Classes for Students Ages 8 Through Adult

Piano Class (adults)

Have you always wanted to learn how to play the piano?

How is the class structured?  Keyboard Encounters is perfect for the adult beginner or musical hobbyist, with a schedule that is paced to meet the unique needs and personalities of each class.  There are a total of 6 modules and books, each lasting approximately 6-8 weeks.  Most students get started with a 6-week beginner module , then continue on. Each class is small (6-8 students), so you'll get a lot of individual attention.

What is the tuition?   Each semester is $499, including the books and class materials. 

 "I'd like to learn how to play, but I don't have a piano or keyboard."   If you don't already own a keyboard or piano, you might not be ready to purchase one until you're sure that the class is right for you.  We'll loan you a portable keyboard, free of charge for up to one full semester, until you're ready to purchase your own.

"What kind of instrument will I be playing on?"  Yamaha's Clavinova Digital Piano is the state-of-the-art classroom instrument!

"What kind of songs will we be playing?"  Students learn a wide variety of styles, from classical to blues to pop.
