The Studio is convenient to your location. The Studio is less than 25 minutes or less from most locations in Reno or Sparks area.

Outstanding Instruction

It can be difficult to find a local piano teacher that offers “award winning” lessons. This Studio offers fun beginning lessons. But for students who want to get more serious, I can offer students the opportunity to compete in Music Development Programs.

Student Focus

Students love playing songs they know! Not only do I teach the “basic facts” of music… I help students find music that they love and include it in their lessons. My students get to select their favorites:

  • Songs from their favorite movies (like Star Wars, Harry Potter, Jurassic Park, etc.)
  • Songs from the radio (Katy Perry, One Direction, Ed Sheeran, Coldplay, and hundreds of others)
  • Songs from their favorite TV shows (Disney shows and movies)
  • Many other genres (church music, jazz, as well as holiday music)

Again, I will stress that most teachers offering local piano lessons do not put this much variety into their standard curriculum, but I do!

Using the Best Technology

I teach students in the traditional skills and methods of piano, however, my Studio uses the best technology apps available to achieve these goals:

  • Modern music workstations for songwriting and practice games
  • Instruction in how to use some of the most popular music apps including Simply Piano, Piano Maestro, and Note Rush and interactive theory with Sproutbeat
  • Recommendations on the best acoustic and digital keyboards to buy

Finally, this is just a small taste of what the Julie Newton Music Studio has to offer. Contact me today for more information or to set-up a no-cost introductory lesson.
