You Have a Lot to Consider

You want to play the piano…

But you might feel you’re too old to learn, that your musical time has passed you by, and playing an actual song on the piano seems impossible.

You’re frustrated because you’ve come this far in life, but you promised yourself you’d learn to play and you haven’t kept that promise yet.

It’s time to stop pushing aside your dream. Imagine dropping the jaws of your friends and family at the next get-together. It’s possible and I’ll show you how.

Hi I’m Sara, the Teacher Who’ll Show You How to Play The Piano With Ease

Like you, I was a beginner at one point too. I know firsthand how it feels to struggle with what note goes to what key on the piano.

I felt hopeless and frustrated that I couldn’t get my hands to do what I wanted them to do. Overwhelmed by all the things I still had to learn, I wanted to quit many times.

I graduated from Crane School of Music. I spent the last 25 years learning how to master the piano and pulling apart my own playing so that I can explain things to you in simple, easy-to-understand language.

During this time, I found a truly unique way to teach piano. This way of learning piano is so powerful that I’ve made it my mission to teach other adults how to become the kind of piano players they want to be.

This is why I became a piano teacher.

Over the years, through my unique piano lesson format, I have taught many adult piano students how to easily play the songs they love.

Introducing: Lab Style Piano Lessons

The fast and easy way for adults to learn to play the piano.

Pink and Purple Sporty Gradient Fitness YouTube Thumbnail 10

This new way of learning piano includes individualized teaching and practice in a lab setting with up to four students, with headphones at each station.

Students in each class do not have to be at the same level since the class is not taught as a group. I repeat, this class is NOT taught as a group. You’ll be taught individually.

You receive individual attention and we’ll go at your pace. All your music is thoroughly learned in the lesson, which makes practice at home easier for you!

Because there is a heavy emphasis on sight-reading and independence, you’re able to play the music you love quicker and you’ll most likely level up in your book at a faster rate than the publisher advertises, so you’ll be more confident at home.

Before and After 

I asked a few students what their life was like before Chatalbash Lessons and how it’s improved after enrolling. Wow, what a difference!

BEFORE:I’d see someone playing piano and be amazed at how they could do that.”

AFTER:I can sit at any piano and make music. It’s incredible how fast it happened.”

BEFORE: “I tried teaching myself piano off of Youtube, but I kept hitting roadblocks.”

AFTER:“In just a few lessons, Sara made playing the piano easier and simpler than before.”

BEFORE:I thought, “Am I too old to learn? Can I really do this? This looks really hard.”

AFTER:Sara put my fears to rest. It’s wild that I can play songs that actually sound like music!”

“My Parents are Going to Flip Out When They See I Can Play…”

I know mastering piano normally starts off at a younger age, but Sara reassured me that I could definitely learn. I look forward to lessons each and every week… – Marissa Dunne, Seaford, NY

Frequently Asked Question

Still unsure? I’ve answered some common questions adults have below.

  • image/svg+xmlimage/svg+xml
    Am I too old to learn the piano?

    Absolutely not!

    You can learn the piano at any age unlike a lot of other activities. There are plenty of advantages to learning piano later in life and it’s important for adults and even seniors to have a creative outlet in life to express themselves.

    I don’t teach children the same way I teach adults so rest assured that you’ll have custom lessons tailored to you and your learning style.

  • image/svg+xmlimage/svg+xml
    I don't have a lot of time to practice. Can I still get good?

    You don’t need a lot of practice time to make progress, you just need CONSISTENT practice time.

    If you only have 30 minutes a day to practice, that’s completely fine, but make sure you practice every day to really cement your new skills and ensure you fully comprehend them.

    I’d recommend no less than 30 minutes a day since you won’t be able to get through everything you need to practice in less time than that, but practice as much as you personally can if you don’t have 30 minutes in your day.

    You’ll just make slower progress, that’s all. Slower progress is better than zero progress. Think about your day or your week in advance and schedule your practice time. Maybe wake up a little earlier or do it right after you get home so you don’t forget. Make it a routine!

    Why are you qualified to teach me piano?

    Unlike a lot of piano teachers, I didn’t teach myself and this isn’t a hobby or side job for me.

    I was trained for 16 years by many professional pianists who have degrees in music education on piano and/or piano performance and I graduated from The Crane School of Music, a renowned school that breeds some of the best music educators in the country.

    I’ve been teaching piano for 14 years and have been playing for 26. I’ve performed professionally at numerous venues and even on studio records.

    Whether you choose me or someone else, they should be professionally trained, be able to play/teach beginner-advanced, and piano should be their main instrument.

  • image/svg+xmlimage/svg+xml
    Will I get made fun of because I’m an adult beginner?

    One thing I do know is that nobody in my studio will say a word about you being an adult learner because they have been exactly where you’ve been, learning piano for the very first time.

    They know first hand how difficult it is and they’ll respect you for it, as will I. What I can’t control is what people outside of this studio who are in your personal life may say to you.

    Remember, if anyone pokes fun at you for learning piano at your age, it just means they’re insecure about their own lives.

    They’re probably secretly jealous that you’re doing something for yourself and doing something you’ve always wanted to do when they can’t/are afraid to. To quote Teddy Roosevelt, “It is not the critic who counts. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena.”

    Are your friends in the arena daring to be great at something? No. But you are so be PROUD. Age means absolutely nothing. You CAN do this!
