Piano Lessons in Elizabeth, NJ | PY Rock

Learn to Play the Piano

PY Rock Elizabeth piano lesson program is specially designed to take complete beginners to an intermediate level faster than any other piano lesson method. Our piano lessons are suitable for kids, teens, and adults. Students can expect to have weekly private piano lessons, as well as 90-minute band rehearsals (audition required).

General Questions

The characteristics of our piano lessons are the following:

  • Students apply music theory in songs that they like. This helps them learn faster.
  • Piano instructors create different versions of songs in order to match the students' pace. This allows the students to be able to play songs, no matter the difficulty of the original song.
  • Our well-structured piano lessons help the students master sigh reading in a dynamic and fun way.

The best time to start piano lessons will be different for every child, but most will be ready between the ages of five to eight years old. When asking if your child is ready for piano lessons, these are some factors to consider:

  • Size of hand: Before beginning piano lessons, we need to make sure your child’s hands have grown enough to be comfortable using a keyboard.
  • Finger independence: Is your child able to move each finger independently without moving the others? When taking piano lessons, the piano instructor will require the students to stretch single fingers to reach certain keys.
  • Desire to learn: If the motivation to take piano lessons comes from your child, it will help him/her overcome all difficulties that might come up when working with the piano instructor.

The students come to our piano lessons once a week for a 30-minute private session. We are open during the following days:

  • Mondays to Fridays, from 3:00 pm to 9:00 pm.
  • Saturdays from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm.
  • We host shows with 18 bands every three months.
  • Sundays: Exact availabilities vary by school location. Please ask your local PY Rock location for details.

Piano instructor working with student



Our piano instructors reported that one of the primary challenges students have when taking piano lessons is sight reading. Most of the time, this is because they can not focus enough on the process of thinking ahead, listening to the music in their head, and feeling it in their fingers at the same time. Through our well-structured piano lessons (and the help of our piano instructors), our students master sight reading in a dynamic and fun way.

They also get to audition to be part of one of our rock bands and perform in live concerts!

Our highly trained piano instructors explain that the best way to describe an advanced player is, control. For that reason, PY Rock Elizabeth advanced piano lessons focus on taking control over tension and relaxation, control over sound, control of timing, control of fingers independence, and control of the feeling when playing the piano. Advance players work deeper into theory and live performance.

Teens are sound creators; they love the idea of composing and exploring the combination of sounds on the piano. PY Rock Elizabeth highly trained instructors approach the piano lessons for teens in a way they can creatively explore the keyboard. Combining notes and chords across the keyboard is one of the topics students cover on our piano lessons designed for teens. They also take the stage and play at local music venues in our performance program.

PY Rock Elizabeth has a special approach to piano lessons for adults. We understand adults have particular needs as learners which are different from kids and teens. Adults want to have a good understanding of the steps before doing it, for that reason our instructors use techniques and strategies to help with their learning needs. Piano instructors help the student have a clear picture of what they are going to be doing on the piano in terms of sound and then work on creating sounds. Piano instructors also focus on understanding patterns and harmonies, working on scales, and tons of chord practice so adults student can get a sense of the fundamental layout of the keyboard. Most of our adults students are part of our performance programs and play live shows!
