Piano Lesson Plans

Life is like a piano. What you get out of it depends on how you play it. -Tom Lehrer

Have you always dreamed of playing the piano or wondered what it feels like to be your own source of music? Have you been longing to explore new creative possibilities that can also sharpen and relax your mind?

So, why haven’t you started? Maybe it’s because you never had the opportunity when you were younger or finding time was always a struggle. Or perhaps you have taken some piano and you’re interested in starting up again after a long hiatus. Or maybe you simply want to give it another shot.

Well, here’s your chance. We’re here to inspire your confidence, creativity, and musical growth by helping you climb over mental barriers, self-limiting beliefs, and self-doubts.

Let’s get you going by starting with the overview and steps below.

How the Four (4) Lesson Plan works

Our personalized and manageable lesson plans include a total of four (4) private lessons. Pricing varies based on the level and duration you select.

Each of the four (4) lessons is scheduled once per week on a day and time you can consistently attend. Therefore, a four (4) lesson plan is typically completed in four weeks.

In order to continue taking lessons at your preferred time, you must renew your lesson plan within the agreed upon arrangements or 48 hours after the last lesson of your plan. For more information, learn more about PianoVerse or go to Start Here & FAQ.

 

About Private Piano Lessons

Who do we teach? Teaching adults is definitely our thing, but don’t worry! Our teachers are also experienced in teaching teens and children (4+).

Advancement: Advancing to the next piano level depends on awareness of your habits, asking questions, patience, perseverance, practice, and an ability to demonstrate proficiency of your current Level requirements.

Books: Piano lesson book(s) will be suggested after the first lesson since everyone learns differently, has different interests, and is at a different stage. If you have your own repertoire, feel free to bring it to the lesson and the teacher can check to see if it fits within your piano skill (and help you work up to it). Book cost is separate from lesson plan cost.
