When you’re matched up, you’ll receive your teacher’s contact information and profile. Your teacher will then call you to introduce themselves and schedule your first lesson.

We want you to have peace of mind, so we've implemented a program that we like to call Safe and Sound™, in which all of the piano teachers we work with undergo a national criminal background check in addition to their normal reference check.

Student Reviews

Wonderful teacher for beginning learners

Chris is wonderful and engaging music teacher. My son just started piano lessons with Chris and looks forward to them every week, despite starting somewhat reluctantly. Chris has been amazing in engaging his 6-year old brain and had him playing "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" by the end of the first lesson!

Piano Lessons are Good for You and Your Brain!

Do piano lessons make children smarter? This question has intrigued scientists, parents, and educators for decades. Studies have shown that, yes, they do increase children's cognitive abilities, and in many more ways than previously believed. At its most basic level, the piano requires you to make connections between your brain (or your memory of the keys and their associated notes) and your hands, which are often performing two separate functions at the same time. That takes a lot of brainpower!

But research has shown that the benefits of piano lessons go much deeper than boosted brainpower. Increased emotional maturity, higher IQs, and above-average test scores are just the tip of the iceberg. In order to demonstrate how truly beneficial piano lessons are for children, we've made an infographic explaining the results of all this research. You don't have to be a scientist to see that taking piano lessons as a child gives you a greater chance of success. After all, it worked for Albert Einstein!
