We are proud of our 5 star Google reviews! Visit our website's testimonial page to see what our students and parents are saying about our music lessons. Every year, aspiring music teachers start their own studio, and a year or two later it’s closed. The Academy has a proven track record of offering quality music, piano, voice, guitar and flute lessons in Dallas, Texas year round. Our full time mission is teaching music lessons trusted by families.
We are one of the only music schools in Dallas that offers free recitals with a grand piano in a first class facility.
Every parent just wants to know how their child is doing and if they are really progressing. The best way for a parent to understand if their investment in kid piano lessons is really worth it, is to have their child participate in a recital. Each spring many of our students choose to perform in a spotlight recital. We hold these in a beautiful setting with a grand piano. We even hold optional recitals just for our adult students!
Many of our students also choose to attend our periodic small group classes where they have an opportunity to perform for their peers.
Students work towards goals and earn prizes as they grow in their music study! One of the incentives we offer to children is the Musical Ladder System®, an international, licensed program that gives students the opportunity to earn special color wristband bracelets (kids and teens love them!), trophies, AND certificates for passing musical tests. Do other schools offer trophies and certificates? A few. But none of them inspire their students with smiling faces by giving them full color, really cool "Musical Ladder" wristbands that they can show off to their friends.
When students have an incentive coming up, they practice more, their parents are proud, their teachers are proud, and everybody wins!
We are Dallas piano teachers that include the first piano lesson books and materials for their students, which saves students money when getting started with beginning lessons!
The Dallas Piano Academy is also home to an extensive piano music library, giving piano students an additional savings as well as access to many hard to find and out of print musical gems.
Your time is valuable, and you need answers right away!
We are a music school in Dallas that offers professional and personal customer service for their students throughout the week to assist you with questions about your lessons, schedule and account. We pledge that you will always receive a response within 24 hours (or sooner!)
As a music school in Dallas, we are able to offer 'full service' music lessons. This allows us to offer piano lessons during the day and we see many students between the hours of 11 a.m.- 2 p.m. If you are a home school parent, retiree, college student or working professional adult who has a flexible schedule, take advantage of instruction during our late morning and lunch time lesson spots that are available by appointment.
We are proud to offer lessons in voice, and are the only studio in the area licensed to offer the Singers Edge Curriculum! We have voice lessons for children through adults and because we don't require a long term contract, we can help with short term goals such as preparing for an audition or special performance.
Lessons are also available for guitar and flute, and more instruments are in the process of being added.
Have a request for lessons on a particular instrument? Let us know!
The Academy does not require semester minimums for lessons. Every student here is on a month-to-month basis. Lessons can be discontinued at any time with two weeks notice.
If you are ready to start, you have nothing to lose as we only want students who truly want to be here and we will not commit you to a long term contract.
We are proud to be one of the first music schools in the country to take the pledge to be a safe music school AND save the music! We follow current safety guidelines and employ cleaning measures to help stop the spread of Covid as well as other illnesses.
"I love this music school! They offer piano, singing, guitar and more. The front staff is very friendly and welcoming. It is a multi-generational family run program and it feels very family oriented. My 9 year old daughter loves Jeraldine, she is the best. They provide concerts for families where all of the instructors show up and I think that is the highlight of these lessons for us. I would highly recommend!" - H.L.
"I just wanted to send you a note to tell you how great you are at making Dallas Piano Academy a wonderful place for (my child) to learn music. Your communication is excellent, and the whole process is so easy and no headache. I’m always charmed when I get to stop by at the studio; it reminds me SO much of where I learned Piano as a kid and always brings a smile to my face with memories of small town, simple, supportive community life. Thank you for all you do!" - C.R.
"Lisa was my first piano teacher as a kid and I can't recommend her enough. At the time, I was only interested in playing film music, not repertoire. Most piano teachers have a firmly one-dimensional approach, but Lisa encouraged my interests and provided a foundation that gave me a firm grasp of the basics while also allowing me branch out and be creative. I work in Los Angeles now as a film composer. Lisa is the best!" - David R.
"If I could give Mrs. Emmick more than 5 stars, I would! Both my son and daughter were students of Mrs. Emmick. My son began at 7 years old and just graduated high school, being taught by Mrs. Emmick the entire time. She fostered in him a love of music. She was a gentle, kind teacher, but also had high standards. Her personality is a joy! Piano was my daughters secondary instrument and under Mrs. Emmick's direction, she quickly became a proficient piano player. They both learned a variety of music and play beautifully. Not only is Mrs. Emmick an incredibly gifted instructor, she is an amazing musician as well. We are grateful to her for pouring into our children and highly recommend her! " - Gina F.
The ability to play an instrument or sing beautifully offers a lifetime of benefits. Music lessons also foster a student’s personal, social, and academic development. Dallas Piano Academy has made substantial investments in our materials and elite faculty to provide an uplifting environment designed to foster creativity, confidence and joy.
At Dallas Piano Academy you'll find:
If you’ve been told you are tone deaf or uncoordinated, I’m here to inform you that everyone can improve their musical skills. As a musician and teacher, I've witnessed countless students transform their lives in ways they never imagined possible. We make it our mission to help Dallas students explore and develop their talents, wherever their curiosity and interests lead them.
