Why Piano Lessons

Piano lessons are a great way to support healthy brain function and a great way for children to improve their math and creative thinking. This healthy brain function can have an effect on how a child's brain develops or maintaining a sharp mind in adulthood.

Playing Piano
What lessons are like

A great piano lesson will have several elements that will teach how to understand written music and how to "speak" music. This is commonly called Music Theory. A piano student will also receive weekly practice songs that reinforce the techniques and concepts learned in the lesson. These individual lessons are organized to meet long term goals in line with the student's milestone program.

Sheet Music
How often are lessons

Generally, piano lessons occur weekly, however, we do offer bi-weekly & semi-weekly lessons. We don't encourage students to take more than 2 lessons per week (semi-weekly), because every student needs roughly 30 min of daily practice.

What our Families Say About Us

"Burdett is the most patient, fun yet knowledgeable piano teacher we have ever had. He is incredibly gifted in all things rhythm and music. On top of it all, he is a wonderful human."

— Nicole B

"Burdett Rice is an exceptional teacher and musician. I am an intermediate adult piano student and worked with Burdett for 4 years. He is a talented musician and a patient teacher. I loved that he taught me technique, theory, and music history all of which combined to make me a more well-rounded musician. I moved out of state or I would still be taking lessons from Burdett."

— Virginia D.
