Doris Merritt Piano Studio

Piano Instruction

Music keeps your mind challenged, and can improve your mental abilities and physical well being as well as bring you years of pleasure and a sense of accomplishment. It’s a great way to unwind after a stressful day. The love and joy of music truly is a wonderful gift, so respect it, use it and reap the benefits. Doris teaches piano to adult students in her Englewood (Denver Area) studio. Topics include:

  • Read Music and Understand Chords
  • Speed Read and Improvise
  • Use Fake (Lead) Sheets
  • Play By Ear and Play in Rhythm
  • Learn to Relax and Enjoy Playing the Piano

Many piano students come into her studio to begin lessons reading notes one at a time and have no concept of establishing a beat. Doris teaches rhythm on two pianos in her studio. The student feels her beat and learns how to establish their own. It’s a fun way to learn how to play in rhythm and make someone’s toes tap.

The lesson fee is $50 for a 45 minute lesson. To speak with Doris and ask any pertinent questions, call her at 303-761-6242. She will be glad to talk with you and answer any questions you might have.
