Thank you for teaching me piano. It’s really fun to learn from you. You use funny words every time you teach me, and I always have a smile on my face after you teach me.

Piano Lessons

Cascade Piano Studio welcomes piano and organ students 5 years and older, from beginners to proficient musicians. We emphasize practical skills to encourage a lifelong love of music, and we adapt our teaching method to the style and idiosyncrasies of each student.

All piano lessons share the pleasure of music through metaphor, humor, creativity, and lots of laughter. We also encourage students to play multiple styles of music — from classical to popular works — so they can feel comfortable in today's musical world.

Piano Lessons
Private piano lessons are available in 30-, 45-, and 60-minute sessions in a safe, comfortable area of the founder's Seattle home. Lessons cover:

  • Technique

  • Repertoire Building

  • Music Theory

  • Rhythm Skills

  • Fluent Note Reading

Lessons also prepare students to play comfortably with friends and fellow musicians in piano duets, chamber music groups, school orchestras, and other ensembles. In addition, we hold two student recitals during the year (December and May); and, on occasion, students participate in workshops and music festivals, including the CWU Sonatina Festival, Seattle Young Artists, the Performing Festival of the Eastside, the Helen Crowe Snelling competition, and the National Federation of Music Clubs Festival.

Organ Lessons
We offer hour-long organ lessons to students on various organs in Seattle. Lessons require at least two years of piano study and cover:

  • Pedal and Manual Technique

  • Accompaniment and Religious Service Playing

  • Repertoire Building

  • Organ Registration and Orchestration

Piano and organ lesson fees vary based on the length of the lesson and discounts are available for families with multiple students. Please contact us to learn more about our fees and payment policies:
