1: Sharon Renkes Piano Studio / Private Piano Lessons

"Music and rhythm find their way into the secret places of the soul." -- Plato

Welcome! The Sharon Renkes Piano Studio has been successfully growing Music Makers in the greater Columbus, Ohio area since 1987. Private piano lessons are offered for beginning through early advanced level students, ages 5 to adult. New students begin their lessons as soon as openings are available in the teaching schedule. Most students begin with 30 minute lessons, increasing to 45 and 60 minute lessons as they progress. Specific teaching material is chosen for each student and individual lesson plans are developed. 

The Studio has returned to in-person lessons with CDC/NIH Covid-19 precautions in place. Masks are to be worn by all unvaccinated students. When variant levels are high, students are encouraged to be masked. Hand sanitizer will be used before/after lessons and keyboard surfaces are wiped with disinfectant between students. The option of virtual lessons using FaceTime / Zoom continues to be available. Sharon is fully vaccinated and boostered.  She wears a mask while teaching unvaccinated students and will wear a mask with all students when variant levels are high. Let's be safe and do all we can to protect ourselves and others. It's the only way this pandemic will end. 

During the Fall, Winter & Spring: (September 1 - May 31) A specific day and time, recurring weekly, is reserved for each student's private lesson.

Summer lessons: (June 1 - August 31) Flexible scheduling will allow for camps, sports, vacations and family activities. 

In-person music instruction takes place in the piano teacher's personal home studio, located in the Clintonville neighborhood of Columbus, Ohio. Free on-street parking is available. The studio's learning atmosphere is calm and positive, with lesson content focused on each student's individual learning styles, needs and goals using digital and acoustic pianos, rhythm instruments, music themed games, solo and ensemble playing, singing and body movement. 

Students are exposed to a variety of repertoire and music styles, theory, ear training, basic music history, beginning composition and improvisation, along with performance opportunities for sharing music with the studio family and in the community. The curriculum is designed to introduce each student to the world of music past and present, develop appreciation for music and artistic skills, learn to play the piano expressively and to read music fluently. 

It is expected that students will have an acoustic piano, tuned and in good working condition, or a digital piano with 88 full-sized fully weighted keys and attached legs or an X-stand, pedal and bench, in their homes for daily practice. Keyboards with less than 88 keys are not acceptable. Practice requirements vary according to the student's age and skill level. (10 - 60 minutes, 5-7 days per week)
