NC Music Center is the premiere music school for students of all ages in the Charlotte area! Both of our children are soaring, and we credit their musical growth fully to the high-quality instruction they are receiving at NC Music Center. We so appreciate the high standard of excellence that Ms. Cook and her instructional team provide with care and consistency.
Piano lessons are the foundation of learning music, especially for beginners. The development of theory, note-reading, ear-training, rhythm, proper technique, and musicianship provide a comprehensive knowledge of music that can later be applied to any instrument and style of music. We start at ages 3 1/2 and up however most students begin at ages 4-5 for beginner private piano lessons as a longer attention span and the ability to retain information is becoming more natural at that age. Parents are encouraged to practice with their children to help encourage them and be their cheerleader as they learn to play the piano.
We offer piano lessons to students of all abilities in all styles from beginners to very advanced students. We have a variety of students-some who want to play just for fun and some who attain high scores in festivals and competitions. Our students play a variety of repertoire from classical, to fun popular music tunes and so much more. Regardless of repertoire choice, all students taking lessons will be trained with proper technique to create a beautiful tone and ease of movement. We also have many adult piano students who have a variety of goals.
It is necessary for each student to have access to an acoustic piano or a digital keyboard with 61-88 weighted keys to practice on each day. Each student is encouraged to purchase an acoustic piano if possible, since nothing can take the place of its touch and sound. Please let us know if you would like suggestions or recommendations when deciding what to purchase.
