new albany / gahanna reviews

“Both of my children started taking lessons at The Conservatory of Piano when they were 3 years old. They are now 14 and 11 and I couldn’t ask for a better musical learning experience for my kids. The teachers get to know the children and are able to cater their teaching to each child’s strengths and learning style. My kids are learning music theory not learning to read and play notes on a page. I highly recommend piano lessons at The Conservatory of Piano!”

“All the teachers are just amazing! They really find what works best for each child! I have a child with some behavior issues and they have worked with her and always have such patience with her and all my kids!
We just love it here!!!!”

“We were enrolled here and due to a move, switched to their other location. Same deal: my kids are happy, having fun, playing a lot! This location is smaller than their other one, but still cool-all the teachers really know all the students and had my kids playing some songs together-without them griping about it. Recitals are fun–much better than most of the kids activities we have been to.”

“I’ve had the pleasure and privilege of working with the folks at The Conservatory of Piano and they certainly go above and beyond. They are serious and fun at the same time. And their unique, individualized teaching methods help you reach your development goals. When it comes to Piano Lesson in Columbus OH, The Conservatory is the real deal.”

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 Albany Square Shopping Center, so there is plenty of parking available and we are Handicap Accessible.
