You Want the Best For Your Child

You want your child to explore the idea of music.

You want a safe, upbeat, inviting and engaging place for them to explore this part of their world, so you can help them discover activities that interest them.

The problem is, most piano lessons that kids take are dull and uninviting, which snuffs out your child’s interest before it even starts.

Your child deserves piano lessons that are fun and engaging, which is why I focus on teaching your child songs they love. This helps them feel good about themselves so they can grow as a person and a musician.

Your Child Deserves the Chance to Fall in Love With Music

Hi, I’m Sara, and I’ll be the Teacher Teaching Your Child to Play the Piano

Like your child, 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 so many times…

I spent the last 25 years learning how to master the piano, graduating from the Crane school of Music and pulling apart my own playing so that I can explain things to your child 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 children 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 lessons for kids format, I have taught dozens of kids how to easily play the songs they love.

Lessons that Take the Mystery out of Playing the Piano For Your Child

And you both get 24/7 access to your teacher so they’ll never feel stuck or frustrated at home.

All kids love music, but let’s face it, not all kids love music lessons.

My lab-style lessons make playing the piano fun and easy. Your child will build their confidence while they learn to play the songs they love, not in old, one-on-one private lessons, but in a supportive, welcoming, and warm lab-style setting.

Lab lessons allow your child to experience the thrill of learning the piano without the feeling of being alone, or the social isolation that can happen when you take piano lessons by yourself.

Not only do kids in lab lessons learn how to play piano, but they also learn to play a variety of styles including popular music, and how to write and perform their own songs (if they choose). This helps your child feel a sense of pride, accomplishment, and ownership over the music they play.

Imagine how your child will feel playing piano on stage in front of a supportive, cheering crowd.  Imagine how you’ll feel watching your child basking in the spotlight. Click the red button below and request their intro lesson now.

Piano Lessons for Kids: Before and After 

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

BEFORE: “My kid begged me for lessons. I was reluctant because I didn’t know how serious he was.”

AFTER: “I can’t believe he can play the songs that he does. I love seeing how excited he is each week!” 

BEFORE:We have a piano at home that Emily plays around with. So I put her in lessons.”

AFTER: “Her school teacher asked her to play for the class. This was a huge source of pride for her!”

BEFORE:I wasn’t happy with Jacks’ old teacher. So I took a chance and tried lessons here.”

AFTER: Jack loves lessons so much he rushes home to practice. That says it all it’s incredible!

My No Fluff 4-Lesson/Lifetime Guarantee

My lessons have a very simple guarantee and I don’t believe in dilly-dallying so here it is.

If after 4 lessons you believe this isn’t the studio for your child—please, email me at sara@chatalbashlessons.com immediately and I’ll pay for your child’s first month of lessons with their next piano teacher. Calmly, quietly without question.

Even if you decide later on down the road you no longer want them taking lessons here…you are still covered by this guarantee…forever.

This guarantee is in force as long as they’re an enrolled student here—none of this “30 days” nonsense- you get infinite days.

Best case, they boost their confidence while learning a new skill. Worst case, you tell me I suck and I pay the first month of their next teacher. But, the only thing guaranteed to not help them is clicking away from this site.

Your child probably has an interest or even passion for music, right? They love listening to music, going to concerts, looking at online piano lessons, and watching others play. They 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 not looking for anything fancy or too serious with a teacher who’s only trying to program your child to play only classical music. Maybe they’re interested in a performance opportunity to play for others or if you’d like to also take piano lessons yourself in the same piano class as your child, I also provide lessons for adults for adult piano students of any age. All in all, you want them to have music education in their lives because you know how much value it has. Well, you’ve come to the right place. If you want to know how much are piano lessons you are in the right place. If you want to learn more about piano lessons in Levittown head to your Levittown page.

Here, I provide classes for kids who have varied skill levels, especially those who have no musical ability yet. They are month to month lessons, with no long-term contracts so it allows for flexible scheduling if you need to take a break. 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 child’s needs 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 private teachers don’t even have music degrees. Childhood music classes are different from child to child with individual learning styles and motor skills being varied so your child’s piano classes will be customized to them to give them a well-rounded musical education that includes reading sheet music, music theory and performance opportunities. My classes for kids are different from traditional lessons in that I provide private practice time within the lesson to foster independent learning. I teach the fundamentals while also adding in songs for kids they’ll enjoy. If you’re an advanced player and are looking to train for college auditions in front of piano faculty, 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 keyboard or piano at home, plenty of stores provide rental programs if you’re not sure if your child will stick with it.

Frequently Asked Question

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

  • image/svg+xmlimage/svg+xml
    What if my child doesn't want to practice did I just waste all my money?

    Practicing is not always fun because practicing requires concentrating on the things you CAN’T do and practicing them over and over again until you can.

    It requires discipline and focus that kids sometimes don’t intrinsically have. In my unique program, kids learn their songs DURING their lesson fully before going home instead of being assigned to figure it out at home because the teacher didn’t have time to teach it all in the lesson like what usually happens in traditional, private lessons.

    This was one of the biggest reasons I changed the way I do things. Students go home knowing their songs already so all they have to do is play through it at home and review it so it’s smooth. This means less frustration and confusion at home for both you and your child!

  • image/svg+xmlimage/svg+xml
    Can lessons keep their attention when all they want to do is play on their phones and iPads all day?

    Here, students get to actually pick the songs they play.

    They’ll learn out of their lesson books to be taught fundamentals, but they get to choose songs they love on the side as well so they’ll always have something fun and engaging to want to practice at home.

    Piano lessons are customized to what your child wants to play instead of being forced into playing things only the teacher wants, which leads to boredom and wanting to quit. Children and teens want to feel like they have a say in what they’re learning in their classes and want to feel connected to it so I take that very seriously in my piano lessons.

  • image/svg+xmlimage/svg+xml
    Am I sending my child someplace safe?

    My studio is completely see-through so parents and the public can always see what we’re doing inside. I take children’s safety very seriously.

    There are multiple students in each class as well if you click here you can see exactly what the studio looks like below to get an idea of where your child will be learning.

    I take great pride in providing a calm, creative, and safe space for children to come to. If you’d like to see a copy of my criminal background check, email me right now at sara@chatalbashlessons.com. I’d be happy to provide that to you so you feel good about who you’re leaving your child with. No questions asked.

  • image/svg+xmlimage/svg+xml
    Are you qualified to teach my child piano?
    Yes, 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 lessons for 14 years and have been playing for 26. I’ve performed professionally at numerous venues and even on studio records. If you want to read more about my qualifications I have a list on my about page called Just The Facts click here and I’ll take you straight to the list.

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