You can learn to play the piano and experience one of the most rewarding ways to start the study of music. Piano Lessons are a perfect start. The piano or keyboard is a visually linear instrument, as is the written language of music. This makes learning to read, write and play music more direct with the piano.
When you take piano lessons, with a qualified piano teacher, you are starting on the right track. Whether it is a child of 3 1/2 or an adult starting music study for the first time, piano lessons give you the right foundation. Here at the school, older children, or adults returning to piano lessons will find highly competent teachers and a fresh approach to their instrument.
Here your piano lessons clearly cover the fundamentals, as well more advanced concepts, and get you playing what YOU want to play, as quickly as possible.We begin formal piano lessons for children as young as 3 1/2, and beginners of all ages. If you are an adult, willing to “face your fears” about prior study in piano, we offer a safe place to fix where you left off.
To have the best success, look for the following things in a keyboard:
1. 88 keys
2. Sustain Pedal (when you hold it down, the sound rings out)
3. Touch sensitive keys (when you play harder, it sounds louder; when you play softly, it sounds quieter)
Our piano teachers are experienced pro performers, with up to 35 years teaching experience, who love to teach. Tuition is yearly. Some students pay by monthly installment. See tuition pricing here.
Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT WILL I LEARN IN PIANO LESSONS?
Our teachers understand that every student is an individual, with personal musical needs and goals. We make it a priority to tailor how we teach and what we teach to your individual needs.
If you enroll here for piano lessons, your teacher will ask you about your favorite type of music, and set goals to help accomplish whatever musical aspirations you have for yourself or your child. Together, you will develop a plan to achieve your goals! We love beginners, so even if you don't know where to begin, we can help!
WHAT STYLES OF MUSIC CAN I LEARN?
We teach all styles from rock, pop, jazz, r&b, country, worship, blues, classical and more. We combine the important fundamentals with the music YOU want to play. With 19 teachers at Boston School of Music & Creative Arts, you are sure to find that we are the best match for YOU.
ARE YOUR PIANO INSTRUCTORS QUALIFIED?
Our piano instructors are highly qualified, all have teaching experience, and most importantly, they have a passion for teaching. Being a musician doesn't automatically make you a teacher--that's why we search for those who are best qualified for mentoring our music students!
We search the entire area for the top teachers, who embody the high values at Boston School of Music & Creative Arts. Most importantly, our instructors strive to relate their teaching to each individual student's learning style. Many of our instructors have gone on performance tours of the USA and Europe and have years of professional performance and teaching experience. In addition to their teaching abilities, our teachers have warm personalities, are extremely friendly, and strive to get to know each student and their parent or caregiver on a personal level. We search high and low for the BEST teachers, so you don't have to!
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO LEARN TO PLAY PIANO?
There is no set answer of how long it takes to learn to play. With regular practice a basic level of playing can be accomplished in a few months. Most of our students take lessons on a long term basis because they want to be constantly improving and they find the lessons enjoyable.
I DON’T HAVE ANY MUSICAL BACKGROUND OR ABILITY. CAN I STILL HELP MY CHILD PRACTICE?
Yes. Even if you don't have a musical background you can ask the teacher for advice on how to help your child practice. By simply monitoring that they are doing exercises a certain number of times per day the student will progress. Parents will occasionally sit in on their child's music lesson to get an idea of the proper way a song should sound or how the student should be positioning their hands. We also send lesson notes weekly and sometimes create videos to help in the most effective way possible.
