Learn to play the piano with your favorite DWMR pianists!
We're pleased to offer a limited availability of private lessons with some of our highly in-demand instructors.
Piano training is a natural complement to dance, and recent studies have indicated that learning at an early age may offer many benefits such as developing fine motor skills, aiding in emotional and behavioral maturation, and even helping students focus their attention, control their emotions, and diminish their anxiety.
