Group piano lessons are noncompetitive as students work on their own pace. Any student of different levels can join the class. Each has their own piano and should wear headphones during class time. They do worksheets and piano play with music accompaniment. Having a group class and hearing other kids play, will make kids motivated to learn.
*We also provide private piano instruction for all ages and levels.
