Our Mission

Welcome to our Website! And Welcome to The Piano Workshop!!!

Since our beginning days at The Piano Workshop at Chester, our goal has always been to instill an appreciation and enjoyment of music and the arts. 10 years later, our reputation for excellence has expanded into Bergen County, NJ. When asked what our teaching philosophy is, my best response to this question is not to tell them about the one way that we teach: all of our teachers have different styles and adapt to meet the needs of a particular student. It is more accurate to tell you what we do not do. We won’t sit you or your child down at the piano, and go through a lesson book chapter by chapter, and hope for the best.

We at Piano Workshop are at the forefront of creativity and innovation. Our teachers are invested in your child’s music education and we are always researching and exploring new teaching methodologies and technologies for our studio. We match each student with an instructor that will be the best suited to teach the student the necessary skills and related theory to learn to play and grow musically. This approach will allow you or your children to tap into your individual creative spirit and begin a lifelong journey of exploring and appreciating music.

The teaching faculty at The Piano Workshop at Chester is comprised of artist and teachers who all have unique and specialized musical backgrounds. Teachers at The Piano Workshop are all degree holding educated musicians who are committed to delivering educational excellence to all students via a comprehensive and sequential curriculum centered and focused towards each student’s learning styles, musical goals, interests and aspirations. This not only makes learning highly informative but also super fun!

I am available always via email, or phone to discuss any issues, thoughts, ideas or concerns you may have about your lessons, progress or anything whatsoever, I take an active role in understanding where each student is, their relationship with their teacher, repertoire they are working on etc.
Please feel free to contact me anytime.

Sincerely,
Sonia Kiernan
