Community Piano Lab is a piano-teaching laboratory sponsored by the BYU-Idaho piano area. The lab provides opportunities for piano pedagogy students to teach beginning and intermediate children in a supervised setting.

Currently, the Community Piano Lab does not offer instruction for beginning piano to adults.

Beginning Piano Students (7–11 years of age)

  • Beginning level is defined as no or minimal musical training.
  • The program includes approximately 10 individual lessons which will be arranged according to student and teacher availability and held in the Snow building. Please see the Community Piano Lab Policy for exact calendar dates.
  • Students must be available a few times during the semester for Community Piano Lab Theory Classes occurring on every other Tuesday from 4:30-5:30 pm. This theory class is in addition to the private lessons and is a wonderful opportunity for children to learn musical skills in a group that are unique to that setting. 
  • Fee is $75. Materials are not included (about $25). Fee will be collected when you are notified of admission.
  • This is a lab experience for students enrolled in the piano pedagogy classes at BYU-Idaho which gives them practice and experience in teaching piano while providing good piano instruction to children of the community for a very small fee.
