When I was a kid taking piano lessons, I had a teacher who wanted me to play Under the Sea from Ariel. I told my teacher I didn’t like that song and I didn’t want to play it. I remember her chuckling and saying, “Well...you have to.”

How kids can learn the songs they actually want to play...
​...way sooner!

Well, I didn’t actually quit. I asked my mom if I could have a different teacher. She was supportive and set me up with another teacher.

This new teacher, a jazz player, taught me to improvise music and basically play whatever I was interested in. I developed a real love of the piano with that teacher and today, I teach my students the first improv exercise he taught me.

So I quit!


The Piano Lab

The Piano Lab Program is an hour long, once a week program for students ages 6-18.

In this program, students learn more songs per week than the average lesson, have an easier time practicing at home, and develop the independence to teach themselves songs they want to play.

  • Students can learn Disney, Star Wars, holiday, pop, and movie music within the first year
  • Double the typical time spent with a music teacher every week
  • All music is learned with the teacher so practice at home is easy
  • Students each move at their own individual pace
  • Students learn how to be independent at the piano
  • Students learn how to write music and make their own versions of songs
  • Students develop skill at the piano much faster. No more getting stuck on one song for weeks
  • Student recitals twice a year with no extra cost
