Piano Lessons in Needham – Newton, MA


Piano lessons at Newton Music Academy

We teach individual piano lessons to children and adults. Our piano students receive weekly lessons with our highly trained and experienced piano teachers.

Lesson Plan

Lesson plan is focused on developing confident technical skills, note reading, rhythm, theory and ear training. We prioritize effective (“Smart”) practice over long practice. We teach how to practice efficiently for better progress. We encourage using imagination to achieve better technical results. Songs are assigned according to the student’s technical goals and musical interests. Read about Our Educational Approach

Preparing for Auditions and Recitals

We prepare and encourage our students to audition for various performances, talent shows, college auditions and to share their talent with the community. The results of their musical commitment and talent are often impressive.  Read about musical accomplishments of NMA students. All piano students have several opportunities to perform each year. Our regular NMA recitals are held each May and December.
