How old should my child be to start piano lessons?
Students can begin taking lessons as early as first grade and occasionally as young as 5 years old as long as they can sit still for 25 minutes. But you don't have to be "young" to start. You can begin to play piano at ANY age.
Will I need to buy sheet music?
Yes. All students will start with three required books (lesson, theory and technique & artistry). Books can be purchased at Stars & Stripes. The cost is $19.95 for all three books. As a student progresses, you will need to add more books to your student's "library".
What if my child has already taken lessons elsewhere?
No problem! Just bring the books you have to the first lesson. We can start anywhere.
Is there a piano recital?
Piano students have one recital each year to showcase what they have learned. It is an optional, low pressure event where the teacher will help your child prepare months in advance. The recital will be held in the Spring of 2017.
