Most piano studios accept students at an early elementary age of about 7 years old. Here at Pfafftown Piano, children are accepted as young as age 3. If your child shows an interest in the instrument and is at least 3 years old, let's give it a try! The instructor may make special arrangements for a very young child to have a 20-minute lesson instead of a 30-minute lesson in the case of a child's short attention span.

Pfafftown Piano accepts cash, checks, and online payment via Paypal, available through your monthly invoice.

Yes, absolutely! In fact, a good portion of the studio is made up of adults who are returning to piano after taking lessons as a child or just starting out as a retirement adventure!

Every student should come to the first lesson and each week that follows with a notebook in which the instructor can write notes and assignments. Any student who has books at home - previously used by a parent, friend, sibling, or in past lessons - is welcome to bring them to show to the teacher. This is not a guarantee that they will be used for 2017-2018 lessons. 

Beginners - adults and children - will receive their books at the first lesson unless otherwise informed prior to the first lesson by the teacher. Students are expected to cover the cost of all books.
I prefer the Faber method for child beginners. Some method books begin children with hands learning to play separately, but I find that learning to play hands together from the very first lesson creates a sense of unity between the hands. The hands playing the keyboard are, after all, a unit, and need to function together at the same time. The Faber method begins students with both hands playing in some fashion, and this creates success quickly!

For adult beginners, I recommended the Alfred method. Alfred's "Adult Piano Course" is a perfect way to start. The method is not insulting to the adult learner yet present all the necessary basics for growth and learning.
