Piano Lessons at the Wichita Music Academy

The piano is one of the most versatile instruments, and in the United States, it’s the most-played instrument out there.  You can play Liszt & Beethoven, Billy Joel or Alicia Keys, country music in a bar band, or hymns on Sunday morning.  No matter what your musical preference, the teachers at the Wichita Music Academy will help you become the pianist you want to be. We can introduce you to the fundamentals of music reading, technique and theory, and use YOUR FAVORITE SONGS in your lessons. You don’t need a piano to take lessons; a quality electronic keyboard will suffice at first.  (We can help you if you don’t have something to play!)

Why should we take piano lessons at the Academy?‍

Our teachers are warm and friendly, and they get to know each student and parent. We work with each student to develop a lesson plan that fits the student’s unique needs and favorite type of music. Whether you’re a 7-year-old beginner or a 70-year-old returning to lessons, we’ll get to know what you want to accomplish musically and help you achieve your goals.

What styles of piano do you teach?‍

We teach just about everything – classical, rock, pop, contemporary worship, country, you name it.

What ages do you teach?‍

We’ve had piano students as young as 5, but our oldest beginner was 94.

Do I need to know how to read music?

‍Absolutely not.  Students from beginners to advanced are welcome here.

Do I need a piano to learn the instrument?

No, you don’t have to have a piano per se.  But you will need something to play at home.  A quality electronic keyboard will get you going just fine.  If you don’t have access to one, we can help you choose one that will work for you.

Are there piano recitals?‍

We don’t have the sort of recitals where you have to play Rachmaninoff from memory for stern-faced judges.  We DO have fun student showcases in summer and winter; you can play music you like for your friends and family.  Our showcases are not in some corner of the store but in a nice venue with sound, lighting and video recording – you can be on YouTube if you want to! This is a great opportunity for your family from far away to see your progress.  And, unlike some, we don’t charge a fee to perform.
