FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS...

WHAT DO YOU LEARN IN YOUR MUSIC LESSONS?

That question is often asked by prospective students. Our teachers make it a priority to get to know you on a personal level and to become familiar with your personal musical desires and goals.

We do not treat every student the same in terms of what and how we teach.

A seven year old having their first guitar lesson will have very different needs than a fifty seven year old taking up piano for the second time after having had lessons as a child.

The main reason to choose our music school as your music lesson provider, is that we are sensitive to the fact that every student is an individual.

If you enroll here for lessons, we will work with you to make a plan that will fit your needs and musical preferences. At the first lesson your teacher will ask you about your favorite type of music, and set goals to help accomplish whatever musical aspirations you have for yourself or your child.

Each studio is equipped with a Bose™ sound system, so we encourage our students to bring their ipods, smart phones and/or ipads with their favorite songs, plug in to our Bose™ sound systems and learn to play the songs they want to play!

PIANO LESSONS
(for ages 5 and up)

We teach piano lessons for kids and adults in the Scranton, PA and Clarks Summit area. In piano lessons, our piano teachers teach styles from classical to jazz to pop, rock and ragtime. If you want to learn Bach or Alicia Keys, our teachers are happy to help you become the pianist you want to be. Our piano faculty will show you the fundamentals of sight reading, technique and theory, but they will also incorporate your favorite songs into your keyboard lessons. You do not have to have a piano at home to take lessons. A simple full size electronic keyboard will suffice for the first six months. We recommend a keyboard that has regular sized keys and a touch sensitive response. A touch sensitive keyboard means if you press a key harder it will play louder and if you press a key softer it will play quieter. Our piano teachers have warm personalities and enjoy sharing their love for the piano with you. Watch this video to learn more about our piano lessons.
