Who can take piano lessons?
ThePurplePiano offers lessons to students of all ages and abilities.
Do you offer recitals?
Yes! There are a minimum of 2 recitals per year. We've had some lovely recitals at Muse Performance Space in Lafayette and Steinbaugh Pavillion in Louisville. Recitals are meant to be stress-free opportunities for students to share all the hard work they have been putting in. While not a requirement, we encourage every student to participate and view recitals as positive musical experiences that can also help to build strong life skills.
Where do lessons take place?
Lessons with Haley take place in her home studio in Louisville. Lessons with other instructors take place in your home in the Boulder/Denver metro areas. Virtual lessons are also offered.
Do I need a piano at home?
Students are required to have an instrument at home to practice on. An acoustic piano or a digital keyboard with 88-weighted keys are both wonderful options. Weighted keys are ideal to build correct technique.
Are there any costs aside from monthly tuition?
Additional costs include the initial purchase of an instrument/instrument accessories, and music books as needed.
How is billing handled?
ThePurplePiano uses My Music Staff to manage invoicing, payments, scheduling, resource sharing, and event registration. Payments can be made via credit card or ACH on this platform.
Are the Instructors background checked?
Health and safety is the number one priority at ThePurplePiano. Online piano lessons and outdoor yoga are available!
