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 at 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!

"Time to Practice"


Probably one of the biggest challenges and takeaways from the situation we have experienced this past year is how to remain productive when everything we do is from home.  It's so easy to lose track of time.  Days just seem to float by.  So more than ever, it's important to help your child learn to "schedule" their time.  Piano practice will only happen if it actually gets scheduled into their day.


First, they must have a practice goal based on how many minutes is appropriate for them.  Here's a handy chart:  


Beginners (Primer):  Minimum 50 minutes/week
Red Book (Level 1):  Minimum 75 minutes/week
Green Book/Orange Book (Level 2):  Minimum 100 minutes/week
Teal and Above (Level 3 and above):  Minimum 120 minutes/week 


Secondly, let them decide and schedule WHEN they will practice.  Have them be very specific for each day.  This gives them a feeling of control and responsibility.  Then your job is simply to remind them of THEIR schedule, just as you probably do with everything else in their life.  :)
