Allegro Piano School - Piano lessons for adults and kids

Piano playing benefits both kids and adults!

Deep down, everyone has an ear for music! Piano is the "king" of instruments... and is truly an instrument for all seasons of life.

Learning to play piano is a joyful journey -- one that returns you to beloved old songs and connects you to new ones.

Both adults and children gain science-backed benefits from piano playing.

Benefits for adults

You may think you can't teach an old dog new tricks. But that's not true. I've taught first-timers and returning players in their mid 70s and beyond.

Playing piano reduces stress for harried people of all generations. It improves memory, keeps people physically and mentally fit, stimulates connections between the two brain hemispheres, boosts self-esteem, and more. If you live by yourself, piano playing is also a great antidote to loneliness.

Benefits for children

Kids gain skills they need for life... the ability to focus, hand-eye coordination, spatial reasoning, self-discipline, and improved academic skills. Who knew you could give your child a break from schoolwork to play piano, and turn him or her into a better student?

Not to mention, it's a fabulous way to cut down on screen time and keep them out of trouble!


Work with a truly professional teacher, shorten your learning curve, and love playing piano.

From skeptic to ecstatic...

With no musical background of my own, I was skeptical that my kids could learn without my knowing music. To my surprise, they’ve learned a ton and are playing real music! That’s a huge win... for them and for me! Carol Parks gives quality instruction, gracious feedback, and plenty of encouragement. I'm ecstatic that she's teaching my children!

Early afternoon/daytime lessons are perfect for retirees,

adults with flexible schedules, and homeschoolers.

I want to help as many people as possible learn to play the piano. If you have a flexible professional schedule, or are retired, a stay-at-home parent or a homeschooler, I invite you to take advantage of my daytime availability during the lunch and early afternoon hours.
