About Piano Classes with Mrs. Misty

Mrs. Misty teaches beginning  through early intermediate levels in a small group setting. Each month we do a variety of activities in piano class designed to create a musically literate, well-rounded, musician. New concepts are introduced using motivating music supplemented by performance repertoire and ensemble pieces. These concepts are reinforced with written theory, ear training lab, sight reading, technique, rhythm drills, composition, and improvisation. Through piano lessons your child will learn concentration, self-esteem, and an appreciation of music. 

Ages

Age 7-Adult

*Younger students should check out the Early Childhood Music portion of this site.

Private Instruction

Pricing

$15 for a 30 minute private lesson

$20 for a 45 minute private lesson 


Private Instruction is offered on an "as needed" basis. Please check with Mrs. Misty for availability. These lessons will be for students that are in a group class that have fallen behind the pace of their class and need to catch up due to lack of at home practice or poor attendance. These “as needed” private lessons will also be for students that are wanting to prepare for something extra: auditions, pageants, scholarships, talent shows, special religious performances, etc. I will offer private lessons by appointment only.  Private lessons are also available to students that can take lessons, during the school day (weekdays before 2:00)  including  Adult Students, and Home School Students.
