Private Lessons

Private lessons are offered to beginning and intermediate students at the rate of $188.00 for 8 weeks. Each weekly session is 25 min. long at the studio (course no. 501A).
The cost is $328.00 for 8 weeks 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 students 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 is also a piano instructor at Grossmont Adult Education and has a special teaching credential for older adults from the state of California.

Currently, there are limited openings in the morning on Mondays and in the afternoon & evening on Mon., Tues., Wed., Fri. & Sat. Please send an email to the instructor to find out the latest openings as they change from time to time. 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 with the instructor at the studio and find out if private lessons are right for you or your kids.
 
The Piano Studio has an excellent acoustic piano, five full-sized 88-key digital pianos, five 76-key digital pianos, and two 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 between ages 5 and 7 but a few start at age 4 and it's never too late to start learning how to play the piano. Currently, more than 45 students are taking private lessons at the studio every week including 35 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.
