Piano / Ages 5 - Adult

Learn how to play piano! Our piano lessons are geared towards beginners looking for a general foundation keyboard instruments. Piano is a great first instrument and introduction to music for both kids and adults alike as the nature and layout of the keyboard makes it one of the most beginner-friendly instruments. Piano lessons will focus on basic chord and song structure and branch out from there depending on what styles and genres the student is interested in. Students will need a piano or keyboard-type instrument to practice on at home. If you are in need of piano-tuning feel free to contact the Sunflower Flower Repair Station at 512-668-3019. Depending on the condition of your instrument we may be able to help.
