I started taking adult piano lessons here about three months ago and I am extremely happy with this shop. The prices are very reasonable and the environment in the classroom has a great atmosphere. The teacher, Jill, is so kind and really just wants you to play your heart out. Within these three months, I can play many classical pieces!
