Private Piano Lessons
Silver Music Studios has been providing private piano lessons for over twenty years to kids and adults of all ages and skill levels. Regardless of your age, your playing style, your experience level, and your goals, we can pair you with a teacher who is just right for you.
The piano is a popular choice for new musicians due to its enormous range and versatility. Unlike most other instruments, the piano can play both melody and accompaniment at the same time. Piano students learn both the treble and bass clefs, which are by far the two most popular clefs for written western music. Most electronic keyboards can be easily plugged into a computer for recording, and synthesizers can create an infinite variety of sounds. Plus, you can sing along!
Piano lessons for kids
Most of us begin learning music as children, when enthusiasm is high but technique is not. Silver Music Studios has teachers who can tap into and maintain the young student’s motivation, while gradually building the discipline and technique needed for success in the long run.
Piano lessons for adult beginners
The adult beginning music student has a different set of challenges. This student usually has plenty of patience and discipline and more familiarity with musical styles, but doesn’t have as much free time to practice and requires targeted piano lessons to build skills quickly.
Piano lessons for experienced players
Music is a lifelong pursuit, and we are ready to help even when you’re not a beginner anymore. A number of our students are performing musicians with ten or more years of experience. We’ll be with you when it is time to get into advanced music theory and techniques.
Silver Music Studios was founded to provide quality music instruction for everyone: beginners… experienced musicians… every age… every level… every style. We customize each piano lesson plan to each student. Our scheduling is flexible and we believe that piano lessons should be affordable for everyone.
I have been taking piano lessons for four years with Silver Music Studios. Studying the piano has made it easier to play the baritone in school. It has bee a great experience for me and a joy for my parents to hear me play and see me perform at the recitals.
The Silver Music Studios Fixed-Price Guarantee reflects our dedication to your growth as a musician.
Most studios raise their rates periodically; if you want the benefits of working with the same teacher, you find yourself spending more and more money for the same service. Silver Music Studios puts more value on the student-teacher relationship. The price you pay for your first piano lesson is the price you will pay for all of your piano lessons, for as long as you are a Silver Music Studios student.
We want to encourage, not discourage, our students to stick with us! See Studio Policies for details and restrictions.

My two boys (2nd and 3rd graders) have been taking piano lessons at Silver Music Studios for 2 years. We love it!!! Their teacher is patient, enthusiastic, encouraging and fun. My boys are such different learners and their instructor seamlessly adapts to their needs. Every year Silver Music Studio puts on a recital for all of their students. It is such a wonderful experience for them to perform in front of a supportive audience. They have been taught that hard work and practice pays off! Great life lessons!
