Few things in life are as rewarding as being able to play the piano. Whether it is a child just starting out, or an adult following a long held dream… the magic of music is a universal language that everyone can learn.


Private Piano Lessons Are Customized

Whether you are youngster or an adult, if you want to learn to play piano, you can!   Our private piano lessons are always customized for each individual.  For students with some physical limitations, Dr. Melvin Arnoff adapts music and modifies his private piano lessons as needed.

Whether you are a beginning, intermediate or advanced piano student, Dr. Arnoff’s private piano lessons, Cleveland’s best, will help you learn and enhance your piano skills.  Tailored to students’ musical preferences, from classical piano to popular, movie themes, musicals or jazz, our lessons inspire our students!  Moreover, if you already “play by ear,”  Dr. Arnoff supports and further strengthens this skill while building the other skills you’ll need to enhance your performance.


The Joy of Piano and the Cleveland Music Scene

Dr. Arnoff’s greatest joy comes from helping youngsters and adults bring out their musical talents and to build music reading skills.  Students learn that good music comes from classical composers as well as popular music, musicals, movie and television themes, folk music and jazz.

In Cleveland, piano lessons have a special place due to the presence of a world-class Cleveland Orchestra and equally prestigious conservatories such as the Cleveland Institute of Music, Oberlin and Baldwin Wallace College as well as the Cleveland International Piano Contest.

Indeed, private piano lessons are a gift that keeps on giving!  Students and adults can find joy in playing alone, or cooperatively with others who play the piano and other instruments.


Benefits of Piano Lessons with Dr. Melvin Arnoff

There are numerous benefits to learning music besides basic enjoyment.  Private piano lessons teach discipline, boost confidence and encourage goal-setting, all while being a creative outlet.

Parents have found our Cleveland piano lessons not only improve their children’s memorization and motor skills, but help build their child’s self-confidence through goal setting and discipline. This self-confidence not only helps children succeed in music, but has translated into improved performance in school, sports and social situations.

Piano lessons are most gratifying for both children and adults when a musical milestone is reached; whether that is learning a new song, memorizing text, finally nailing that trill, or performing in front of others.  Many young adults will pick up an instrument for the first time since high school or college to regain their skills, while some simply want to learn something brand new.

Older adults find that our Cleveland piano lessons are a great way to stay mentally active.  Just like learning fingerings on a guitar, practicing scale patterns on a piano exercises the logical side of the brain. Studies have proven the therapeutic benefits of music keep the mind sharp while also preventing the onset of age-related health problems such as Alzheimer’s disease.  Regardless of age, private piano lessons in Cleveland are a fun and exciting way to learn something new or continue something old.
