Piano Lessons at the Teacher’s Place

If you do not have a piano and have no intention of getting one anytime soon, you might want to consider learning at our Awesome Piano teachers’ place instead. In fact, we do have students who have pianos at home, but they still do head over to our teachers’ place for the lessons. One of the reasons is due to convenience, perhaps it being nearer to where their office or school is located. More importantly, our teachers tend to have better quality pianos and also more conducive learning environments. This can help the student’s learning to be more efficient and productive. Take a look below at some of the profiles of our teachers.

*Kindly note that this is not the complete list, we still have other teachers.
