Maybe you have heard of it?
Our Conservatory Sampler is the best start in piano education for any age.
For nearly 53 years, our award-winning methodology has launched the musical journeys of over 10,000 children and adults. We teach the building blocks of playing the piano and reading music cleverly disguised as fun.
sampler for children
This piano class is different than most music programs that simply wave scarves, bang rhythm instruments or press color-coded keys. Our students actually begin making music on the piano in their very first class and experience music through our unique teaching methods which are based on the art and science of reading music. It’s perfect for the beginner.
sampler for teens
We have combined the important aspects of Sampler for Children with the accelerated pace of the Sampler for Adults to develop a class for beginning teens.
This is about more than just rote-learning the latest pop song. There is an actual methodology, and music reading skills are taught. The goal is to read the music and play songs of all styles.
sampler for adult beginners
If you look at a page of music and go “huh?”, this is the class for you! Whether you are 23 or 103, we have literally written the book to get you started, and have almost 50 years of experience to back us up.
This class meets once per week with an emphasis on learning the building blocks of reading music while playing the piano for your own enjoyment. No previous knowledge is required or expected.
“i used to play piano” sampler
Has it been awhile? Want to get back into playing the piano? We have a class for you, too! As a version of our Adult Sampler, this class will refresh your abilities and present new skills, all with a grown-up slant. You’ll want to practice for this one, so a piano (acoustic or digital) is necessary.
In just a few months my 6-year-old son has made amazing progress and still loves to practice piano every day. The Conservatory has carefully thought out and unique pedagogy to take students from absolutely no musical experience to playing real songs quickly.
Our two boys, 7 and 11, attended the Conservatory of Piano for 4 and 6 years, respectively. We had to leave Ohio this year for my husband’s next job and after sampling the piano instruction at in the music program at the State’s flag ship University, School of Music, I have come to fully appreciate how truly remarkable the instruction is at the the Conservatory.
