Private Piano Lessons
(Solo / Buddy)
Our lessons explore piano beyond classical music, we also include some less commonly taught aspects of the piano such as:
Pop-style chord progressions
Simple jazz & blues
Focus on strengths
Our fun and engaging lessons are custom made to amplify our students' strengths. They acquire advanced techniques while learning the songs they love. We help them thrive and become the unique musicians they are born to be.
Enjoy the process
We play games to teach musical concepts and playing techniques. Songs are broken down into easy-to-understand patterns to build students' confidence as well as curiosity in playing the piano. After all, when we're having fun, we learn faster no matter what age we are!
Who Is This Right For?
Many beginner and intermediate students can benefit from this format. When you have a piano buddy, learning is more fun and exciting because it's done with a friend! Each student has their own piano to play on during the lesson. Students' progress is just as quick as individual lessons.
How Does Scheduling Work?
You can join our waiting list and have us pair your child with a piano buddy. You can also join with two children who are already friends and want to start learning piano together. Join our waiting list for partner piano lessons at Sunny Side Music Denton here.
What is Buddy Lesson?
In buddy lessons, students are learning alongside another student. Both students come together every week for 45-min lessons. Double the fun!
Sunny Side Music Denton hosts a Winter Party and an End of Year Recital every year. All students are invited to perform in. Both events are positive and nurturing environments where students can build their performance skills, confidence, and be part of a supportive piano community.
All students at Sunny Side Music Denton are welcome to take piano exams with the ABRSM (Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music). Exams can be a great motivator for some, but they're not for everyone. We never push a student to do an exam if it's not something they are interested in. Exams should always be a positive and rewarding experience, not something to be anxious about.
Part of learning to play the piano is daily (or nearly daily) practice. Your child will need your help in structuring and establishing a practice routine. While we always welcome parents to learn alongside their children, it doesn't matter if you can read music or not. You can inspire your child just by showing interest in their learning and be actively involved.

Piano students need at least a touch-sensitive keyboard to practice on. You can check out our How To Choose A Piano For Practice Guide Here.
