Most students will have a general background rooted in the classics supplemented by student favorites, where available. Students start out in method books with accompanying theory, ear training and composition.
About Mary O.

The O. Music Studio is now accepting students for the upcoming school year in its Fairfax location. This location has served Northern Virginia for over 30 years. Piano lessons are changing with the times! iPad apps are available now to help learn during the lesson and at home during daily practice. Each lesson includes a review of music practiced at home, an overview of assignments for the following week, theory, technique, ear training and sight reading. If you are a transfer student, please bring your most recent method book(s) and notebook to the first lesson. Prospective students must have a piano, organ or electric keyboard to use for daily practice. I look forward to meeting you and having another great year!
