Piano Lessons

The Delta State University Department of Music offers piano instruction to K-12 students in Cleveland and the surrounding communities through the Piano Preparatory Program.  We provide students with a quality piano preparatory program directed by our piano faculty:

Students have weekly classes or lessons with either DSU piano faculty or a DSU student teacher and perform at a recital each semester (15 weeks).  They learn keyboard skills, music theory, and solo and ensemble repertoire.  Students are expected to practice at home every day.  Each student has an opportunity to play at a master class with one of our piano faculty or guest artists every semester.
