performance is an adventure...

...and education is an art.

“Music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossible to be silent.”

Piano Instruction

At Arts Detroit, we offer a classically-based curriculum for students of all ages. Our approach focuses on learning from method books for beginning and intermediate students, with an emphasis on technique and theory. We offer both group classes and private lessons.

Students as young as 4-years-old may begin taking lessons with us, given they have the ability to count to 10 and know the alphabet. Adults are welcome here, too!

Private Lessons

Students as young as 4 may begin taking private lessons, though we encourage starting any student between the age of 4 and 9 in our Piano Readiness program to give them an idea of what it is like to study an instrument, give them a foundation in theory, and make sure taking lessons is something they truly want to do before making the investment.

Any student taking private piano lessons must have access to a home piano or full-sized keyboard in order to practice properly. Parents are highly encouraged, especially with younger students, to sit in on the lesson and be engaged with the child’s learning in order to help them practice at home.

Private lesson cost*:

30 minutes/week = $270 per quarter (three $90 payments)
45 minutes/week = $405 per quarter (three $135 payments)
1 hour / week = $540 per quarter (three $180 payments)
1 hr 15 min / week = $675 per quarter (three $225 payments)
1 hr 30 minutes / week = $810 per quarter (three $270 payments)

*prices are based on signing a one year contract

Note that there is an additional charge for music fees, lesson books, supplemental material, performance opportunities, etc. Please see our payment policies for more information.
