Adult Special Needs Piano

Adult Special Needs Piano Lessons 

We love to work with individuals with special learning needs and believe that everyone should have the opportunity to gain the benefits of the piano.

Nearly everyone can enjoy performing at the piano, thereby gaining all the benefits thereof!   We offer lessons to students who are blind, those with autism, dyslexia, Downs, Asperger’s, stroke victims and dementia.  We also offer lessons to those with physical handicaps due to illness or accident missing use of arms or fingers.

Our non-traditional methods work for individuals who need a different approach.  The more they engage with the piano, the greater the benefit, permitting more engagement.

Contact us for a no-obligation appointment to see how the Power of Piano may help!
