Market Street Music Conservatory offers piano lessons to players of all ages and skill levels. From Pre-Piano classes to classes for adults to private lessons for ages 6 and older.
Piano instruction fosters a lifelong love of piano playing by emphasizing proper technique, expression, note reading, rhythms, theory and improvisation all within the setting you prefer, private or group instruction.
Prep Piano Classes
Prep piano classes are offered for ages 4-6. Students will experience a comprehensive approach to musical learning while using the piano. This traditional approach emphasizes note reading, rhythm, creative expression, and activities and games on and off the bench.
Music Makers At the Keyboard
This group piano teaching method for young beginners features a variety of activities which lay the foundation for keyboard success. The program features an aural approach to music learning and teaching piano, building on songs children have come to love. This provides a natural pathway to reading music while building a much-loved piano repertoire.
Private lessons are offered for 30, 45, or 60 minutes lengths. (Approval and recommendation from instructor is needed for 45 and 60 minutes). Lessons are available for in-person or Zoom.
In addition to weekly private lessons, the study plan also includes regular group classes each quarter. All students (not including Zoom students) will participate in group lessons. During group weeks the group class will take the place of the private lesson. See the calendar for group lesson weeks. Times will be scheduled by the instructor. The classes are grouped by students of similar age and/or level and provide a social environment for group activities that include music theory related games, ear training, ensemble playing, rhythm activities and creative expression. Students will also have opportunity to perform for each other in an informal setting. There is no additional charge for extra time on group weeks.
