At Silva Piano Studios, we offer piano instruction for children five years old through adults with all levels of training from beginner through university prep and beyond. Students learn to master the fundamentals of playing the piano in less time than other methods with our specially designed “Silva Piano Method©”. This approach is the result of over 20 years of research. Together, we have more than 60 years of combined teaching experience.
In only one year, beginners as young as five years old can learn how to play and read music at a level that is normally achieved in 3-5 years with other methods and adults are able to play their first Bach, Beethoven and Chopin pieces!
Intermediate and advanced students focus on developing technique and repertoire. There are a number of venues in which our students perform such as the Fernbank Museum, retirement homes, piano competitions and other recurring recital opportunities. A number of our students have successfully auditioned for various university music programs, completed advanced degrees in music and are professional musicians or teachers.
Prospective students are normally invited to contact us to schedule a free lesson/audition however, our teaching schedules are completely full at this time. You may contact us to get on our waiting list!

Fernbank Museum Venue in Atlanta
On April 9th and again on June 12th, a group of our teenage students had the opportunity to play the piano at the Fernbank Museum of Natural History in Atlanta. Of particular interest were the special exhibitions featuring musical instruments and music found in nature, “Wild Music”, the latter of which is still ongoing. These performance opportunities were possible thanks to one of our parents, Dr. Sofia Sheikh, for planning and organizing this wonderful experience for our young artists. She reported, “Congratulations to all the students for an exceptional performance and being so well mannered at the museum. You made all of us as well as the Fernbank Steinway proud! We have had very appreciative comments from museum management and patrons alike”.
Students Perform at the William Breman Jewish Home
On July 13th, a small group of our students performed for the senior residents at the Breman Home. The residents and staff were delighted to hear the wonderful performances from beginner levels to advanced. The interaction and encouragement went both ways and it was a memorable experience! Thank you Robin Singer and Shauna Horvath for arranging this opportunity!
