What Makes Our Piano Lessons Different?
Highly Skilled Piano Teachers in Aurora
A piano lesson can only be as effective as the individual presenting the material, and our music educators have a tremendous amount of experience. Teachers at the Aurora School of Music have attended schools like Rice, the Oberlin Conservatory, the Cleveland Institute of Music, and more. Furthermore, many have earned masters degrees or achieved other high levels of music education. If you would like to learn more about the teachers you may work with, view our faculty page or contact us for a free trial lesson.
Performance and Recital Opportunities
Students of all ages at our school gain access to several student recitals every year. We set aside our performance hall and concert piano on certain weekends so our students can come together and perform for each other, family, and friends. It’s always special when you are able to show your loved ones what you’ve been learning, and additionally, performing in front of others on the piano will increase your confidence and overall skill level.
Masterclasses with Acclaimed Pianists
The Aurora School of Music has relationships with professional musicians around the world, and as a result, we are able to bring performing musicians in as Artists in Residence. These acclaimed musicians will work with nominated students in masterclasses and private lessons, and they will often present a recital – an exciting opportunity for any student, whether a child, high schooler or adult.

Children, Teens, and Adults are Welcome
Piano Lessons For Children and Teens in Aurora
We’ve worked with thousands of children at the Aurora School of Music, and we understand how to make lessons and music classes fun, engaging, and educational. Children won’t progress on their instrument if they don’t enjoy lessons and practice – but fun and games alone don’t make a competent pianist.
We will find engaging, age-appropriate music for your child, introduce them to drills and practice methods that are both effective and enjoyable (like Dozen a Day, piano methods, and leveled repertoire), and make sure they go home with actionable items to practice each week. You’ll be hearing your child play tunes and pieces on the piano in no time at all, and we will aim to give you a love and appreciation for music that will last for a lifetime.

Whether you are an adult beginner or an amateur with many years of playing experience, we can help you reach your goals at the piano.

Learn how to sight read or play without tension in your shoulders and arms? We will pursue a holistic approach to piano teaching with you, and you will start to improve in your first lesson.
Classical, Jazz, Rock, and Pop Piano Lessons
