Piano Education

Piano Lessons

Taking piano lessons helps students reduce stress, learn better coordination, improve social skills, calm hyperactivity, increase brain function, and even help the body produce cancer-fighting brain cells! In short, everyone should take piano lessons. Regardless of your musical aptitude or experience, the process of studying music can improve your health, your mood and your life. Take time to play!


Piano Teachers We Recommend

Selecting the right piano teacher for your student is critical to his or her success. Don't choose a piano teacher simply because he or she is close to where you live. Instead, consider your goals (and/or your student's goals) and select the piano teacher who can best help you achieve them.

The information listed below and in the subsequent profiles was provided to Gist by the teachers themselves.

If you're a piano teacher and you'd like to be listed here, contact us and ask about our Partners In Education program.
