Welcome to the Pianoforte Studio website!Feel free to browse the website to learn more about the studio. The artwork archive already includes 20 new pieces of artwork featuring characters from Sandra and Woo by other great artists, e.g. Richard: When you’re grown up, you’ll look back in horror to all those wasted hours of your youth and appreciate your current life much more. But to be honest, playing the piano is a great way to channel your inner artistic yearnings, and also to impress people who can’t tell real classical music talent from mere improvising. Not to mention, Sandra, that if Woo gets his hands on the piano, you’ll be forever embarrassed that your pet raccoon can play better than you. Look at it this way, when you it comes time to choose which nursing home to put dad in, you will look back at the piano lessons and time he made you waste practicing the piano, and carefully choose the most appropriate nursing home for him.

I have to confess that I didn’t enjoy those Saturdays spent with my teacher, who was a charming elderly lady, especially during the latter years. I tapped and tapped and tapped on the bathroom door, pretending to play the keyboard, when either of my parents was taking a bath. But where do I find a teacher who gives more than just piano lessons and is geared towards developing a musical child? I came across The Hoffman Academy as my husband and I were trying to decide whether we should already enrol our 6-year-old in piano lessons.
I was intrigued because the video lessons are available online for free and you can just use those and be fine. I said “our” because after all those years of piano lessons, I still had a lot of a-ha moments as my daughter and I learned together.
Since these are video lessons, you can fit it into your schedule easily. You can also watch the lessons again and again and again if you have to.


A student, whether a child or an adult, learns at his own pace, which is something that I highly value. New lessons refer back to old lessons, so the student actually sees how lessons and musical concept are related to each other. A parent without a musical background might feel doubtful about her child’s progress.
My husband and I both have a bit of background in piano, though he is definitely more musical that I am, and we love how the lessons are presented.
Whether you are a busy working mom, a work-at-home mom, or a stay-at-home mom, you are sure to find parenting and learning inspiration on our pages and parent education workshops to empower you to be your child’s first and best teacher.

Piano LessonsProfessional musician and instructor Sol Garnier has been teaching in Chicago since 1991.
The greatest inspiration for me is seeing my students get more and more excited each week about their lessons. If you have any questions or comments or would like more information about piano lessons, you can contact Julia here. I didn’t realise I could type at apparently high speed until people started asking me to type things up for them.
Students will learn the parts of the violin and their functions, how to care for and maintain their instrument, fingering positions, bowing techniques, reading music and music symbols. Students focus on fundamentals of note reading, tone production, embouchure strength, hand position, and posture. I’m embarrassed to say that all I have to show for all those years is that I can read and play notes automatically.
I only kept at it because, gulp, I felt guilty that my parents bought my piano after incessant badgering from me.
With a piano and an eager child, the next step was to find a teacher who fits the ideal in my head. However, there are also complete supplemental materials for different piano skill levels for only $20 for each unit. We especially love the lesson on music composition because it makes the student aware of the different components of music early on. This is important to me because I feel that an ear for music adds enjoyment to learning music instead of just reading notes. Hoffman Academy encourages parents to send their kids’ videos, and through it, the Hoffmans have seen that students do manage to have excellent posture, hand position, etc.
Because the program is flexible and easily available, we have this tendency to postpone piano time. We have a four year old who has, from a very early age, been drawn to music and while we tried a few in-home lessons early on it wasn’t quite clicking. My name is Mariel, homeschooling mom of three, a Kindermusik educator, a Certified Positive Discipline Parent Educator, and editor of The Learning Basket.


His enthusiasm, teaching ability, and passion have earned him a reputation as one of Chicago’s most influential and effective instructors. If I can motivate you by by making the journey of learning piano an exciting adventure, the rest will follow naturally.
To help you stay inspired and engaged, I vary my techniques and tailor each session to your needs. Garnier is easily among the best and most experienced music instructors in the Chicagoland area.

And even when my lack of musical skills became apparent, I felt that I just had to keep going to my piano teacher! Hoffman, as we fondly call the pianist-founder of the website, has become our piano teacher.
However, some parents might feel unsure of the effectiveness of the program because the face-to-face interaction is not there. But it hasn’t taken away the joy that my daughter gets every time we do have a lesson. I’m encouraged to look into this approach and the $20 per unit cost is an additional and much appreciated motivator. With a focus on pop, rock and jazz, the skills you develop will be anchored in a solid foundation of technique and music theory. If you don’t read music, I play the lessons myself so you can record them with a smartphone and practice at home.
If I had actually done the homework, I would be better at math and I wouldn’t struggle with it as much. She eagerly asks for it and loves playing with the practice mp3 songs and answering the activity sheets.
Whether you’re a young beginner or a classical player ready to expand your horizon in harmony, arranging, style analysis and composing, his lessons will help you develop self-confidence and enthusiasm. I make use of my extensive CD collection, play along with you while you try out new exercises, make up games, demonstrate tricks to practice, joke to help you relax, and use my extensive teaching library.
I regretted abandoning piano lessons in third grade so much that I’ve actually signed up to start over from scratch. Zombie!) is something that even my little boy (who sits in with his sister sometimes) has not forgotten! Kids have no idea what wonderful, productive things they could be doing rather than watching Spongebob Squarepants or playing Xbox.
Lessons are customized to each student’s ability and interest in a fun learning environment.
