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 are dull and uninviting which snuff’s out your child’s piano 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 lesson format, I have taught dozens of kids how to easily play the songs they love.

Introducing: Lab Style Piano Lessons

The fast and easy way for children 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.

Children 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. Each child is taught individually.

Each child receives individual attention and goes at their own pace. All music is thoroughly learned at the lesson, which makes practice at home easier! 

Because there is a heavy emphasis on sight-reading and independence, kids are able to play the music they love quicker and tend to level up in their books at a faster rate than the publisher advertises, so they’re more confident at home.

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!

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 learn it 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 music they play.

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

    Lessons are customized to what your child wants to play and learn instead of being forced into playing things only the teacher wants, which leads to boredom and wanting to quit.

  • 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.

    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 everyone to come and learn, 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 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 qualifactions I have a list on my about page called Just The Facts click here and I’ll take you striaght to the list.

    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.
