THEPIANOANDME is about creating that personal space at our instrument, feeling free in our play, because the piano bends the mood of the day and makes us travel...
We are a Minnesota local-based family business playing in a cozy, relaxed family friendly home-studio, located in Plymouth, MN.

This is where the magic is happening...
Enjoy a wonderful soft feel and a great accoustic sound with a European-imported 2010 Upright KAWAI K-3 with exculsive mechanics rarely found here in the US!
Tuned 2-3 times a year for a magical sound throughout the year.
Pianos & keyboard are thouroughly disinfected between each session and masks are required in the studio for covid protection.
This is where the virtual teaching is happening from our end!
We use a weighted-keys electrical piano Yamaha P-80 with MIDI visual piano interface for a unique interactive virtual lesson experience on your end:
- Interactive on-screen colorful animation of keys as your teacher is demonstrating,
know what keys were just played,
- top view Logitech camera so you can see your teacher's hands from above on the keyboard, great for visual demonstration
- notes and chords names appearing in real time as your teacher is playing, so young appretices have absolutely no doubt what notes were played,
- front view camera embedded in Surface Pro so you see your teacher's face as they speak
- Yeti microphone for optimal sound
All at the same time.
This is what you'll see
Enjoy peace and clarity from the comfort of your home with all the real-life benefits:
