#4 - a proven track record of excellence

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 lessons in Dallas, Texas year round. Other instruments are available too! Our full time mission is teaching music lessons  trusted by families.

Dallas Piano Academy Recital

#5 - free music recitals with no participation fees!

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 year we host several recitals and performance opportunities, and 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. 

Piano Girl with Awards

#6 - trophies, certificates and awards to celebrate achievement

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!

plus...we're a Safe music school

Dallas Piano Academy is a proud member of The Family Safety Plan. Because safety is one of our top priorities, Dallas Piano Academy has taken the pledge to do all that we can to keep our students and employees safe. This includes having glass windows on every door of every classroom to foster transparency between the teachers and parents, always having office staff present so that students are never left alone with teachers, having all teachers and staff members undergo extensive background checks, security cameras in every classroom and an open door policy for parents, which means that they're invited to sit in on their child's lessons at any time. We view this as a necessary measure to preserve the safety and integrity of our academy.


"Lisa and her team are first rate! They have a very attentive staff that cater to the unique needs of the student and are great with any questions or customer service. Go try 'em out!" - L.S.

"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!" - D.R.
