Arlington Piano Academy
Piano Lessons are twice a week for new students until they are in middle school. The tuition is charged monthly. Tuition is due the first week of each month.
The lessons are individual lessons, only one student per lesson.
Piano lessons are open to students ages 4 and up.
Students do not have to have any musical background to begin piano lessons, as it is a gradual learning process.
In the piano lessons, the students learn proper piano technique, music theory, how to read music, musicianship, ear training, improvisation, composition, and artistry. All of these activities help the student to play piano.
For piano lessons, students/parents can choose between 30-minute, 45-minute lessons and 60-minute lessons.
We look forward to working with both the parents and students to help each student achieve the best results possible.
PIANO LESSON BOOKS
The purpose of piano books is to provide the student with a reference at home so they can properly practice. Students can acquire the books online, or we can provide books for the students at our cost plus the cost of shipping. Students typically will have between 3-4 books. The books students need are (this list is flexible depending on the student): piano lesson book, music theory book, and a performance or repertoire book.
Books that reflect the musical interest of the student will be chosen. All musical styles can be studied: Worship music, Classical, Jazz, Popular, etc. Music scores can also be purchased online to print or read from your iPad or Tablet.
