Private Lessons

Private lessons are offered to beginning and intermediate students at the rate of $72 for 4 weeks, 8 weeks minimum so the total fee is $144.00. Each weekly session is 25 min. long at the studio (course no. 501A). The cost is $126 for 4 weeks or $252.00 for 8 weeks total fee if each weekly session is 50 min. long (course no. 501B). Materials needed for the lessons are included at no additional cost.

All students, young and old, start playing the piano by using proper fingering techniques and learning to sight-read music while training their ears to recognize intervals and rhythm. 
The piano studio
 has a warm environment for young and older children and we believe it is more important for them to
have a positive experience with music, rather than a strict atmosphere. All lessons are taught by a piano instructor with extensive experience in teaching children. He also has a special teaching credential for older adults from the state of California.

Openings are available in the morning (Sat.), in the afternoon (Mon., Tues. & Wed.), and in the evening (Mon., Wed. Fri. & Sat.). The studio is closed on Thursdays & Sundays. Enrollment is LIMITED and prepayment for each 8-week period is required. Unlike group classes, private lessons can start any time throughout the year (except school breaks).The first step is to schedule an appointment to meet the instructor at the studio and find out if private lessons is right for you or your kids.

Private lessons can also be scheduled on a per session basis as needed. The cost is $21 for a 25 min. session (course no. 601A) and $35 for a 50 min. session (course no. 601B). Instructions only and no materials are included in the fee. Please send a text or email message to schedule the lesson time.
 
The Piano Studio has an excellent acoustic piano, four full-sized 88-key digital pianos, five 76-key digital pianos, and many 61-key touch response keyboards available for students' use at the studio. Students decide what they want to learn based on their interest and skill level. Both adults and minors are welcome. Most children start their lessons at ages 5 to 7 but a few start at age 4 and it's never too late to start learning how to play the piano. Currently 40 students are currently taking private lessons at the studio every week including 30 kids. They range from 4-7 year-olds, pre-teens, teenagers, to young and older adults. Students under 14 years of age are required to have a responsible adult present during private lessons.
