About Us

The goal of Belmont Piano Academy is to provide a well-rounded and engaging music education that will develop a lifelong love of music in young piano students. Our desire is to connect with each student on a personal level, helping to nurture their natural creativity. Whether it is by learning the Starwars theme song, a Bach prelude, Rachmaninoff etude, or a Coldplay ballade, it is our mission to help these young musicians thrive at the piano.


Lesson Plans

Lessons are offered to children ages 5 to 18, from new beginners who have never tried the instrument, to those with several years of advanced piano experience. Several of our private students are first place prizewinners in the American Guild of Music.

Please come take advantage of a free lesson! Regardless of whether your child has any prior experience with music lessons, we will customize a lesson plan based on their particular goals for piano.

What Our Clients Say

Monica L. Facebook

"Michal is an excellent teacher! We were at the point where our daughter was about to quit learning how to play the piano; however, recently she started taking lessons with Michal and our house is filled now with beautiful piano songs every day! We would like to congratulate Michal on the effectiveness of her teaching style! We also encourage parents looking for a great piano teacher to come to Belmont Piano Academy!"

Lynne B. Facebook

"My 8 year old son has been taking lessons with "Ms. Michal" for nearly 8 months and his lesson remains a highlight of his week. Michal is a great teacher who is effective at both motivating him and challenging him to progress -- which he has. As a parent, I love her responsiveness, and her modern approach to piano, which incorporates apps and remote practice monitoring to supplement the in person teach. I also love how she incorporates music history into her curriculum, which really has increased my son's appreciation of different composers and the pieces he's playing. She's GREAT and I could not recommend her more if you are looking for a piano teacher!"

Emily B. Facebook

"Michal is a fantastic piano teacher! She encourages and challenges my daughter with pieces that she carefully selects for her. She puts a great deal of planning into each lesson and the knowledge and skills gained by my daughter in less than one year of lessons is incredible!"
