Adult students – beginners and those picking back up from previous study – are encouraged to sign up. Adult students can choose from any category of lessons offered – weekly, biweekly/monthly, virtual, or any of the standard weekly lesson options.
Lessons at a glance:
Lessons can be taken in the standard monthly format (once a week) or can be purchased in class packs of 4, 8, or 10. Class packs are usable anytime until they run out.
Adult students have the advantage of setting their own pace and goals. Method books are recommended, but supplementary songs and projects are also a valuable way to utilize lesson time and learn different styles. Students are encouraged to find their niche, be it classical, rock, or contemporary.
Semester recitals are a great way to meet the other adult students and have performance goals and opportunities. These take place every Fall, Christmas, and Spring in a casual setting with food and beverages. While not a requirement for lessons, most adult students value the camaraderie and goal-setting that recitals provide.
Lesson Option: Virtual Lessons
Given that for some students, the ability to travel to a teacher for piano study is difficult, virtual video lessons are offered for the dedicated student who has moved into an intermediate level of playing. These lessons have been very successful for many students. Video capability and broadband are a requirement.
