Whether you aspire to play Bach or Alicia Keys, Old Towne's dedicated piano instructors will help you become the pianist you want to be. Our faculty will introduce you to the fundamentals of sight reading, technique and theory, and incorporate your favorite songs into your lessons. You do not need a piano at home to take lessons; a simple full-size electronic keyboard will suffice for the first six months.
Our Turnersville (Sewell-Washington Twp), West Deptford and Swedesboro schools offer piano lessons for students of all ages and abilities from beginners to very advanced students. We offer every style of piano lessons from classical, jazz and pop. As we have many piano teachers on staff we are able to match students with a teacher that works best for their ability, age and interests. Some students just want to play for fun while others are planning to enter college for a performance or music degree and are more devoted to advancing at a faster pace.
Students can start private piano lessons at age 5 but those who want to start earlier we have our highly successful Music FunTime preschool program. Private lessons are 30 minutes long but more advanced and devoted students can take an hour lesson. We have teacher’s with bachelor’s degree in music and for our more advanced students we have teachers with their master’s degree in piano.
