DMI Piano Teachers are Pros

At DMI we only employ professional musicians. That is, musicians who are actively earning an income from teaching piano lessons and performing their trade! That’s important because a working pro won’t just run scales or teach chords, they have an entirely different conversation with their students. When you are out in the world and in front of audiences on a regular basis, you understand not just how to play music, but how to play it so that it connects with people. Let’s face it, connecting with people through music is better than just playing it!

So regardless of the genre you are interested in, or your skill level… we have something to get you going! Especially when you factor in our workshops that round off piano knowledge and knowledge of the music industry, our Master Classes and recitals, DMI students are better prepared for a transition into applying their talents with a performance group or in whatever way lines up with their goals!

Call us today to discuss piano lessons ~ also, be sure to ask about our live performance and studio recording workshops for piano or keyboard players, Master Classes, guest artist clinics and more! The best part is that all of these things are included in your being a student at DMI.

  •  Rythms and Beats
