Director and degree-wielding instructor Susane Reis teaches the Harmony Road music method, a comprehensive program allowing students of all ages to develop a strong technical foundation and absorb musical concepts during group classes. Parental involvement is encouraged in age-appropriate lessons in which children ages 18 months to 12 years train their ears, write compositions, and plunk out chords to complement the melodies of howling coyotes. Recreational teen and adult students learn practical keyboard skills while practicing note reading, improvisation, and playing in a wide range of musical genres. Class schedules are based on availability.
The Eugene Piano Academy, LLC
Ever since taking childhood piano lessons, Susane Reis has tickled the ivories in college, graduate school, and while touring with bands throughout the US. It wasn't until moving to Eugene, however, that she encountered the perfect tool for teaching the instrument to future generations of pianists: the Harmony Road music method. Rooted in group classes, the comprehensive program helps children aged 18 months to 12 years train their ears, refine their keyboard skills, and even write their own compositions.
Once they have three to four years of piano experience under their belt, pupils can enroll in The Eugene Piano Academy, LLC's private lessons. In these sessions, Susane and her fellow teachers further hone students' skills by focusing on everything from jazz improvisation to playing entire Bach concertos with just your nose.
