What Do You Learn In Piano Lessons?
Our piano teachers teach a variety of styles from classical to pop music. Whether you want to learn Bach or Alicia Keys, our teachers are happy to help you become the pianist you want to be. Your teacher will show you the fundamentals of sight reading, technique and theory, incorporating your favorite songs into your lessons. They’ll share practice tips and will enjoy sharing their love of piano with you. (for ages 5 through adult)
To start off, you will need either a piano or a full size electronic keyboard with key dynamics. All of our instruments are teacher-approved and our expert staff are happy to guide you so your learning experience will be a success.
What Do I Need To Start?
What Happens At The First Lesson?
That is a great question! Our piano teachers make it a priority to get to know you on a personal level and to become familiar with your personal learning style and musical goals. Your teacher will ask about your favorite type of music and help you set goals to achieve whatever musical aspirations you (or your child) have. We do not treat every piano student the same in terms of what and how we teach. A 7-year old having their first lesson will have very different needs than a 57-year old returning to piano after having had lessons as a child. The main reason to choose Rick’s Music World as your lesson provider is that we are sensitive to the fact that every piano student is an individual.
Are Your Instructors Qualified?
Our teachers have received their education from prestigious institutions such as Berklee College of Music, Northeastern University, Johnson & Wales University, New England Conservatory, UMass -Dartmouth, UMass-Amherst, Boston Conservatory and Middlesex College. Most are professional working musicians and have 15-25 years of professional performance and teaching experience. In addition to their teaching credentials, our teachers have warm personalities, are extremely friendly and strive to get to know each student and their parent on a personal level.

Many music studios are understaffed by the teacher/owner or an answering machine. We have three dedicated Lesson Coordinators who work together to assist our students and their families.
Musical Ladder System®
Similar to karate belts, our students get rewarded and recognized as they achieve their goals. As they climb the musical ladder, passing challenge tests given by their teachers, they earn really cool wristbands, certificates and at some levels, even trophies. Better yet, there is no additional cost for these awards. Even the trophies are Free!
