academic year Piano Program
Students of the Blakemore School of Music Academic Year Piano Program are enrolled in weekly private lessons, monthly musicianship classes, and are eligible to perform in all community performances. For more information about our Piano Program, see below.
Weekly Private Lessons
We offer 30, 45, and 60 Minute lessons based on the age and/or level of the student. During lessons, students receive private one-on-one instruction covering topics such as repertoire, musicality, artistry, technique, and music theory. Lessons are offered in our studio, in student homes*, or online.
Community performances & Recitals
We offer a number of community performances throughout the year at various venues such as retirements homes, libraries, and hospitals as well as formal recitals held at the end of each semester. These performances are a wonderful opportunity for students to showcase what they are learning. All of our students are encouraged to participate in these events.
Monthly Musicianship Classes
Each student of the Blakemore School of Music is invited to attend the monthly musicianship classes. During these classes, we will be covering musical terms, rhythm games and exercises, and will be learning about a famous composer. These classes are great opportunities for students make friends while learning about musical topics we don't usually have time to cover in lessons.
Assessment & Festival Opportunities
BSM offers several outside opportunities for students who are interested in pursing assessment, participating in music festivals & competitions, and summer music camps. Affiliations include the Music Teachers National Association (MTNA), Florida State Music Teacher's Association (FSMTA), Central Florida Music Teachers Association (CFMTA), and Royal Conservatory of Music Development Program.
Individual Lessons/Lesson Packages
Students can register for individual lessons or packages of four lessons. This is a good option for students who are new to music and are trying out piano lessons or for those who have piano experience and want to review or reach their next milestone.

Video exchange lessons
Students and teacher exchange unlimited video/written messages per month and receive detailed feedback and instruction to help them reach their goals. This option is perfect for adult students with busy work and travel schedules or students of any age whose internet connection doesn't support live lessons or who live in a different part of the world with an inconvenient time difference.
