OUR PIANO LESSONS
COMBINING PROGRESS & PASSION FOR THE PIANO

Playing the piano is an elegant skill, and those who have mastered the black-and-white keys are happy to play on their own or accompany any other instrument. But before the world's best pianists have reached virtuoso status, they began with baby steps-finding middle C, focusing on posture, learning how to practice. 

Liberty Music Academy takes your student through these baby steps so that they can reach their goals. Whether they want to be the next Mozart or just learn to play songs for the family, your student will learn how to glide their fingers across the keys to make wonderful music. They will confidently produce one note after another in perfect rhythm. All of our piano lessons throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth area are tailored to your student. 

And we keep piano classes fun! Passion over perfection - we don't want our students to feel pressured to pull off a Beethoven on the first try! We keep piano enjoyable, so your student will develop skills and a lifelong love for the instrument.

QUESTIONS ABOUT PIANO LESSONS

Is there a proper age to start learning the piano?

There's no strict age requirement for learning the piano, but we recommend starting at around six years old for physical development reasons. At this age, the student's hand can easily span five keys. They also have fine motor skills to move each finger independently.

Do parents play a role in the piano lessons?

Absolutely! Parent involvement is HUGE in piano lessons especially for students ranging from 6-10 years old. We invite them to sit and watch in order to guide the student as they practice outside of lesson time! We also ensure that our instructors are very clear in their expectations of practice time and assignments each week by leaving notes, and also emailing you lesson notes each week after lessons. 

 
PIANO LESSONS FOR BEGINNERS

Liberty Music Academy offers beginner piano lessons to students in and around Collin County, TX under our seasoned instructors; watchful eye.

TECHNIQUE

Improper technique can lead to bad habits that hold students back. We teach your student how to sit correctly at the piano and how to position their hands, wrists, and fingers.

MUSIC THEORY

A major part of becoming a complete musician is a thorough understanding of music theory.  In each lesson, new musical concepts are taught that help to propel your student forward.

NOTE READING

Your student will learn to read music notation and follow the notes on the treble and bass staff. Once they learn the ropes, they will be able to learn any song they desire.

REPERTOIRE

Together with their instructor, your student will go through repertoire in their lesson books, which they will practice weekly. Every four months, their hard work will culminate in recital performances.

Frequently Asked Questions...

Do I need a piano at home to take music lessons?

It is ideal if you do have a piano at home, but you can start lessons with our piano teachers by using an electric keyboard to practice on at home. Most of our beginner students buy small electric keyboards to practice on at home. We recommend a keyboard that has regular-sized keys and a touch-sensitive response. A touch-sensitive keyboard means if you press a key harder it will play louder and if you press a key softer it will play quieter. 

What are the lesson rates for my student? 

Our lesson rates just really depend on the needs of each individual student. Whether you are looking for 30 or 60 minute lessons, in-home or online, etc. We highly recommend contacting our office to learn more, and or registering your student for a trial lesson. This will allow all students and families the opportunity to gain more information, an idea as to whether or not music lessons are something they like and or want, with no obligation to continue lessons on a weekly basis. 

On which days can I schedule my weekly lessons? 

We do our very best to accommodate all of our student's schedules. If you are a new student without a current schedule, you can contact our office and get your lessons booked on a schedule that fits you best. If you are a current student needing to switch your schedule, you can either contact our office to make the adjustment or discuss the available options/availability with your teacher.  

How does payment work? Am I required to sign a contract?

We focus on making payment as convenient and accommodating as possible for all of our students and families. All billing is done on the 1st of every month. When students join our academy in the middle of the month, we do prorate lessons for the remainder of the month. There is a one-time $30 registration fee per family, and the best part...no contract or commitment. All we ask is that you provide us with at least 30-days notice prior to cancellation. You can complete this form on our website. 

How long should my student be practicing daily/weekly?

Practice time should not be measured by how long a student is practicing, but instead measured by how productive a student is during their practice time. If a student a playing a song over and over for 2 hours without breaking measures down and fixing errors, their practice could be doing them more struggle and frustration than productive help. Additional questions about practice should be discussed with your student's teacher/instructor. 

What happens if I can't make my scheduled lesson?

At Liberty Music Academy, we know things happen! For this reason, we do provide make-up lessons/credit for students who miss a scheduled lesson. In order to receive a make-up lesson, we just ask that you notify our office/teacher about your absence at least 24-hours in advance. If a make-up lesson becomes unavailable, you will be credited for the upcoming months' lessons.
