I highly recommend 88Keys. My daughter has been attending piano classes there for the past four years and she has learned so much! They offer exceptional group classes and the children learn to play both solo pieces and as part of a group. My daughter has learned amazing hand coordination and her confidence in playing has also improved as the children are encouraged to be creative with their music. Her teacher, Ms. Alondra, takes time to encourage each child and give immediate feedback as they play. My daughter's confidence in playing has been boosted tremendously because of her. As a school, I am also impressed at how fast classes went online during this very challenging time during the pandemic. They have always been implementing safety for the in-person classes and have always had the online option available for the live classes. Thank you to 88Keys!
