What people are saying about PPA:

"We thoroughly enjoyed the "festival" tonight. What an amazing group of young pianists. It was impressive to hear their ages and that they had mastered these pieces over the 10 week summer session. I was also delighted to see the many different ways that the students performed - on piano, keyboard, as duets, triplets even! and many with their teachers and fellow students as accompanists. I can see how Peery Studio has been successful - you make it fun and show appreciation for every student and their parents.
Next time I want to see the beginner class recital!"
"We are just finishing our first year at the Peery Academy. The program is amazingly comprehensive with ear training, memorization, flash cards, group lesson, theory, and staff books to name a few. From the beginning they teach your child how to play a simple song with beautiful dynamics and expression."
"Peery Piano Academy yields extraordinary results with children as young as 5. Their Habits Program is designed to teach good piano habits from the beginning and these habits stick for a lifetime, enabling the students to reach incredible heights later on."
"I have two children in the Peery Piano Academy for the last 3 years. My first child started in a different state and transferred in after 5 years of piano. She was required to do the "Habits" program to ensure that her skills were on track. While she had to do some significant "relearning" to get rid of poor habits and acquire proper ones, it was pain well worth the gain! My other child started with Peery. Both children are doing very well and have a solid foundation in theory, ear training, musical performance, muscular skills, chord use, and sight reading. They have also been taught good work ethic in being accountable for their practice efforts."
"I could not be happier with the musical education that my children receive at Peery. My children have 5 years of Peery Piano School Experience inclusive. The thing that I love the most about this program is that my kids are not only learning to read music and play notes, but to express music in such a beautiful way. They are also learning that with practice and work they can accomplish things that seemed impossible at the beginning."
"Peery Piano's tag line is "Right from the Beginning," and I literally choked up with tears when I took my daughter in to her first lesson. The children are trained in sight reading, ear training, expression and music theory, right from their very first lesson. The result is that no matter how far my daughter chooses to take her piano education, she will never have to quit because of flaws in her technique. She has been trained right, or correctly, and thoroughly, from the beginning. I feel so lucky to have access to this level of training, so close to me. (My sweet mother drove us 45 minutes away and paid countless thousands of dollars for our piano lessons... for a far inferior education which didn't go the distance.)"
"My two daughters are getting a very well rounded piano education at Peery Piano Academy. They get experience in hand muscle building exercises, sight reading, playing by ear, perfecting pieces, theory, technique, performing, classical music, popular music, and working with small groups. We get a book of about fifteen lesson plans at the beginning of each level so we know what we are working towards. Knowing the end from the beginning is great incentive!"
