Piano Lessons

At the Asheville Music School, we have seven piano teachers who have a wealth of experience as instructors and performers. We offer piano lessons for ages 3 and up. What style of music would you like to play….classical, jazz, ragtime, blues, gospel, pop, new age, or perhaps tunes from Broadway? You can pick any musical time period or any musical style and one of our teachers will be able to help you.

We also offer combination voice and piano lessons with a couple of our voice instructors. We offer piano lessons for those with special needs. Do you want to learn theory? No problem. Our instructors will include music theory as part of your piano lesson. We can also help you out if you want to learn a chord based approach to piano playing.
