ABILITY. CAN I STILL HELP MY CHILD PRACTICE?

Yes. Even if you don't have a musical background you can ask the teacher for advice on how to help your child practice. By simply monitoring that they are doing exercises a certain number of times per day the student will progress. Parents will occasionally sit in on their child's music lesson to get an idea of the proper way a song should sound or how the student should be positioning their hands. We also send lesson notes weekly and sometimes create videos to help in the most effective way possible.
