Want to learn Piano?
How this works:
Taking piano lessons is the best place to start for most students! It’s easy for very young students to feel successful right away. Learning the basics on the piano is very common, so you can get the right foundation of music. Many students keep taking piano lessons all the way through high school and into adulthood, but others will take a few years of piano lessons and then try guitar, drums, violin, voice, or another instrument. Many schools require several years of piano lessons before you can play percussion (a coveted and sought after position to play in the band).
We have private lessons for ages 5 – adult, beginning through advanced levels, and we offer the highly acclaimed Brighter Notes Piano Classes for children ages 6 – 12, beginning – level 1B (refer to the Brighter Notes Piano Tab at the top for more info on this fun class for kids).
Which one of these options will work best for you? We will help you and your student figure out the best way for them to learn, no matter the situation.
At our studio, we have many types of piano teachers. You can learn pop songs, learn to read music, or focus on playing chords by ear. Most students will start with a curriculum that lays the foundation and then teachers will customize lessons to YOUR interests.
If you are an adult who wants to return to piano lessons, you will be surprised how much will come back to you! In no time, you’ll be playing the music that you love and impressing your family and friends!
To take piano lessons, you will need a keyboard or piano at home to practice. You can purchase a keyboard with 61 keys to get started, but you will need the full 88 keys (we recommend that they are weighted so they feel like a real piano), a pedal (so the sound can be sustained and sound better!), and a stand to hold your music. Many parents purchase an acoustic piano used (you’ll want to hire a piano mover because they are heavy!) but others love to start with a keyboard so the student can practice with headphones
We care about your musical interests
Loving the music you play is essential to a good piano learning experience. That is why our teachers will always strive to help you learn the style and types of music you love to make the music come alive in your lessons and practice. And if you don’t have one style or type of piano music you love, our teachers will help you discover it!
Good technique starts here
While emphasizing the style of music you love is important, good technique is vital to successfully playing piano. We will always work to make sure that all of our piano students are not only enjoying their lessons, but learning the “right” way so they can be a successful pianist the rest of their life.
High quality piano teachers
Our goal is to hire the best piano teachers in the Treasure Valley area. But more than that, our teachers are fun and engaging and always encouraging to their students. We perform professional background checks on all of our teachers before they are allowed to teach your student.

Yes. Even if you don’t have a musical background you can ask the teacher for advice on how to help your child practice. By simply monitoring that they are doing exercises a certain number of times per day the student will progress. Parents will occasionally sit in on their child’s music lesson to get an idea of the proper way a song should sound or how the student should be positioning their hands.
