Piano Lesson Basics
Most of what we do is private lessons and piano is one of our main focuses. The piano is an amazing, magical instrument. It’s the perfect place for most students to start. Piano teaches technique and dexterity, theory and note reading, and provides a simple, linear road map of how music works. Once you have that foundation, you can take it anywhere: from impressive classical pieces, to your favorite pop song, to adding another instrument to your resume. Piano lessons are absolutely the best way for every music lover to immerse themselves in music.

Lessons for Beginners
How Old Does My Child Need to be to Start Piano Lessons?
We have a rule of thumb: If your child is excited about playing music now, they should start now. We start piano students as young as four. For kids younger than four who are excited about music, we have Musicologie Junior. Many of our teachers specialize in early childhood music education. They have the skills, patience and demeanor to help young students grow.
What About Adult Beginners?
Yes! We love adults who are up for the challenge of learning to play a instrument. It’s hard work but so rewarding. We’ll help guide you towards your goals and won’t make you do endless scales or theory exercises if that’s not what you’re into.
Did you know Musicologie was voted Best Music Instruction in Columbus by readers of Columbus Parents Magazine? We’ve been among the top studios in town in the trusted family publication since we opened our doors.
What about lessons for experienced piano players? If you have played before, you probably have a good idea of what you want to work on. We’ll match you with one of our advanced piano teachers. Some have doctorates and decades of experience teaching at the collegiate level. Some have masters degrees in piano pedagogy or have toured professionally as jazz sidemen. We offer a world-class, university level piano education.
Meet our piano students
Our piano students are incredibly diverse. We have 4 year olds just starting to explore music, high schoolers preparing for Berkelee auditions, and adults who have always wanted to play and are finally taking the leap.
Gio has been a student since 2013. He had never played before but is now taking on challenging pieces and performing for audiences.
Sophia has been studying piano since she was 5. She’s been working on accompanying herself and sang and played Lost Boy at the Musicologie Kids Recital.
