Study at Esom School of Music

Students who learn piano in a group setting have the opportunity to build friendships and become “piano buddies,” which allows them to practice together, perform duets, and even participate in healthy competition with one another. Students who study piano individually do not have this option.
Private music lessons ensure that the student receives the instructor’s undivided attention for the whole duration of the class session. It is possible to study techniques and concepts in more depth because of the particular attention you receive.
A short course is a mini version of our normal course in a private program that lasts for a shorter period of time (normally 6 weeks). In our short courses, a student gets 2 lessons a week and practice throughout the week.
Students that succeed in the piano program at the esom are passionate about finding their unique artistic voices. They like musical partnerships that stimulate creativity and are supportive of their peers. They admire the work of today’s leading pianists and aim to stand beside them at the top of the field.
