The Piano Studio

Lessons are taught in a quiet and comfortable home studio on a new Kawai baby grand piano. Parents and siblings are always welcome to stay provided they don't disturb the lesson. In addition, students have access to a music library which provides fun supplemental music beyond their lesson, theory and technique books.

Performance Opportunities

Students have the opportunity to perform for their community. This December piano students played for residents in assisted-living homes around the Twin Cities. At the end of the school year we have a formal spring recital in which students can play for parents, grandparents and friends. Students are also provided an opportunity to play in the annual Association of Professional Piano Instructors (APPI) festival. Students perform piano pieces for judges and are critiqued in a positive manner. All recital and performance opportunities are completely voluntary.
