addition to the traditional approach of piano lessons,
D'Net also incorporates "off the bench"
activities to help students internalize musical skills
needed to achieve success. This helps lessons from
becoming stagnant, and keeps student interest and
lessons are held periodically throughout the year,
and students are given the valuable opportunity of
interacting with other piano students. In group
lessons, music skills are reinforced, and students
also gain important performance-building skills.
Games, listening, and other fun activities
dominate the group lessons. In fact, at first

than a lesson!
