Piano Lessons For Kids and Adults in Katy and Fort Bend County

Cixi Music Studio enjoys helping both kids and adults learn how to play the piano. We have significant experience teaching pianists of all ages, and our teaching methodologies are always fine-tuned to the individual.

Children learn in private or group lessons at our studio. We do like to use the Faber Piano Adventures method, but we also mix in graded songs and pieces, other exercises, and fun learning activities. We won’t keep your child glued to a method for very long, as we prioritize piano literature as quickly as the student’s reading and technical abilities allow.

Adults bring varied goals to our studio. Some want to play worship or holiday tunes, others can only play the piano by ear and wish to sight read, and others would simply like to understand how to play the piano at a foundational level. We want you to communicate your goals to your teacher, and we will develop a curriculum that perfectly suits your needs.

More Information About Our Katy, TX Piano Lessons

All of our students learn how to read music at Cixi Music Studio. We can always work on lead sheets and other contemporary music-reading mediums, but we believe that reading is a fundamental part of playing the piano at a high level. We will also develop your understanding of music theory - chords, key signatures, harmonies, intervals and more included.

We then rely on our significant knowledge of graded piano literature to help you choose music. By “graded,” we mean that we can identify real pieces of music written by well-known composers that are appropriate for your ability level. You don’t have to be a professional pianist to play artistically fulfilling music!

We also focus on good playing technique. If you have stiff arms, bad posture, or poor wrist movements, you could be injured in the future - we don’t want that to happen.

Private Piano Lessons At Cixi Music Studio in Richmond, TX

In private lessons, you or your child will have the opportunity to receive personalized instruction on a weekly basis and have a meaningful relationship with a highly skilled piano teacher. You will learn new concepts stacked in a logical order each week. For instance:

  • learn where certain notes are on the keys, then learn to identify them on the staff.
  • Learn five-finger patterns on C, F, and G, then build into a full 8-note scale Etc.

The more advanced the pianist becomes, the more important 1-on-1 lessons are. An experienced teacher will be able to identify pieces of piano literature that will challenge you without frustrating you, and they will teach you how to carefully attack new pieces and concepts in digestible amounts. Furthermore, you can communicate your specific goals and concerns with your teacher - if you feel deficient in sight reading, for instance, they can help you. If finger speed is an issue, they can prescribe practice strategies specifically for that matter.

Group Piano Class For Kids in the Katy, TX Area

Young piano students at Cixi Music Studio have the opportunity to enroll in group piano class. Your child will make friends, learn the basics of piano more quickly than you thought possible, and go home each week with new music to play. Our group class students enjoy positive peer relationships, and they will be able to play duets and ensemble music. Our group piano students often love to practice at home, and they are sometimes more motivated to improve than they would be in private lessons. Your child will learn fun pieces, music theory, note reading, and more from the Faber Piano Adventures method, but we also supplement based on our vast knowledge of piano resources.

Piano Lessons to Suit Any Genre

We never expect a student to become the next classical piano prodigy like Lang Lang, or a jazz phenom like Bill Evans, but we do supply all of the skills necessary to reach spectacular levels in any genre. The technique our students learn, the theory knowledge they absorb, and the reading ability we impart will help them learn challenging classical repertoire, improvise, or write their own songs. As mentioned above, we always encourage our piano students to share their goals with a teacher. If Taylor Swift is your child’s favorite artist, we may be able to include one of her songs into our lesson materials. We personalize lessons as much as possible, and we raise the musical ceiling for each pianist at Cixi Music Studio.
