Jane Young's Piano Studio offers piano and keyboard lessons for all ages. Whether you are five or 95, you can learn to play music you enjoy!

Why learn the piano?

Children who play piano show greater ability in math and reading. Keyboard lessons given to the elderly result in improved overall health. At any age, playing piano stimulates the brain positively.

Besides the joy of making music, piano lessons foster mind/body coordination, the ability to concentrate, a sense of mastery and positive self-esteem.

What materials will we use?

Exciting new piano materials are being published all the time, making lessons more appealing and fun than ever before. Optional materials include:

  • CDs of your music to play along with
  • Top hits and other solo sheet music
  • Flashcards and colorful music workbooks
  • Computer games on music basics

Are piano lessons just for children?

Not at all! Beginning music books are available for teens and adults, for either classical or pop music. Older students can also learn “chord-style” playing, an easy way to play your favorite music.
