About Private Piano Lessons

Alberta School of music offers private piano lessons from age 4 through to adult. From beginner to advanced training, our lessons are tailored to the individual student. Yes, we even have adult students learning to play! As you can imagine, each individual student starts their musical journey at a different starting point. As such, we recognize the importance of teaching the STUDENT and not just a subject. Whether your goal is to play academically or to learn the basics for pure enjoyment, our teachers work with the goals of the student in mind.

Students will learn the fundamentals of music and their instrument through established method books, and will also have the opportunity to explore different genres and styles. Lessons cover all aspects of music, including notation reading, rhythmic understanding, aural training, composition, and technique. Students will discover a wide range of repertoire as they progress and will be exposed to music theory and music history learning throughout their studies.

Students must have a piano or keyboard to practice on at home, as progression is only possible with a regular practice schedule at home. Music books will be recommended by the instructor after meeting with the student for the first time.

All lessons take place once a week at one of our school locations.  Lesson durations can be booked in 30, 45, 60 and 75 minute intervals.  Lesson duration ranges based on age, music level, and goals.

Piano Lesson FAQs

Do I need a piano or keyboard to start piano lessons? Yes, your lessons are only once a week. An instrument at home is required so that the student can practice the new concepts learned and progress continuously.

How much practicing is expected at home? This is a conversation to have your instructor. The beauty of private lessons is that the teacher can cater to the student’s needs, including how quickly the students wants to progress or by working with the student to come up with a plan to practice with a busy schedule outside of music lessons.
