  • Six years old is a great age for children to begin.
  • Parents should be close by as children may need guidance during a lesson.

Mary started teaching my daughter piano when she was four years old, and we absolutely love her! She is patient and... kind and provides the perfect balance between letting wiggly kids be themselves and focusing on the task at hand. Her teaching methods work - we took a break from lessons when my daughter started Kindergarten, but she still sometimes sits down at the keyboard and I hear her repeating the things Mary taught her almost a year ago! We are so excited to be returning to Mary for online lessons!read more

Books I Use

Online Piano Lessons are perfect for

  • Children ages 6 and above
  • Tweens and teens who are beginners and intermediate students
  • Adults looking to learn a new skill, but unable to travel due to work or family obligations
  • Anyone looking for a super-convenient way to learn to play music

A 61 note keyboard in good working order is sufficient for a beginner (first 2 years). Keyboard should be located in a quiet room.

Miss Mary has been such a wonderful teacher. I took lessons with her when I was a child, and now both of my daughters are taking them as well!
