    I am interested in adult private lessons_I took lessons for several years in my youth but this was a long time ago.

    Hello there,

    I am a complete beginner who has always wanted to learn to read music and play piano. I’m working part-time now and have some extra time to pursue this goal. I would prefer a weekly class in the am if possible. Tuesdays or Thursdays work best.

    Thank you!
