Why is it great to be a music student in Northbrook?
Piano Power has been an active presence in Northbrook since 2001. We love our Northbrook students! The only difficulty is driving by Northbrook institution Charlie Beinlich’s without needing an immediate burger fix!
Northbrook piano students can enjoy lots of great theater, dance, and music programming through the Northbrook Park District, including free concerts on Tuesday nights throughout the summer.
Northbrook District 28 schools have been awarded the Best Communities for Music Education award by the National Association of Music Merchants several years in a row!
Our private lessons are appropriate for pianists aged 5 to 105. For students younger than five, we’re happy to discuss alternatives to private lessons. Somewhere around age 5, a combined increase in finger strength, reading ability, and concentration makes a student ready for private lessons.

Your piano teacher will work with you to create a practice plan that works for your student’s schedule. The single most important element of piano practice is regularity. We know our students are busy! But devoting even a modest amount of time each day to piano practice produces much better results than relying on weekly “cram sessions.” Ideally, your student will make piano a regular part of his or her day.

Digital Pianos welcome
We recognize that not all of our students have pianos in their homes. We are happy to conduct lessons on digital pianos as well. Unlike a keyboard, a digital piano has weighted keys that provide the feel and touch of a traditional piano. For many of our families, it’s the perfect solution.

Piano Power recitals
If your student has been receiving drum instruction with Piano Power for three months or more, he or she is invited to participate in our annual spring recital. Held in June and December, the recital is a wonderful, low-key way to celebrate your student’s achievements. Our drummers perform a huge variety of repertoire — from classical to original compositions to Top-40 radio hits.
