Every effort has been made to provide my children with instructors who fit their learning styles. From weekly lessons to public performances and recitals, we have had great experiences!”

faqs
how old must my child be to start lessons?

We start at the age of 3 and have done so successfully since 1971, and our young children do much more than silly scarf-waving. Although very young children may not be able to read yet, all children respond to symbols at a very young age. With the right materials presented in the right sequence with the right motivation by the right teachers, very young children can certainly be successful in piano lessons

do you teach adults or am I too old to learn?

We absolutely teach adults and are proud to say we have a large and active population of adult learners of all ages and levels. In fact, we have literally written the book for adult beginners that guarantees you will be making music during your first lesson. Played in the past, but not for a long time? We’ve got you covered. Really advanced and just need some coaching? We do that, too.

do I need a piano at home to take lessons?

Really, it depends on the lessons! For our introductory Conservatory Sampler class, no piano is needed, as we spend ample time in the lesson playing on actual full-sized acoustic pianos. For private lessons, a full-sized acoustic or digital piano (88 weighted, touch-sensitive keys and a pedal) is required. Small table-top keyboards and other “toys” will be a waste of your time and money within a few short months.

Is there free parking at this location?

Yes! We’re located in the Arlington Falls business center so there is plenty of parking availble.
