Keyboard Piano Lessons in Clayton, NC

Keyboard Instruction

Research shows that beginning to intermediate students learn as well or better in piano groups with electronic keyboards as students who take costlier private lessons (when a student reaches a certain proficiency in playing, however, private lessons are recommended).

  • 45 minute lesson - Class meets once weekly
  • Students are movitated to practice to keep up with others in the group
  • Students may practice silently with headphone, yet the teacher may listen to the student via headphone
  • The class will also play together (volume employed) as a small ensemble - exciting for the students!

Piano is an excellent first instrument for developing the musical skills of your child. Piano education will provide your child with a source of life-long joy and a sense of musical accomplishment.  And, the extra-musical scholastic benefits have been well documented through research!

Most students take a 30-minute individual lesson once a week.  That is enough time for the instructor to review the work from the previous week and go over and assign music for the upcoming week.  Decide today to begin lessons on this most versatile and loved instrument!
