Music theory is taught in every piano lesson

Music theory and music reading are taught each week as part of your regular piano lessons.

Theory skills are consistently taught through a variety of musical games, writing music, singing, and performing, allowing each student to grow steadily in their understanding of music as they develop as a pianist.

Learning music theory is the basis of understanding how to read music and decode the symbols on sheet music, which opens up a much deeper understanding of music. It gives you the freedom to learn to play any piece of piano music you choose from the sheet music.

Developing the skill of reading music is like anything – it takes regular practice to become part of your foundation of musical skills.
