    Keyboards and Pianos

    Please note the distinction between pianos and keyboards. We expect our piano students to have pianos and do not recommend learning piano on a keyboard (i.e. piano instruments powered by electricity). We have a limited amount of classes available for students with keyboards. It is important to specify exactly whether piano or keyboard lessons are being applied for. This is to prevent any misunderstanding when the student is called for interview prior to the first lesson.
