Piano and Voice Lessons
At The Piano Place we love music, we love to play music, and we love to help you do the same. We want you to play the music you enjoy and to help you learn the skills and enough theory to take you to the level you want to achieve.
We provide opportunities for you to share your love of music and your favorite pieces with your family and friends and with residents in our community nursing homes at recitals held in December and May. We hold two piano parties a year to share with one another the joy of music learning. Opportunities are also available to participate in piano activities, festivals and competitions. The decision to take advantage of these opportunities is left to each student and his or her family.

Piano lessons cost $25 per half hour weekly lesson, $50 per hour lesson. Students are expected to purchase their music through The Piano Place (about $50 per year depending upon how quickly the student progresses)
Lessons are usually weekdays in the afternoon or early evening. Home school students and adult lessons can be held during the morning or early afternoon.
How long do students need to practice in order to get the best results from piano lessons?
For beginning students practicing for 1/2 hour a day is recommended, 2 sessions of 15 minutes is actually better than one straight half hour. More advanced students and those taking hour lessons will need more practice. Playing on a piano, and not a keyboard, is best for developing hand muscles and coordination.
Lessons provide new concepts, guidance, suggestions for how and what to practice, and agreed upon goals, but most learning takes place during the week at home. Parental involvement and positive support is essential for children to get the most out of their practice time.
