Piano lessons are fun for students at Arlington Heights Music Academy! Our piano teachers are friendly and patient. Each teacher possesses a university degree and a set of piano skills so that each student can progress from beginning to advanced instruction with the same teacher, creating a lasting bond and mutual understanding that can help the student learn in the best way possible. Students will gain an understanding of music theory and piano technique, as well as the ability to read sheet music. Once the basic technique and reading skills are learned, a wide variety of musical styles are available, including classical, jazz, and popular styles.
We keep students interested in their lessons through a combination of incentives, performance opportunities, and making lessons fun with the use of games that teach as well as entertain. All lessons include the opportunity to win weekly prizes and end-of-year medals through earning points based on at-home practicing. Students are also given the chance to compete in music festivals and theory tests to further increase their musicianship. We also provide three recitals per year as an opportunity for the student to perform! The recitals are a wonderful way for the student to share with his or her family the skills they have learned, as well as having the chance to hear the performances of other students.
The benefits of learning and instrument are lasting – experts agree that learning to play an instrument improves test scores, fine motor skills, self-confidence and problem solving, as well as fostering a love and understanding of the art of music. Piano is a skill that can be enjoyed for a lifetime!
