Voices of our participants

"A great opportunity that the Vienna Piano School offers is the Summer School. In one-week intensive lessons with all the teachers, I learned so much more about phrasing, tempos, chords, etc., but especially got to practice the important details. And there is theory as well, if desired. This short time off just to play the piano has been more than worth it, and is as nice as a vacation because you take away many new impressions."

In the summer school, I not only made noticeable progress with daily lessons, but also got more motivation to play the piano. I found the lessons with different teachers exciting because everyone brought a new perspective to my pieces. I also found my new piano teacher! In the theory lessons, I was able to deepen my knowledge and was able to better understand the different aspects of my pieces, for example by analyzing chords or recognizing intervals. All in all, the Summer School offers anyone who wants to delve deeper into the piano an opportunity to do just that. There is always something new to learn as the space to become a better piano player is limitless!"

Franziska from Vienna

"After a long break from the piano, my daughter took part in the summer school and received lessons from Marie-Astrid every day.
We thought she wouldn't play the piano anymore, but the summer school with the daily units was exactly the right way for her to get back into it and after the week she rediscovered her passion for the piano.
Now she practices (almost) every day...
Many thanks to Marie-Astrid and the whole team of the Vienna Piano School for their extremely friendly and professional way of bringing the piano closer to every child and adult in the form of individually tailored lessons and with a huge portion of fun.
You can tell that all the teachers are passionate about their job."
