Piano Lab is a dynamic, group learning environment located in Alexandria, VA. Our program was designed to ensure that students do not simply, ‘take piano lessons’, but that they achieve Lifelong Musicianship.
By providing and environment and structures that help students maintain both their enthusiasm and discipline over the time it takes to learn the language of music.
Students are MUCH more likely to remain committed when provided…
Music is a language that any child can learn to speak, if given the right method and support. We want to make it easier for families to reach real, sustainable music literacy rather than another generation of adults who say, “I took lessons when I was a kid but I can’t remember a thing!”
So, we have developed Piano Lab Anywhere.
PLA is our a Live VIrtual Classroom where groups of students will meet online for weekly lessons with their own teacher, Ms. Marilyn, the founder of Piano Lab. Together they will receive instruction, ask questions, play games with other students, and receive resources to use at home during their practice week.
PLA uses the same curriculum as our in-person classes, and is designed to guide students ages 5 and up in achieving layers of mastery that make them solid readers and performers while also introducing them to other areas of interest such as composing and improvisation.
The lessons are provided using a blend of Zoom Conference Technology and our own web tools. The classes are scheduled to provide a time and ‘place’ to meet (something that we find is more motivating than an automated program) but when necessary, families can watch the class recordings making it very flexible for busy families.
Who is a good candidate for Piano Lab Anywhere?
Monthly tuition for PLA classes is $69 but our 6-Week Pilot programs are only a single payment of $29 per student.

Pre-Level One for ages 5-7
Tuesdays 10:00 am Beginning May 14th
Level One for Ages 8 and Up
