Piano lessons are a great start for music instruction! We have the most qualified piano instructors at Knox Music Studios. Some frequently asked questions:

Piano lessons are great to start any time because the piano is so easy to play… After all, it really only takes one finger to press a key and you're off! We typically start piano students at 5 (or when they have starting reading). And, with our versatility, you can learn as "young" as 90!
We teach all styles of piano. Suzuki, traditional, jazz, improvisation, "by ear…" Any age student and skill level can be accommodated because we have instructors ready, willing and able to meet your needs.
Yes and no, it really depends on the student and their goals. All of our piano teachers will agree it is best you have access to a quality acoustic piano for most piano lessons. An acoustic piano develops the fine motor skills necessary to play music "musically" (i.e., reproducing the louds and softs of music). A digital piano is really not feasible for 95% of piano lessons. We teach on acoustic pianos here at our studios and often notice students struggling with their assignments… Only because they are practicing on inferior electronic instruments! Hence, a "plug-in" keyboard is okay, but really not the best for most piano lessons. More questions?
