PIANO LESSONS

At Laura Jean Music Academy, we offer weekly piano lessons taught by our teachers from all different backgrounds. We currently operate virtually through Zoom. We give students the option to study pop, contemporary, or jazz styles. They may opt to be taught with the Associated Board of the Royal School of Music (ABRSM)  curriculum, which is a rigorous curriculum including specific music theory, sight reading, set pieces, etc. See the section below for ABRSM Exams. Students are encouraged to hold recitals on Zoom or film music videos twice per semester.
