Cicada Music School


Cicada Music School is located in the Greenwood neighborhood of Seattle. We have suspended in-person lessons for the time being, but are offering online Zoom lessons to both local and non-local students. 

Our mission is to cultivate lifelong musicians who are able to use music as a tool for creativity and expression. Our goal is not to create concert pianists, but to help students build a solid and comprehensive foundation in music through the use of the piano, so that they can pursue any musical path with confidence. Every student will receive personalized instruction based around their own interests, which may include music theory, note-reading, ear training, improvisation, and composition/songwriting. If you’re not totally sure what to look for in a piano teacher, I recommend watching this video to start! 

Cicada Music School strives to provide an inclusive learning environment for all students, including IBPOC and LGBTQIA+ students. We work closely with caregivers of students with developmental disabilities to accommodate to their learning styles and help them feel successful. Discounted lessons are available (limited) to children in foster care, and low income families.
