Spring Semester: Feb 6, 2023 – June 17, 2023

Individual & Team Lessons

At Hoffman Academy, students of all ages receive so much more than piano lessons. Our innovative, foundational approach encourages eager students to understand music—rather than simply playing the notes. Your journey begins with a foundation in making music by ear and blossoms into a complete music education including solfége, dictation, composition, improvisation, sight-reading music theory, and more. By teaching students to truly understand music, the Hoffman Academy creates confident pianists for life.
