FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT DO YOU LEARN IN YOUR PIANO LESSONS?
That question is often asked by prospective PIANO students. Our PIANO teachers make it a priority to get to know you on a personal level and to become familiar with your personal musical needs and goals.
We do not treat every PIANO student the same in terms of what and how we teach.
A seven-year-old having their first PIANO lesson will have very different needs than a fifty-seven-year-old taking up PIANO for the 2nd time after having had lessons as a child.
The main reason to choose the Academy as your PIANO lesson provider, is that we are sensitive to the fact that every PIANO student is an individual.
If you enroll here for PIANO lessons, we will work with you to make a plan that will fit your needs and musical preferences. At the first lesson your PIANO 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.
WHAT DO I NEED TO START PIANO LESSONS?
As professionals, we always encourage children and adult students to learn on good acoustical instruments. However, we also understand that purchasing an acoustical piano is a serious financial commitment, and many parents want to give their kids a jump start in music classes before deciding to invest in a piano. In this case, some of our beginning students purchase an inexpensive keyboard as a temporary solution.
WHAT STYLES OF PIANO DO YOU TEACH?
We teach all styles from classical, jazz, pop, country, and blues.

ABOUT THE PIANO
The piano is an acoustic, stringed musical instrument invented in Italy by Bartolomeo Cristofori around the year 1700, in which the strings are struck by hammers. It is played using a keyboard, which is a row of keys (small levers) that the performer presses down or strikes with the fingers and thumbs of both hands to cause the hammers to strike the strings. Most modern pianos have a row of 88 black and white keys, 52 white keys for the notes of the C major scale (C, D, E, F, G, A and B) and 36 shorter black keys, which are raised above the white keys, and set further back on the keyboard. This means that the piano can play 88 different pitches (or “notes”), going from the deepest bass range to the highest treble. The black keys are for the “accidentals” (F♯/G♭, G♯/A♭, A♯/B♭, C♯/D♭, and D♯/E♭), which are needed to play in all twelve keys. There are two main types of piano: the grand piano and the upright piano. The grand piano is used for Classical solos, chamber music, and art song, and it is often used in jazz and pop concerts. The upright piano, which is more compact, is the most popular type, as it is a better size for use in private homes for domestic music-making and practice. The piano is widely employed in classical, jazz, traditional and popular music for solo and ensemble performances, accompaniment, and for composing, songwriting and rehearsals.
FAMOUS PIANO PLAYERS
Many classical music composers, including Haydn, Mozart, and Beethoven, composed for the fortepiano, a rather different instrument than the modern piano. The fortepiano was a quieter instrument with a narrower dynamic range and a smaller span of octaves. Even composers of the Romantic movement, like Liszt, Chopin, Robert Schumann, Felix Mendelssohn, and Johannes Brahms, wrote for pianos substantially different from 2010-era modern pianos. Ragtime music, popularized by composers such as Scott Joplin, reached a broader audience by 1900. The popularity of ragtime music was quickly succeeded by Jazz piano. New techniques and rhythms were invented for the piano, including ostinato for boogie-woogie, and Shearing voicing. George Gershwin‘s Rhapsody in Blue broke new musical ground by combining American jazz piano with symphonic sounds. Pianos have also been used prominently in rock and roll and rock music by entertainers such as Jerry Lee Lewis, Little Richard, Keith Emerson (Emerson, Lake & Palmer), Elton John, Ben Folds, Billy Joel, Nicky Hopkins, and Tori Amos, to name a few. Modernist styles of music have also appealed to composers writing for the modern grand piano, including John Cage and Philip Glass.
