We Teach Kids and Adults How to Play the Piano
Piano Lessons For Kids in Houston
Does your young child show an interest in music, would your teenager like to prepare for college auditions, or do you believe in the value of a childhood music education? Regardless of your goals for your family, we would love to teach your child how to play the piano. Our lessons are fundamentally sound and focused on excellence, but we also have fun, play games, and make sure your child is working on music they love.
They will learn how to read notes, identify steps and skips, and play with good technique on the keys, but we will also move a few steps beyond; we love to encourage our young students to compose their own music and play by ear. We do incorporate the Faber Piano Adventures method into our lessons, but we also supplement with skill level-appropriate repertoire and exercises.
Piano Lessons For Adults in Houston
Whether you’re a young professional adult, busy parent, or retired individual who has always wanted to play the piano, we would love to help you out on the keyboard. Our adult piano lessons take many forms; some of our students have a note reading deficiency, some want to learn music theory, some come to us with tension in their playing - every student is different.
In short, we want to hear about your goals, and we are happy to answer your questions. Our lessons with adults are collaborative, and we will move as quickly or as slowly as you would like.
Goal-Oriented Piano Teachers in Houston
Your piano lessons can only be as effective as your teacher. Instructors at Cixi Music Studio have degrees in music, years of teaching experience, and can perform at a professional level, and we are confident that you or your child will improve in short order.
We Work Towards Your Goals
We don’t require our students to participate in MTNA piano competitions (although we are happy to help you prepare!), we won’t force you to play music you dislike, and we are happy to work with different methods and goals. Are you taking lessons so you can learn Christmas tunes this year? Let us know. Do you want your child to have a fundamentally sound, classical music education? We would love to help. Communicate your goals to your teacher, and we’ll help.
Our Piano Lessons are Suited For All Genres
Our curriculum is classical by nature, but we can help you learn how to play jazz, rock, pop, classical, and other musical genres. Piano music comes from notes, chords, and the keys on the instrument, and the combinations of notes you use, and rhythm you play them with, is secondary. Let your instructor know what your favorite music is, and we’ll do our best to accommodate.
Make Progress Rapidly
You can piece together a working knowledge of the piano on YouTube and with video courses (or by working through method books on your own), but you will progress much more quickly with a qualified teacher. A teacher will assign effective drills and literature, tell you exactly how to practice, and keep you on schedule. Furthermore, you won’t run the risk of leaving gaps in your music education.
Demonstrate Your Progress in Annual Recitals
Students at Cixi Music Studio have the opportunity to perform for friends, family and peers in annual recitals. We love showcasing the music you have been practicing, and our piano recitals are a great way to meet other students and their families.
Looking For Advanced Piano Coaching in Houston?
While many of our students are beginners, we love helping advanced pianists reach the next level. We can help you memorize literature, put an impressive audition together, and choose repertoire that challenges you and shows off your abilities. Whether you are working on Prokofiev, the Carl Vine sonata, or a Bach set, let us help you take your playing to a professional level.
We also coach advanced pianists on technique and musical interpretation. We can help you develop speed, a beautiful sound, or a framework for playing a difficult piece musically.
Group Piano Classes or Private Lessons
What’s better, group piano lessons or private instruction? The truth is, every student is different. Your child may benefit from the positive peer pressure and camaraderie of a piano class, but others may learn more efficiently in a 1-on-1 setting. If you’re unsure of which option to pursue, give us a call! We can tell you about our classes and lessons, and you’ll be able to make an informed decision.
