The Conservatory of Piano logo

Since last March and the outbreak of covid-19, The Conservatory has taught almost 10,000 lessons, completely online! Whether a beginner or an old pro returning to the piano, we do it best because it’s all we do!

Dear Conservatory Students, Parents, and Friends,

As we approach the one-year anniversary of the colossal life alteration of the pandemic, what new adjectives could we possibly add?! Here we are and it appears that despite turning the calendar on a new year, not much has changed. The Conservatory is so very fortunate to be able to continue almost uninterrupted teaching lessons and just being with our students every week.

We all miss our in-person interactions and we so look forward to the day when we can all be together again and connect in our lobby. I am so proud and pleased with the progress and success our teachers and staff have achieved with our students throughout the year; we learn more with every lesson and get better and better at providing the best piano (and voice) instruction in not just Columbus, but in the country and the world – we now have students from several states, European countries, and African countries – who could have imagined?

Kudos to all of our students too who have risen to the enormous challenges of learning on-line. From our youngest (age 4) to our oldest (age 82), the adjustment has been both rapid and amazingly successful and we are all still having fun doing what we love!

We had hoped to reopen for in-person lessons with the start of the new year, but regrettably, that is not to be. For the safety, health, and well-being of both our staff and our students, and their families, we believe it is best to continue with our online lessons for the foreseeable future.

We thank all of you for facilitating our successful transition to this entirely new platform, and for inviting us into your homes every week. We remain positive…this cannot last forever!

How are we doing?

We have been successfully teaching thousands of lessons during this crisis, and are happy to provide continuity to our students during these troubled times. As always, the best compliment is a nice review, and they are truly appreciated.
