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.

It’s not your fault, life got busy and you often put other things ahead of yourself.

It’s time to stop putting yourself second and pushing aside your goals. Imagine hearing gasps of amazement as your friends sit breathless watching you play piano for the first time. It’s going to be incredible.

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 be musical and 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.

Lessons That Take the Mystery Out of Playing the Piano For Adults

All adults love music, but let’s face it, not all adults love the thought of piano lessons.

My lab-style piano lessons make playing the piano fun and easy for adults. I removed the negatives I saw with most other lessons and have developed a teaching style designed with adults in mind. These are kids’ piano lessons.

Lab lessons allow you to experience the thrill of learning the piano without the feeling of being alone, or the social isolation that can come from taking lessons by yourself.

Not only will you learn how to be musical and play the piano, but you can also learn how to write and perform your own songs (if you choose).

Imagine how excited you’ll feel when you walk past a piano and confidently know you can play it.

You probably have a passion for music, right? You might have even tried a trial lesson, some private piano lessons, or online lessons with an experienced teacher and musician and it didn’t work out. Now, you landed here, saw our music lessons, and are thinking about taking the opportunity for an introductory lesson to see what all the hoopla is about. You’re most likely an adult beginner not looking for anything fancy or too serious with a teacher who can teach you your favorite piece of music one day and introduce you to various musical styles, not just classical music. You want a teacher who is going to help foster your enjoyment of music through piano. Well, you’ve come to the right place. These are not kids piano lessons.

 

Here, I provide classes for adults who have varied skill levels, especially those who are absolute beginners. Unlike a lot of big-box music stores that teach thousands of students under dozens of piano instructors who don’t have the time to focus on your musical goals because they’re so busy, I am the sole teacher here in a private music school with only a select number of piano students. A lot of piano instructors in those stores and even a lot of private teachers are not experienced piano teachers with a lot of piano experience. Here, your piano classes will be customized to you to make your piano studies well-rounded, which includes reading sheet music, music theory, and performance opportunities. My classes for adults are different from traditional, private lessons in that I provide private practice time within the lesson to foster independent learning. I teach the fundamentals while also adding in songs and pieces of music you enjoy. I teach beginner piano students, intermediate piano students, and advanced students. Intermediate piano lessons aren’t much different from beginners lessons in that they’re still held in the lab format- you don’t need private piano lessons even at an intermediate level. If you’re an advanced player and are looking to train for college auditions in front of piano faculty to get a degree in piano performance or music education, NYSSMA, or gain professional performance experience, I also provide private coaching. Advanced music students need private lessons to focus on more things. If you need a digital piano or piano at home, plenty of stores provide rental programs if you’re not sure if you’ll stick with it.

Before and After Personalized Piano Lessons 

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 the song!”
