Whether you’re 5 or 50 lessons will be tailored to your needs, learning style, and pace. During lessons students will learn scales, arpeggios, music reading, and music theory for a well rounded understanding of the piano. At the end of every semester students will showcase their progress in a studio recital.

Sylvia is very good at taking the time to explain the reasons behind the why of doing certain things. Being an adult with no musical background what so ever she has really taken the time to teach me some basic fundamentals that are helping me build the solid foundation that I so very much want and need. Beyond the time we spend with one-on-one instructions she challenges me with exercises to practice on between our meetings. I explained to Sylvia what I was looking for and she has centered the training and instructions around that to ensure that my goals are being met. She is a pleasure to work with and learn from.
