Grand Piano Studio is a learning environment built to unleash and inspire your inner musician. Whether guiding beginners, advanced students, or seasoned professionals, Grand Piano Studio's methodology is based on the equal integration of three parts: Reading Music, Improvisation, and Music Theory. Beginners young and older will be able to play beautiful music after their very first lesson! All Grand Piano Studio students learn these three components in tandem with one another. Some people call improvisation "playing by ear."
More specifically it was music written in the European tradition during a period lasting approximately from 1750 to 1830 when forms such as the symphony, concerto, and sonata were standardized. The Classical Workshop at Grand Piano Studio offers classical piano lessons as defined above as well as lessons in Twentieth Century "serious conservatory-based" music. Lessons are offered for all ages and levels and incorporate other elements of music that are necessary for a well-rounded pianist to know.
The Jazz Workshop at Grand Piano Studio offers a broad variety of subjects that cover all aspects of jazz and is custom fit to each individual based on interest and experience level. From beginner to advanced professional, students may select their primary interests.
