About Piano Lessons

LOCATION
Lessons are held in my home studio, located in Linden Hills neighborhood in Minneapolis near 41st Street and France Avenue.  Students have the opportunity to play on a grand piano and a studio upright. Free street parking directly in front of the studio.  Weekly 30 or 45 minute lessons are scheduled at a mutually convenient time during the school year.  A flexible summer schedule allows for vacations, camps, sports activities etc. and is included in the tuition. 

GROUP LESSONS
5 or 6 times a year, small group lessons are held.  These are 60 minute classes and replace the private lesson for that week. The purpose of these group lessons is to learn musicianship skills and share our music with others.   Musicianship skills such as theory, arranging, composing, and ear training are included  We also learn about composers, musical genres, and musical forms.  Please see the calendar for exact dates.
