Dear Parents! Give your children such afternoon activity that affects their personality, their human being. Not only the music lessons at school but learning to play a musical instrument can be the best part of their musical education. Playing the piano makes pleasure, helps to coordinate motions, developes the memory, helps in general learning and forms thinking by creative tasks.
Piano education can be started at the age of six or any time later. It is very important to keep the right posture at the piano so the support will be distributed equally between the bottom and the legs, thus the arms can move freely. Keeping the arms horizontallycshouldn't depend on the height of the child so it is useful ro sit on an adjustable piano bench. A small stool is helpful if the legs don't touch the floor, or a pedal adapter to handle the pedals. Siblings, classmates, friends who love playing the piano together have enough space on the double piano bench which is adjustable at both ends. They can easily learn and perform duet pieces for four hands.
Anyone can cope with simple songs and easy two-hand pieces, talented pupils can reach of learning even complex opuses. Whatever the knowledge level is, it gives an experience for life playing the piano to one another, even on stage. For beginners, packages containing 2*25 minutes a week for younger children or 1*40 minutes a week for older children are recommended, perhaps 2*40 minutes for faster development. Intermediate and advanced students can take 1*40, 2*40 or 1*55 minutes. Who are on a high level and can cope with pieces by self, can attend single lessons occasionally (like a masterclass) to review a piece and get advices for the work at home. Our material also contains skill-developing excercises as technical, sightreading, hearing-training and creative tasks. Talented students can prepare for conservatory, college or even university with our help.
There are no compuslory exams at our school, application and preparation for international exams is available instead on demand. Our material can cover requirements of the publicly funded basic art education institutions and music high schools as well as the international exams or can be differ on demand. All students present their knowledge on piano recitals once a semester. A public concert on a Steinway grand piano gives a great experience. Participants are rewarded with a diploma.

"I have been learning with Mr. Balázs Juhász for 2 years and I think I have made a lot of progress and have gotten a lot better. Mr. Juhász teaches me about all things like music history, theory, and technique. What I love most about him is that he is very patient with me and when I have trouble with something he works with me step by step by explaining and demonstrating until I understand it and can do it alone. I have completed grade 5 and grade 6 ABRSM exams, both with distinction. This is something I am really proud of. I also like how we have recitals to perform in front of other people. These recitals are good because they make me feel more confident when performing. I really like Mr. Balázs Juházs, he is a great teacher."
"It was a pleasure to study with Balázs. With his passion he taught me not only how to play piano but also how to treat music as well as how to enjoy it. I've just passed with Merit ABRSM Grade 3 with his help."
"I like music because it is good to listen and play. My favourite instrument is piano because it has a beautiful sound and I have to be skillful. I like mirror two-hands and scales. It is good to learn with Balázs while he explains well and I can play on a Steinway / Essex piano and the location is beautiful. I have been learning with him and I already played on two concerts. My favourite piece is Toccata and Fugue in d minor by Bach, but I can't play it yet…"
"When it came up that I'd like to play the piano, I had to face a big obstruction: there were no places in the music school or I was kept too old when I was 12. We decided therefore to search for a private teacher thus we reached Balázs.
Two friends of mine in the school also started to play the piano, the same time. One afternoon we played to each other. As I listened to them I thought they played serious pieces. I also realized that they can't play fine and steady while they didn't get strong basics however I did!
I like to learn with Balázs, the lessons are cheerful and he tells stories about composers and the pieces, too. I learn music theory as well, which is very useful while playing."
"It’s the second year I’m attending classes at Balázs. I really love the varied lessons and the humorous conversations during the breaks. He is always patient, he helps me in learning difficult pieces – achieving great dreams, he always takes attention for the artistic performance also. We approach each task positively, I get encouragement for the bigger steps. I like the Essex piano on which I can learn, I’m glad to receive quality in the respect of the instrument, too."
