Welcome back for another exciting year of piano and music!!!!  You will make new friends at theory and repertoire classes who play piano. Learning piano is difficult but rewarding. Piano lessons benefit from the support of family, a good quality, well-tuned instrument, and your commitment of time and energy to the project. You will learn how to read music, perform different genre of music,, and use your hands and body effectively. It is a wonderful adventure, and a life-long activity.
