"Life is like a piano. What you get out of it, depends on how you play it." Tom Lehrer
The Music Box offers a wide variety of learning styles to its piano students at all levels. Private piano students can enroll in a weekly 30 minute lesson. Weekly piano lessons include a combination of learning scales & melodies, music theory education, ear training, sight reading, composition & improvisation, and critical thinking skills. Our beginning piano students are encouraged to grow into independent, creative musicians in a positive learning environment. Traditional students build their skills using the Piano Adventures, or The Music Tree books. Many of our intermediate/advanced level piano students are also enrolled in voice, to explore self accompanied performance development. Teacher's offer custom arrangements so our students are not limited to standard arrangements or song keys. While learning the song, students will work on music theory as it relates to the songs. The diverse backgrounds of the piano instructors provides a guarantee that every student can find the best path for their own musical development.
The qualified and patient piano teachers are university educated and have years of on-stage experience. Our primary goal is to keep our students curious about music while providing them the tools for creativity. Piano playing styles include pop, rock, country, jazz, Christian contemporary, and classical music.
