School-age and adult students at Piano Plus Teaching Studio are often surprised by how quickly they’re playing melodies and songs. Because lessons are tailored to each person’s goals as well as their  needs, students typically learn “popular/favorite music” along with their method-based instruction. In addition to learning proper technique, students develop other essential skills – some of which include guided listening, reading, chord playing and improvising. Piano Lessons are offered on a weekly basis in time intervals of 30, 45 and 60 minutes.

school-age Students

School-age students most often use the word "fun" to describe their learning experiences at Piano Plus. Parents appreciate the balanced teaching approach that encourages optimal challenge within a relaxed and supportive learning environment.

Adult Students

Whether they're starting from scratch or returning to lessons after some time away, adult learners are welcome at Piano Plus! While most students are primarily interested in playing for their own enjoyment, others prefer to concentrate on developing specific skills or, perhaps, exploring new styles of music (e.g., Classical, Jazz, Broadway, Blues, etc.). Each person's path is unique.

I began taking piano lessons with Scott when I was in my mid- fifties. He has been a great teacher, very encouraging and accommodating. And, contrary to the adage, he has been able to “teach and old dog new tricks.
