Like counting cards in Vegas or escaping the trunk of a Lincoln Continental, playing piano requires lots of practice and proper instruction. Perfect a new skill with today’s Groupon: for $40, you get four 30-minute private lessons at Joe's Piano Lessons in Euless (a $95 value). Music books are required for each lesson. Students can bring their own books or buy them from Joe for an additional fee.
A member of Music Teachers National Association, piano teacher Joe Naquin expounds on the theories and techniques behind pounding the ivories for first-time and experienced players alike. From a home studio in Euless, where his pets keep metronomic rhythm with their tails, four 30-minute periods of private instruction set students ages 5 and older on a mellifluous lifelong course of impressing at dinner parties. Encouraging each student to practice at home, Joe also keeps piano pupils busy with recitals throughout the year to show off their newly acquired chops. Lessons are available from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Joe's Piano Lessons
Joe Naquin, namesake of Joe's Piano Lessons, has witnessed firsthand the healing effects of music. He's taught students with ADD, physical disabilities, and even partial deafness how to tickle the ivories. And he's seen the way this form of self-expression can liberate them. Of course, his 30-minute piano lessons welcome any student willing to learn. He teaches everything from classical music to gospel and pop.
