How much are Piano Lessons?
$120/month - which includes weekly lessons and access to all MAPL performance opportunities and special studio events (singer/songwriting camps, theory & Nashville number system classes, masterclasses with professional pianists, “performance field trips”, etc) - all of which are exclusive to MAPL!
How long are Piano Lessons?
Piano lessons are an hour-long (twice as long as traditional lessons!) and meet weekly.
What is “accelerated” about this approach to piano?
What makes this accelerated program different than traditional piano lessons?
Simply: our students learn to play piano faster than in traditional lessons! Since they spend more time in the studio with our instructors, move through the beginner books faster and on to the music they WANT to play sooner. They learn ALL music in their weekly lessons so practice time at home is easy and fun - not boring or frustrating.

Do you teach Adults?
YES! Adults make even faster progress in our already Accelerated program which is exciting and fun for students and instructors!
What kind of music do students play?
Classical, Disney, pop, musical theatre, jazz, rock tunes… Because our instructors are not only excellent teachers but also professional musicians, they have first-hand experience teaching and performing a variety of musical genres! Our goal is for students to play what they LOVE and because our accelerated piano students move through their beginner books FASTER, they start playing the music they are interested in SOONER.
