Lessons and Classes
Private Piano Study
30 or 45 minute weekly private lessons are available to students of all levels. Student success is a priority. Students learn at their own pace.
Students are offered many opportunities to perform and share their musical gifts. Students may choose from a variety of performance opportunities each year including judged events, exam programs, community performances and the annual studio recital in May.
Piano Quest Classes
Students receive a combination of 1:1 instruction, individual practice, ensemble work and other group activities during the 60 minute class. Students learn at a faster pace in groups of 3-5.
Kiddy Keys Pre-Piano Discovery Classes
30 minute classes for ages 3-5. 3-7 students per class. Students learn beginning music concepts through music and movement. Basic piano technique is included to prepare little fingers for playing. Creative play with improvisation and composition is encouraged.
Levi and Ben received awards at their recent piano festival. They LOVE piano and I love that I don’t even have to remind them to practice! It is so cool to hear music that sounds like it comes from Pride and Prejudice playing live in my house (and maybe a bit of Star Wars 😊). I would highly recommend Julie Dean Piano for anyone looking for an excellent and inspiring piano teacher!
