Elements is a fun and innovative piano program that teaches kids AND adults how to play the piano or keyboard.

While most keyboard methods are based on outdated 17th-19th century European fundamentals, the Elements approach is easy, fun, exciting, and rewarding! Not only do our classes enable beginners the capacity to play their favorite songs on their VERY FIRST lesson, but our students look forward to each class, time and time again!

We have listed some of the features and basic information about our unique program below. Please select the type of class you are interested in and find out what sets us apart from other methods. It's easy to see why ours is the best piano/keyboard program available!
