You get much more than piano lessons...
At Piano with Barry, we believe music education is much more than just piano lessons. It is also about belonging to a musical community and discovering a deeper purpose within music.
That’s why we’ve extended our core programs to include collaboration as a key feature of all of our courses, so you get many opportunities to work together with other students and musicians, if you want. It’s why we offer piano parties, teach duets, write songs, accompany dance, and provide opportunities to make musical friends.
Our goal is to offer you a journey of musical fulfilment that can last a lifetime - and you are invited.

"I highly recommend Barry as a piano teacher!"

"Our son has been learning piano with Barry for over a year. The lessons are well planned and follow a clear structure progressing gradually from easier to more challenging pieces. Each week there is a different piece to practice. Barry is a calm and fun teacher. He’s also great at giving feedback.
Lessons have been easy to arrange, our son goes by himself after school. We have even arranged occasional online lessons which have also gone smoothly. Our son enjoys the lessons and enjoys playing piano, and we think Barry’s approach is a big reason for this. We’re very happy to recommend Barry’s lessons."
