40 Years of Experience and Thousands of Students
Since 1977 piano lessons have been offered in our family’s music stores. Over the past four decades we have been able to fine-tune the art of teaching piano. Though pianos were the first instruments that we taught, we were soon able to offer lessons for a variety of instruments.
A Comfortable Waiting Room
We are a place where music lives. Musicians can enjoy a cup of coffee or tea, talk to others about music, share ideas, and seek inspiration while perfecting their technique. In our waiting room, parents of our students can relax on our plush sofas, enjoy complimentary high-speed Wi-Fi internet, coffee and refreshment bar, cable television, a clean restroom, and a selection of sheet music, books, and magazines. There is access to the piano galleries for those that would like to try out our instruments. During the cooler months, we will create an outdoor dining terrace and native butterfly garden so that parents and students can relax by interacting with nature.
Coverage area for music lessons: Sarasota, Sarasota County, Osprey, Laurel Nokomis, Venice, North Port, Englewood, Bradenton, Manatee County, and Anna Maria Island
Qualified Teachers - Our teachers are keen on cultivating talent and instilling excellent technique. They go through a rigorous screening and interview process in order to qualify to teach at Bayfront Music. Our instructors use nationally approved teaching methods.
The teachers use methods developed by trusted publishers such as Alfred, Hal Leonard, Nancy & Randall Faber, Bastien, John Thompson, Edna-Mae Burnam, Schirmer, Mel Bay and others. Our teachers don’t just wing it; they are well prepared to provide a customized experience for the students.
Friendly, knowledgeable coordinators - Coordinator plays a vital role at the front desk. A Bayfront Music coordinator learns about the teaching methods and personality traits of the teachers so that students and teachers are well matched. The coordinator schedules the initial lesson, takes care of billing, and oversees studio activities and procedures.
"The coordinator we had was extremely helpful and made the whole process very pleasant. She took the time to make sure my son was going with the right teacher." ~ Gabby C.
