The piano division is the largest segment of the Preparatory Arts Program, offering piano lessons in the New Orleans area to beginning and transfer students from kindergarden through adult. The majority of our instructors hold advanced degrees and are certified by the Louisiana Music Teachers' Association and/or the Music Teachers' National Association. Students in 1st - 9th grade benefit from the pairing of private and group instruction, allowing for the creation of a solid theory foundation.

Prior to beginning piano lessons, we require a placement interview for all incoming school-aged students. This interview is intended to give us an opportunity to meet the child, assess what level they are on, and get a feel for their personality in hopes of placing them with a teacher who will be a good fit. Length of the lesson and teacher placement will be determined by the director.
If at the time of the interview, it is determined that there is not an appropriate group class for the student, a recommendation will be made that the student study privately only. The student will then be billed at the rates below until they are ready to enroll in a group class.
