There’s nothing better than learning fast! The Silva Piano Method has all the details you need to practice and for parents to check. There’s a cd with the pieces you are learning and you can sing along using the do- re -mi- notes. A number of parents observing their kid’s lessons have learned how to play just by practicing too! We encourage parents to sit in at the lessons.
Sibling students may have lessons at the same time, one with either Dr. or Mrs. Silva in a separate studio!
Tuition: Flexible payment options, by the month or by the year divided into 2 term payments (discount).

Silva Piano Studios offers ‘above the bar’ piano instruction. A unique piano studio where you will find no less than three concert grand pianos that lessons are given on. My son began lessons when he was in second grade with the Silvas’. They inspired and opened up a world of music and appreciation of it to him and our entire family. He is now a senior and has benefited greatly from being under their tutelage. They train students to be true musicians. Never disappointed and worth every cent.Patrice T.
