COVID-19 Update

CKS is committed to keeping our students and staff safe and healthy. Keyboards are sanitized after each lesson, hand sanitizer is available, and HEPA Air Cleaners are on both floors of the studio. Any students taking in person lessons are required to wear masks until further notice. Our waiting areas are temporarily closed to minimize the number of people in the studio. Online lessons are available for students with health issues who need more isolation at this time.

What to Expect

At Contemporary Keyboard Studios, we are dedicated to providing a solid foundation for anyone who loves music and would like to achieve excellence in musicianship.
