Piano Lessons

Piano is one of those very few instruments where you can play both melody and harmony at the same time. It just takes a simple pressure from your finger to produce a sound, making it easy and satisfying for most beginners.

Voice & Singing Lessons

Our lessons include bel canto (Italian classical), and voice technique for the beginners. This is the fundamental technique to develop proper voice health, pitch, natural tone, strength, range, quality and breath control. Usually lessons are focused on pronouncing vowels, vocal exercises, and song/arias to build your voice.
