Passion. For generations the piano was at the heart of culture. During the 1920’s, there was a piano in forty percent of American homes. Now there is a piano in five percent of American homes! Our ambition is to rekindle the passion our culture once enjoyed in making music. We hope to accomplish this one student at a time.
Inspiration. Our teachers love to teach. The love of teaching brings a wealth of attributes: enthusiasm, encouragement, the ability to listen and a genuine desire to connect—for the sake of discovering what inspires the student. We seek all of these qualities in the teachers we recommend. All of our teachers are screened extensively and have excellent reputations in the teaching community. We have included a detailed profile of every teacher, to give you a sense of which teacher might be right for you. Finding the right match is an important key to your enjoyment of the piano over a lifetime, which is our goal.
