Philadelphia has a rich musical history and is home to one of the nation’s top five orchestras and the Philly Pop. The city’s arts and culture make it an ideal place to be when thinking about learning how to play an instrument like the piano. Piano is one of the most popular instruments in the world and is often used in orchestras as well as for accompaniment, composing, and rehearsal. The versatility of the piano will allow you to explore almost any genre of music, including jazz, classical, pop, rock and R&B.
The piano is a common instrument to start out on, but it’s essential to begin with the right foundation. Nearly all self-taught pianists never advance beyond an early-intermediate stage; that is why it is so important to get attention and feedback from a qualified teacher. Not sure where to find that perfect instructor? TakeLessons is here to help!

Learning piano can be a deeply gratifying experience, no matter your age! My students receive a well-rounded and enriching musical cultivation. Beginners will learn from a method book that is well suited for their own learning style. More advanced students can expect to traverse the rich piano repertory, but I also maintain an element of technical study in my lessons. Students will learn the fundamentals of music theory and how they can be applied to piano study. Those interested in learning other styles such as jazz, pop, and rock can explore those areas as well.
