How Do I Get Started?
That’s easy. Follow the three simple steps below so you can
stop thinking about the piano and actually start playing it.
1. Take Your Assessment
This 30 second Readiness Assessment will help deternine if you’re actually ready to start playing the piano. I’ll ask a few quick questions like are you a beginner, intermediate or advanced player? What are some of your concerns? What are your goals? Once I get your request, an email will be sent to you with your results. If you’re ready, you’ll move to step 2. This assessment is valuable to anyone who is interested in playing the piano.
2. Request Your Intro
The second part of the assessment will determine if you feel that this is the studio for you by coming in for an intro lesson. This intro lesson will allow you to get a feel for how piano lessons will be going forward. Half the lesson will be spent giving instruction on how to sit, how to position your hands so you’re not in pain, and so much more. The other half will be spent talking about your goals and what you expect going forward. This is the time to see if you vibe with Sara. Once the lesson is done, you can decide if this is the studio for you.
3. Play Music You Love
If you decide to take lessons here, that is when the magic really happens! Once you are a student here, you will be on the road to playing the piano with ease. My Lab Lessons are the perfect piano lessons for beginners and intermediates and my Elite Lessons are reserved for more advanced players. I want you to become the kind of pianist that YOU want to be. Want to be the casual player at parties? I got you. Want to fly through challenging classical pieces? I can help you do that, too.

I’m Looking for Piano Lessons in Levittown,
Why Should I Take Lessons at This Studio?
Here are a few quick reasons you may enjoy taking lessons here.
Fun & Supportive Environment
I believe in keeping music lessons fun and upbeat; nobody wants a tyrant for a teacher or to feel like they’re in school. I’m not one of those teachers who teaches every student the same way. Every student has a different personality and learns differently so it’s important for a teacher to customize music lessons to their students.
Relaxed, Casual Recitals
I’m also not one of those teachers who likes to torture their students with formal recitals. I like to give music performance opportunities in more relaxed settings, where friends and family can enjoy a cup of coffee while hearing your performance. I even have a backyard potluck over the summer where students play whatever they want! Classical music, jazz music, Latin music, Christian music, pop music, rock music, blues music, country music, R&B music, rap music….you name it, you can play it!
Continued Student Success
The students in this music studio consistently score high in NYSSMA and theory exams, win classical performance competitions, and many more are accepted into the top music schools. My students are amazing!
I’ve experimented with many forms of music. I’ve jammed and recorded with indie music bands and improvised at Fat Cat in NYC playing jazz music. I love incorporating non-classical music elements into lessons and giving the theory behind them so, as I said before, whether you’re into jazz music, Latin music, Christian music, pop music, rock music, blues music, country music, R&B music, rap music, or you really love classical music, I teach it all so there’s no limit on what styles you can learn.
Ever the Student
I don’t ever want to fall into the “those who can’t do, teach” group so I still practice, give a music performance in every recital, and challenge myself even as a music teacher. I know what it’s like to be a student. If your teacher can’t play the music that they’re teaching you, that’s a red flag. You want a teacher who can take you from A-Z and a teacher you won’t outgrow.
Unique Lab Lessons
This is a unique way to learn music. This way of teaching gives you the privacy that you need during the lesson so that you don’t feel like the teacher is hovering over you as you practice. Having to give a music performance every second of your lesson is stressful! From classical to pop, these lessons will skyrocket your results.
Frequently Asked Questions
You might have some more questions so I listed the questions I get most below.
Do I really need to do an intro lesson?
Yes. the intro lesson allows you to come in check out the studio, get your questions answered, and take a sample lesson, so you can see if this the studio for you. It also allows me to get to know you better so I make sure you learn the music that intrests you the most. No matter what your skill level is every new student goes through an intro lesson.
Am I too old to learn the piano?
You can learn the piano and how to read music at any age unlike a lot of other activities even with no musical knowledge. There are plenty of advantages to learning later in life and it’s important for us adults and even seniors to have a creative outlet in life to express ourselves.
Lessons for adults aren’t the same as they are for children since you learn differently so rest assured that you’ll have custom lessons tailored to you and your learning style. Beginner piano lessons are different from intermediate or advanced lessons so whether you’re an advanced pianist or you don’t have any musical knowledge at all, I’ve got your covered with personalized piano lessons.
Do you teach children younger than 8?
Generally, I only accept children who are 8 years old and up, but I have made exceptions for younger children who show the level of maturity and responsibility necessary for lessons. Just because your child is playing around on the piano doesn’t mean they’re ready to be taught. They need to be able to sit still and focus for 60 minutes, listen to directions, read, and handle practicing each day at home,
Will I get enough time with you if there are other students in the class?There are only 4 students maximum in a class so that means you’ll get a bunch of time with me throughout an entire hour. You will get all the time with me that you actually NEED. You THINK you need a ton of attention and for me to be looking at you every single second to correct you, but you DON’T actually need that much attention from me. It ends up being a crutch and you will learn to be helpless when I’m not around. You can ask as many questions as you want in class and I will answer them all. The only time I won’t be looking at you is when I give you a little time on your own to practice what I just taught you. I cycle around to each student many times throughout the hour so you’ll never be left alone for longer than a few minutes at a time.
