Who We Are

Piano Lessons for Kids in Sherman Oaks and Pasadena.

At Piano Play, we don’t do one-size-fits-all education – we introduce children to our proprietary Layered Learning Environment (LLE)® that uniquely combines stories, body language, game-like activities, singing, ear training, movement, and music theory.

Layered Learning Environment (LLE)®

Our mission is to provide holistic, age-specific music education that enriches the lives of our students and their families. Through our unique “Layered Learning Environment” (LLE)®, we aim to make learning music a delightful journey of exploration and growth.

We are dedicated to empowering each student to reach their full potential, instilling in them a deep appreciation for music, and equipping them with the skills and passion to continue their musical journey for a lifetime in:

  • Ear training
  • Music theory
  • Note reading
  • Expressive singing
  • Rhythm understanding
  • Keyboard playing
  • Academic preparation

Our musical courses range from group classes that start at 19 months to private lessons for those aged seven and above. Each group program takes about three semesters to complete, engaging students and their parents in the immersive process of reading, playing by ear, and writing music.

Private instruction for older beginners and adults consists of highly experienced instructors with extensive musical knowledge and a passion for teaching. They’ve been part of our journey since 1987, providing a warm, encouraging, and stimulating environment for learning.

The books are easy to follow, and classroom instruction is structured for the children.
