Piano Lessons at Attacca

Beginners (6+)

Composition

Young Beginners (4-5)

For young children who start to show an interest in piano and playing, piano exposure lessons can be extremely fun and beneficial for capturing that initial inspiration! These lessons focus on hands on games, listening skills, numbers, the alphabet, and building motor skills. 

For students brand new to the piano but ready for more formal instruction, lessons are structured to individual goals and learning pace. Lessons focus on building a healthy technical foundation, fluency in notes and rhythm, playing duets, building confidence to perform, and much more!

For students with many years of playing experience and a solid foundation, lessons start to expand to exciting possibilities! With a wider variety of materials, these lessons start to expand a student's repertoire, enhance their technique, and bring to fruition long term playing goals!

Intermediate + Advanced

For students who often find themselves creating their own tunes, an additional focus on composition in lessons can enhance and harness this creativity! While many students improvise, composition entails learning the notation process of one's music.

Adult Lessons

Whether you are looking for a new hobby, have always wanted to learn piano, or are picking up previous piano studies, lessons at any age can be extremely gratifying! Also a great option for parents of young students who would like to be able to assist their kids at home with their practicing.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the recommended age to start?

Students below the age of 6 should consider young beginner classes. To begin formal private lessons, usually 6 is ideal but no age is too late to begin. Learning an instrument can bring great fulfillment starting from any age - including adulthood!

What kind of instrument should I have for lessons?

I require my students to have a full sized (88 keys) instrument - whether digital or acoustic, and a proper bench. Check out my amazon list of recommended digital keyboard options for beginners. For acoustic piano recommendations, please email me for more details!

What other equipment/materials will I need?

Besides a quality and well-fitted instrument, students will have books and materials that are provided by their teacher and covered by their tuition.

Should I be involved as a parent?

For young beginners and new students, parents are strongly encouraged to participate and take notes in classes to be able to assist in at home practicing. As students progress and become more independent, this involvement will turn to more general support.
