Private piano lessons are available for students of all ages and abilities. We are prepared to teach beginning students up to the most advanced students. Many adults choose to fulfill that life-long wish to play piano by taking lessons. Students are also encouraged to take part in recitals at the end of each quarter. As students advance, other opportunities are available, including the Keyboard Festival, MMTA competitions and concerto auditions with the Heartland Symphony Orchestra. Our piano lessons are very comprehensive and include music theory, sight-reading, technique, ear training and performing.
Piano with Dr. Turley
Intermediate and advanced piano students and teachers have a unique opportunity to study with a true piano artist close to home! Dr. Edward Turley, faculty member at the College of St. Benedict / St. John's University will teach lessons here every other Monday evening.
This class is a great way for beginning piano students to get off to a good start in music. Open to 4 and 5 year olds who show an interest in piano or music but are not ready for individual lessons. The class will consist of games and activities integrating music and piano skills. The class will use our electronic teaching lab where each student has their own keyboard that is individually monitored by the teacher. Piano party meets Tuesday evenings from 5 to 5:30.
Church and recreational organ lessons are available to students of all ages and skill levels. Our advanced students are in great demand to play at local church services, weddings and funerals.
Each Spring the Music Center hosts a Keyboard Festival for all central Minnesota piano students. Students have an opportunity to perform a memorized piece for a professional clinician who then gives them a short lesson and a written critique. The lesson also serves as a audition for the Honors Concert which is also part of the Festival. Contact the Music Center for registration information.
