Piano Lessons

Paramon piano, tall smilingThe Academy’s piano faculty is second to none in the region.  Many have over 30 years’ teaching experience or master’s degrees in piano.  Academy students frequently earn top honours in local and regional music festivals and excel in examinations as well.  Lessons for most students, certainly those at the intermediate or advanced level, learn on beautifully maintained grand pianos, which helps develop a mature and sensitive tone and touch.

Our instructors are highly personable and make fostering the joy of music in their students their first priority.  Whatever you or your child’s musical goals, the Academy’s piano instructors can help you reach or exceed them.

 

Cost

The cost of lessons depends on the teacher’s rate, the length of time per lesson, and the number of lessons left in the term.  In 2017-18 the cost of lessons is $30.00 per half hour.
