How old does my child need to be to begin piano lessons?
Students may begin piano lessons in Kindergarten. For families that would like to pursue piano lessons for younger children, we recommend a trial lesson to determine readiness or a summer pre-piano camp or our programs designed specifically for younger children.
You are never too old to begin lessons!
Do you teach music lessons to adults?
When do you teach?
Every day of the week, by appointment.
Where are you located?
Lessons are in the White Rock Lake area of Northeast Dallas, near the intersection of Northwest Highway and Plano Road, conveniently located to Lake Highlands and Lakewood. Online piano lessons are also available!
Do you have recitals?
Absolutely! Every spring our students have the opportunity to perform in a beautiful hall with a grand piano. Unlike many competitors, we do not charge students a fee to perform, and admission is free! In December, students perform for each other in performance classes to practice their performing skills and recital manners. Recitals are optional.
How much does it cost to get started?
A non-refundable registration fee is due, along with the first month’s tuition, and tuition is then collected in monthly installments. Please contact the studio for current rates.
Are there any long-term commitments?
Lessons may be discontinued at any time with written notice. Simply complete a withdrawal form by the 15th of your last month! All fees and tuition already paid are non-refundable.
Can I take piano lessons on a keyboard?
This is probably one of our most frequently asked questions! You do not need a piano at home to take lessons; a simple full-size electronic keyboard will suffice. Many students begin lessons on a keyboard. When shopping, look for keyboards that are full sized, with graded and weighted keys.
How old does my child need to be to begin flute lessons?
