Do you wish you’d taken piano lessons as a child? Or do you wish you’d never quit? The Music Studio has the answer: Recreational Piano. We can’t fix the past but we can fill your future with music. All you have to do is enroll in Recreational Piano, the adult piano program offered by the Capital Region’s leading music school, whether in a BEGINNING class, for those with no previous piano training, or in a NO PRESSURE REFRESHER, for former piano students who want to get their skills back–or in an ONGOING course for those in between. Featuring The Music Studio’s highly experienced faculty, well-equipped classrooms, and small class size, these courses are fun and effective. Students at all levels learn at their own pace to play the music they love, with the guidance of our incredible teachers and the support of their classmates.

Our Beginning classes are for those who’ve never had a piano lesson but are ready to make music. Our Ongoing classes are for those who’ve gotten a start, but still need a large dose of instruction. Our No Pressure Refresher classes are for those who want to make their way back to the piano, as well as focus on the joy of making music together.

All classes cost $340, including books and materials. 


Tuesday at 10:30 a.m., beginning January 17

Wednesday at 8:00 p.m., beginning January 18


We have several ongoing classes–beyond beginner, but still learning concepts and skills. Fill out our interest form and we’ll help you determine which is the right fit for you. Or go ahead and enroll and we’ll give you a call!
