A Chat with Silver Piano Studio
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
[We] focus on classical and popular music. The starting age for most students for individual lessons is ages 5 and up. Loraine, the owner and piano instructor, was trained to teach theory, fingering technique, ear training and sight reading.
Do you provide any materials? What should your students expect to bring?
[We] use the follow books for beginners: Piano Pronto, Piano Adventure, Alfred Premier Piano, Hal Leonard Piano Library. In general, beginner student may complete the first set of books in four to five months.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Loraine taught in Iowa at West Music and Grand Music Studio. She moved to Albuquerque in March 2012. She primarily works with beginner to early-intermediate students and those focusing on classical music studies.
What do you love most about your job?
I like to teach my students that learning piano is not only about learning an instrument, it is about how to overcome challenges and evaluate the choices we made in life.
