Private Piano Lessons

fingersreedIt is my joy to start each learner on their own musical journey. Whether your child uses piano as a foundation to other instruments, incorporates music as a lifelong hobby, or pursues it as a career, I am honored to guide them on the way!

Studio Location

Maple Avenue Music operates from the Wenger home which warmly welcomes you! Conveniently located less than a mile from routes 422 and 501, Maple Avenue Music has ample parking, a waiting area during private lessons for parents & siblings, as well as restroom access.
