Shared Lessons

Marcus and Mickayla enrolled in shared lessons in Summer 2020. We covered skills needed to perform in an ensemble, learn to listen to one another, count together, and balance the melody and accompaniment parts. We also play a variety of music theory and music history games and activities.

Parent-Child Duets

Mila and her mother enrolled in a couple of shared lessons together prior to our Halloween Recital in 2020. While Mila and her mother both take private lessons as well, the occasional shared lesson allows us to prepare music they can play together! Such a valuable experience for them both!

Adult Lessons

We teach many adult students with a variety of backgrounds in music and piano. Some of our adult students took piano lessons as a child, and others are coming to the piano for the very first time. Here is Anthony, performing a Halloween piece after only 2 months of piano lessons!


We assist students through the various stages of writing their own music. Marcus picked a key, chose a series of beautiful chords, a time signature, and experimented with various octaves and styles between his hands. Here is Marcus, performing his very first composition: "Twilight Bloom"!
