Keyboard Lessons

The ebony and ivory of a piano or keyboard is where the theory behind music really comes alive. Thousands of rock and roll hits were written on the piano and some of the most memorable solos and riffs ever played involve the black and white keys – “Light My Fire” by The Doors, Elton John’s “Benny and the Jets,” and Sara Bareilles “Love Song.” Every rock star begins with the basics, and that usually means piano lessons and keyboard lessons.

At Scottsdale Music Academy in the Scottsdale Airpark, we believe every musician should be familiar with the keyboard, even if it isn’t your main jam. Taking a keyboard lesson to learn basic music theory and better understand the chord structures and tonality behind the sounds we create with music will only make you a stronger, more respected musician.

Your private music lesson is the playground to test out new styles of music. You’ll learn from your mistakes like a champion, and come out ready to take on the music world. We’ll play the songs you dream about at night and discover new tunes you never thought you could love. This is your practice space to get your playing off the ground or to the next level!

Private Keyboard Lessons Include:

  • Customized lessons
  • Music theory
  • Personalized video lessons
  • Monthly workshops
  • Monthly jam sessions
  • Music clinics

Private music lessons are available for guitar, drums, bass, keys, and voice every week for 30-minutes, 45-minutes, or 1 hour.

With our customized private, group, and coaching music lessons, you’ll hear and pick up important musician lingo that makes it possible to tell the entire band the key your favorite songs are played in and how to get from the introduction to the solo and from the last chorus to the final outro. Our keyboard students learn the keys, chords, and harmonies of music, while understanding how to read standard lead sheets and accomplish overall musicianship and technique.

Your group music lesson is designed like a real band rehearsal. You’ll team up with students and friends who play at your same skill level. You’ll choose songs together and contribute those great melodic riffs, beats that get you moving and note-bending tricks you’ve practiced during your private lessons. One of our expert music instructors will guide your group lesson, so you’re always learning and growing with every note that you play.

Group  lessons include:

  • Customized lessons
  • Music theory
  • Group video lessons
  • Monthly workshops
  • Monthly jam sessions
  • Music clinics

Weekly one-hour group music lessons are either taught as a band with a combination of guitar, drums, bass, keys, and voice or with multiple students playing the same instrument.

You’ll never go wrong jamming your favorite songs on a keyboard. You can accompany yourself while you sing, you’ll be able to support a choir with the right tones, harmonies, and instrumental music, or you can become a key member of your favorite music band – all by learning how to play the keys. Schedule a keyboard lesson today, and you’ll see just how sweet it is to play on a set of black and whites. Call Scottsdale Music Academy at 602-751-3537 today!
