The group piano lessons for adults are great! The atmosphere is relaxed and inspiring, and as an absolute beginner I was truly amazed by what I could do after just one lesson. A great group and super fun!

This place is awesome. My daughter is in one of the group piano classes and we've been to a few of the events and open mic nights. The owner is very open and imaginative and the space has a creative ambiance. It makes for a really great experience overall.

Fantastic place to take your music playing to the next level no matter whether you're just starting or quite advanced. It's a fun, supportive center for creative expression, including group painting nights that are excellent. Everything at the center is fairly priced. Check it out!

A GREAT place, nice atmosphere, excellent brand new equipment and staff, just in one class my daughter can tell where the "do" key is located and what finger she needs to use to play it! when I was a kid learned with the same Yamaha system and I can tell is fun and really easy for them; I'm so happy to find this place for my kids! I guess is the only place teaching it here in Sac.

My 5-year-old son has made significant growth since starting piano at Lafitte Music Center only six months ago; he is already playing chords and playing with both hands simultaneously. He is learning to hear notes and read music so naturally and easily. He has so much fun learning new songs and even composing his own. What’s more, I’m finally having my own ah-ha moments all these years after traditional piano lessons frustrated me.

Love this place. It is a place I get me time and paint. The instruction is fabulous and everyone there is super friendly. You never feel new to the place and that is one of the best parts, like coming home and spending time with family and friends. Tuesdays are now one of my favorite days of the week.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are your covid procedures?

All our instruments or work stations are spaced 6 feet apart, and sanitized after each lesson.

What are the differences between group and private lessons?

Group: We alternate one on one instructions (total of 30 minutes) and group activities (total of 30 minutes).

Example of group activities: warm ups, scales, fingerobics, chord progressions, ensemble song, note reading, theory, rhythm work, etc.

Individual work is done with the help of headphones and help the child learn how to practice on his own. Each student learn his own repertoire, at his own pace and level. The teacher helps the students individually during individual work and the student learns how to practice in class, setting up good habits for home practice. The student still have freedom to chose part of his/her repertoire.

Our group curriculum is well organized and have clear goals and expectations that we have researched, experimented and tested for the past five years.

Private: During a private lesson, the student has undivided attention from the teacher, and usually follows a book or a curriculum that the teacher recommends. While we don’t control what is taught in private lessons, we recommend only teachers that follow certain criteria such as: degrees, pedagogy, patience, student’s progress, love of teaching.

Our teachers both teach group and private lessons.

When do you recommend private lesson over group?

We usually recommend private lessons for students with special needs, or very specific goals, or if your schedule doesn’t fit our program schedule.

How can the student have individual practice within a group lesson?

During their individual work time, the students switch to headphones and electric instruments that we provide in class: electro acoustic guitars, electric violins, mute systems for brass, etc.

Do you accept vouchers?

Yes we accept vouchers from Visions, Inspire, Horizons, San Juan District, South Sutter. If your voucher is not listed here, please contact us.
