Welcome

Here at Folsom Piano Academy, we believe that music can have a positive impact on your life. We believe that learning the piano can be a fun and enjoyable experience. Our students learn valuable life skills like perseverance, patience, attention to detail, confidence and a greater ability to communicate.

 

We have served the greater Folsom area since 1996. We take pride in teaching students how to read music and become proficient piano players. Our staff consists of dedicated teachers with advanced degrees in piano performance and pedagogy. Each teacher is encouraged to collaborate with their co-teachers to provide students with the best experience possible.  We tailor our methods so that each student can enjoy a lifetime of music and reach their full potential.

 

With the advent of group lessons, hundreds of students have been able to experience the joy of learning how to play the piano Folsom Piano Academy. By using a digital piano lab with headphones, students receive individualized instruction in a group setting and develop confidence in playing for others.

 

Whether the lessons are for an adult or a child, you have the choice between several different options for piano lessons. We invite you to tour our studio and come experience the excitement of music!

Jeanette's Teacher Tip:

 

There is much to be said about proper posture at the piano.  The most common problem I see is students who sit too low at their pianos at home.  A regular chair is not tall enough for any age student.  Sitting too low creates "lazy" hands, meaning that the student's wrists tend to hang below the level of the keys.  Some even rest their palms against the piano.  A big no-no! 

 

Also, slouching is a big concern.  Not only is it bad for the child's spine, it encourages them to rest their elbows into their lap, inhibiting them from being able to freely move across the keyboard as needed.  This undesireable posture then extends to their fingers resulting in a weak first finger joint. 

 

There is a lot to be said about sitting tall, chest out.  Not only will this greatly improve the student's overall posture and health, it will also have a positive impact on their state of mind as they practice and, therefore, result in better practice!  So, next time you're at the piano, be proud!  Sit Tall and Smile!
