Welcome to Hegarty Piano Studio

Hegarty Piano Studio offers individual private piano lessons for all ages and all levels of piano students. Each lesson is customized to meet the individual student's unique wants & needs. Lessons have been taught in Solano County since 1987 ... then we moved to the foothills of California in 2014 and now offer lessons to new students in their own homes around El Dorado County, covering Pollock Pines, Camino, Placerville, Coloma, Diamond Springs, El Dorado, Somerset, Cameron Park, Shingle Springs, El Dorado Hills, and other small towns in the surrounding area. Hegarty Piano Studio is also a registered vendor for Core Placer Charter School, Horizon Charter School, Visions in Education, and American River Charter School.

Here at Hegarty Piano Studio, piano students can pursue a complete and well-rounded music education that includes beautiful technique, artistic expression, fluent sight-reading, and amazing performance skills. All piano Lesson Plans follow the curriculum guidelines established by the California Music Teachers Association (CMTA) “Certificate of Merit” Program, as well as the Royal Conservatory of Music Program and allow students to study any genre of music they enjoy, at their own pace, while also challenging each student to reach their full potential.

Hegarty Piano Studio provides many optional performance opportunities throughout the year. We also coordinate Group Classes several times a year and we record an annual Student Christmas CD each year.

An optional “Student Gallery” is provided on this website, where each student has their own webpage with links to the their audio and video performance recordings. Using a private password, family and friends can watch and listen to your kid’s music as they progress each year.

There’s so much that you can do at Hegarty Piano Studio … I can’t fully explain it all in a short introduction paragraph … so please feel free to browse the website, read about our many events, listen to some of Miss Nancy’s performances, and check out the “Sample Students”.  And if you are interested in joining us, please contact Miss Nancy for availability and a no charge Interview/Audition.
