Finding the Right Fit

While you are researching the best piano instructor for your child or yourself, please read about the benefits of enrolling at MEA Piano Studio. MEA Piano Studio is one of the only independent piano studios in Alexandria with a full-time instructor. Brand new, complete beginners are welcome. Parents don't need a musical background only a commitment to lessons and regular practice. (That's the only way piano lessons can be successful!).

Students as young as four can begin lessons, though sometimes students as young as 3.5 are accepted. Lessons for younger students are kept very short. Fifteen minutes for four year old students and five to fifteen minutes for those that are younger. Students that are six to nine years old begin with thirty minute lessons while students that are nine through twelve begin with forty-five minute lessons. Students older than twelve, including adults, begin with sixty minute lessons.

The studio is located near the Springfield Mall in a professional office location. There is no need to travel to someone's house and there is plenty of parking. A waiting area is available for siblings and parents.

Lessons are fun and stress-free. Students are not forced to play in competitions but are encouraged to participate in several non-competitive performances throughout the year. Some are private. Some give trophies. And all give encouragement and feedback to the student.

Schedule a free trial lesson at the Franconia location. It's important that the parent, student, and teacher all feel comfortable together. There is very much a team aspect to successful piano lessons and creating a good match at the beginning is essential.

Listen to original compositions created by current students. Students of all ages came up with these compositions on their own, some because I asked. And others, just did so on their own. Composing music is a natural part of a student's progression if they are practicing adequately. Why? Well, because students get bored practicing the same thing all the time, so they start to experiment with different sounds, and that leads to composing.

  • I would recommend this business
  • Lessons at an office instead of someone's home.

My children have been taking lessons here for 6 years and have learned so much and become really great pianists - all due to the instructor at MEA piano. She is a great teacher and I recommend her to everyone I meet!
