Piano Lessons

The highly successful Piano Area at Gifted Music School features artist-level faculty delivering a highly strucutered curriculum.  Co-headed by Dr. Whitney Pizza and Gifted Music School founder Dr. Vera Oussetskaia-Watanabe, the dedicated faculty nurtures and fosters interest and talent at all skill levels and goals.  
Gifted Music School piano students have gone on to study at the world's leading conservatories including the Juilliard School, New England Conservatory, and Peabody Conservatory. Many have won the opportunity to perform with the Utah Symphony through their Salute to Youth concerts.
Piano skills are considered the essential cornerstone for any musician. The Piano Area offers affordable and high-quality supplementary piano lessons to instrumentalists and vocalists who need to strengthen their piano skills.
