|Students play a variety of genres such as Allegro Grazioso & Moon River!
- Just getting started? If you can borrow a keyboard from
a friend or family member, that's a great place to start!
- Ready to make an
investment? We recommend a full, 88-key piano or digital keyboard with weighted keys and a pedal. As well, find an appropriate
bench or chair for arms to have an "L" shape. Younger students may need a small stool to raise and support
- Our Studio go-to music store? Strait Music, servicing the Central Texas
area, is a great resource for keyboards and pianos and provide a variety of payment plans for both new and used instruments.
They provide piano tuning services as well. Our studio has been a satisfied customer for many years!
- Where else to shop? Craig's List, discount, electronic stores and large Clubs such as Sam's
or Costco often have great keyboard deals especially around the holiday season.
We use the Piano Adventures series including Lesson, Technique, Theory and Performance. As well, we supplement with
Alfred's Mastworks Classics and Scales, Chords, Arpeggios & Cadences. Throughout the year, students may also
have a varied genre solo and holiday pieces centering around their personal musical style.
- Other stuff? We also recommend a portable, digital metronome to practice with at home and bring to lessons.
It is also great idea to have a bag or backpack to transport these items.
