How qualified are The Academy's piano instructors?
Our piano faculty have received their musical education from such prestigious institutions as well as piano performance and pedagogy programs. Many have toured the US and Europe, and bring over 25 years of professional performance and teaching experience to your lessons.
What will I learn from piano lessons at the Academy?
Whether you want to learn Bach or Alicia Keys, our teachers are dedicated to helping you become the pianist you want to be. They will show you the fundamentals of sight reading, technique and theory, and incorporate your favorite songs into your lessons.
Do I have to know how to read music?
No. Beginners are welcome!
Do I need a piano to learn the instrument?
No, you do not need a piano at home to take lessons. A simple full size electronic keyboard will suffice for the first 6 months. We offer a variety of keyboards appropriate for beginners, starting at just $100.00 or feel free to rent one from us ($27 per month)
Are there piano recitals?
Absolutely! Every Winter and Spring, our students have the opportunity to perform in world class recital halls with Steinway and Yamaha pianos. Unlike most of our competitors, we do not charge students a fee to perform. And admission is free, so you can invite all of your family and friends.
At each recital, we do raise donations (contributions are optional) for our local non profits. We believe that philanthropy and music go hand in hand. Since our inception, we've donated over $1,000 to help under privileged students have access to music education in need in the San Diego.
