How do our programs work?

This is the most convenient way possible to learn piano!

Our programs are structured to fit with your family, school and extra-curricular needs, while focusing on creating music.

Each week, students watch the corresponding video, interact with supplemental course material and follow a guided practice. Progress comes from demonstration of skills, and completion of assignments is expected. Students are to submit assignments through the student portal to Lowe Piano Studio. Personalized and individual feedback, including extra tips and plenty of encouragement, will be provided within 2 business days of submission.

Note: Students in K, 1st and 2nd grade will need a piano partner to watch the videos with them and supervise practice during the week. This is a steadfast rule, spanning my years of in studio/live teaching. Young students do best with supervision. Piano partners can be a parent, a grandparent, or an older sibling.

Students are encouraged to participate in a monthly, live online class with a cohort of 4-6 students. A cohort provides community and camaraderie of studying along with peers. These sessions will include music appreciation enrichment, masterclass-style performing opportunities, and group activities to reinforce learning.

Students should feel free to reach out to the teacher via integrated chat function and/or email.

Note: Specific method books will be required for many of the programs. These are to be purchased separately.
