Designed to promote the development of future pianists through in-person and online lessons, Operation Piano Academy students will have the possibility of individual lessons from their own home or Corps. This program is available for adults and youths of 8 years and up.
Applicants can choose the lesson style that works best for them. If you have the ability to take lessons in-person and already have an instructor, fill out the application below and select "in-person." If you would like to take lessons online with one of our highly qualified faculty instructors choose, "online."
Lessons will be based on the M.A.P. curriculum and geared toward Sunday morning preparation. Lessons will be offered in increments of 30-, 45-, or 60-minute sessions, to be determined by experience level.
Supplemental funding will be provided by divisional and/or territorial resources to all students. To receive more information and to apply, please fill out the form below.
