Our music school offers the most well-rounded piano lessons in Baltimore, where students learn essential concepts like finger placement, scales and rhythm, while working their way up to playing popular songs, recording in the lesson room, performing, and gaining confidence. It all goes back to our motto – Learn. Perform. Record. Through recitals and our band programs, students can build on the skills they learn in weekly one-on-one lessons and take them to the stage.
Students will gain a love for keyboard (or piano) by playing songs they know while learning basic concepts such as scales, rhythm and finger placement. During weekly lessons at our facility just outside of Baltimore, our enthusiastic instructors keep it fun as they teach students how to become versatile keyboard and piano players.
As students advance in their skills, instructors take them more in-depth in technique, theory and improvisation, and introduce more complex compositions to students’ repertoires. Instructors will help students move forward in their composition, performance and recording skills, and students will have multiple opportunities to showcase these new skills at recitals and band performances.
