Classical European Piano Lessons with Margaret Anna Walker

Learn to play classical piano in the European way.

Playing the piano is a wonderful skill that can bring you lifelong pleasure and rewards. And learning the traditional European way will provide a solid foundation to help you achieve your musical goals.

Your piano lessons will be personally conducted by Anna. Anna was born in Poland and learned to play the piano under the tutelage of experienced Russian teachers.

Anna’s favourite music is from the Romantic period but she is equally at ease with students who enjoy or wish to learn Baroque, Classical or Impressionistic period pieces.
Anna will tailor your lessons to suit your goals and aspirations.

Beginners and students who want to learn to play from scratch and build a sound foundation are especially encouraged.

Price: Book three lessons and get the fourth free (new students only). Gift Certificates available.
