Piano

Play piano and build a forever foundation for making music!

Energized, creative, and intuitive, our teaching artists develop thoughtful learning experiences that build a strong foundation of playing technique, music theory, and musicality. Through engaging hands-on activities, visual art, movement, songs, and musical games, students learn to play piano. The Old Town School way is open, understanding, and imaginative. Our teachers are skilled pianists and professional musicians passionate about staying current with best teaching practices and passing on the art of playing piano. In tune with each child's own dreams and imaginings, our piano teachers create safe, nurturing classrooms; build caring relationships with families; and welcome young pianists into the whole musical experience of the Old Town School. We hope that experiencing our piano program inspires a life of music making.
