Piano Lessons

Piano lessons are for children as young as 5 yrs old through adults as old as 99. You are never too old to learn to play. Our professional teachers take students from where they are either as a complete beginner or a student who has already studied the piano for years. All ability levels are welcome from beginners through advanced.


How Lessons Work

When a student starts lessons at Vancouver Music Academy the first step is to assess any skills the student already has and find out what goals they have, what types of songs they want to learn and make a plan to accomplish those goals. We start students on our Music Scales of Achievement program on their first day, where they will pass through series of levels and are recognized and rewarded each time they pass a level (usually 4-8 months). After each lesson, students receive an email from the teacher so that the student knows exactly what to practice at home. This takes out the guess work and makes practicing between lessons much easier and more productive.

Never Miss a Lesson!

If a student is ever unable to attend a lesson for any reason they can choose between taking an online lesson via Google Meet for the day (or for multiple days) or requesting a recorded lesson to take at the students convenience.  


Additional Opportunities to Develop as a Musician

After a period of time and as space allows students can be invited to join one of our Rockbands or string ensemble groups. These groups can make it possible for students to make friends with other musicians their age and have performance opportunities as they learn to play with other musicians. If you are interested in this opportunity be sure to ask to be put on a waitlist. Other opportunities to help students develop into a competent musician include:

  • Regular recitals

  • ​Songwriting

  • ​Recording workshops and more

Lesson Times

We offer lessons 7 days a week. Weekday lessons start as early as noon until as late as 8 pm. Weekend lessons start at 9 am until 4 pm on Saturdays and 9 am until 3 pm on Sundays.

Piano Practice

Piano is an incredible versatile instrument and is a great foundation that transfers to other instruments.

''My 9 year old son has been taking private piano lessons for 6 months now and I am in awe of his piano skills. He can read sheet music and play full songs. He enjoys going to his lesson thanks to Tyler’s kindness, encouragement and patience. The front desk is always helpful and I appreciate the text reminders for our lesson days! :) VMA is so amazing that we had to sign up my 5 year old son up as well! We highly recommend Vancouver Music Academy!

I have always wanted to learn the piano and sadly never got the chance was I was little. Being an adult with a full-time job I was nervous about the teachers being strict about practice and impatient with me. After seeing the good reviews at this school and booking a lesson, I can say that these reviews don't lie. The staff here is so kind and patient. My piano teacher Tyler has been amazing with being kind and understanding when I have busy weeks where I could not practice and always encouraging when I'm struggling to learn a song. The school has a system that rewards you for hitting certain levels which does give you a good feel of accomplishment. Every week I'm always surprised at how much I have learned in a short amount of time and am super happy that I'm achieving my dream of playing the piano. If you are an adult wanting to learn an instrument. I wholeheartedly recommend this school!

Our 8 year old comes home glowing after his piano lessons. Robert takes the time to connect, discovers what he's passionate about and creates perfectly curated songs that make him excited. His skill level has improved so much over the past 6 months. In the words of our son, Robert is the best teacher in the world! VMA is easy to work with, flexible, welcoming, encouraging and celebrates milestones with our kiddo. It takes a village and VMA is definitely part of that community, helping him flourish and reach his dreams.
