Piano lessons are taught one on one to focus on a child’s individual needs. Piano lessons help preserve and develop children’s natural creative abilities and can help children learn to stay focused and achieve goals. Our classes suite both, beginners and advanced students. Students learn to read musical sheets, get a feeling for rhythm, and of course how to play songs. Playing piano develops coordination in both mind and muscles, which transfers to many daily activities. This can lead to improved hand-eye coordination, greater enjoyment and ability in sports, and the full use of both left and right sides of the brain.
