Your Instructor, Mysti Dye

Educating. Guiding. Inspiring.

I have been a professional Piano Instructor in the Lakeland area for 12 years. My studio is highly sought after, and I believe it’s because I have an insatiable love for teaching. I take great pride in helping my students become pianists; but also inspiring their passion for music as well. 

With over 25 years of teaching experience, I’ve had the privilege of working with students of all levels and skills - from beginners to advanced. I specialize in beginning and elementary levels, as it is important to teach correct technique from the very first lesson. Basic technical aspects of piano playing are established from the first few lessons; these include posture, hand and finger positions and movement around the keyboard. I have dedicated a lot of time in studying technique and am committed to instilling technique into each student in order to avoid unnecessary injury to the hands in the future.

I adapt my teaching to accommodate individual learning modalities and abilities; and I cater to each student's strengths. I have extensive experience teaching children with learning differences such as ADHD, ASD, Anxiety disorders, and students who are intellectually delayed or disabled. No matter who I’m teaching, I get excited seeing my students grow and develop as they discover what they can achieve.

Solo/Individual Lessons

Lessons That Go Beyond the Basics

I meet students where they are in their experience. Whether a beginner or an advanced pianist, I bring a wealth of experience to the lesson and enable students to gain a solid understanding in a relaxed and enjoyable setting. I helped to build more than solid pianists. I help students build confidence and self-esteem as well as teaching them how to overcome, adapt, and to problem solve.

Lesson plans are developed around each individual student. Using on and off the bench instruction, students will learn proper technique, how to read music, build a strong sense of rhythm and learn how to count properly. They will be taught music theory, sight reading, aural training, improvisation, how to read lead sheets and the basics of composition.

* Students must have an acoustic piano that is in good condition and regularly tuned, or an 88 Key WEIGHTED key digital piano. 

Piano for Preschoolers

WunderKeys Program

These one-on-one lessons are for children ages 3-5, who are not quite ready for traditional piano teaching methods. 

Using a variety of activities, I help little ones build the necessary skills needed for learning to play an instrument.

Preschool piano requires strong support from the parents in order to be successful. Parents must be committed to sitting with and helping their student practice. 

The studio does not schedule Preschool Piano after 3:30 p.m.

* at this level a 61 key keyboard is an acceptable instrument for the studen to practice on.

Group Piano Lessons

Stay Motivated With Peers

I specialize in Group Piano Lessons for beginning students and know how to create strong performers with the right balance of personalized attention, patience, practical training, positive encouragement and FUN! I make learning piano enjoyable through a variety of engaging and outside-the-box activities; doing it in a relaxed atmosphere that builds a strong sense of community among the students.

Group lessons progress at the same rate as an Individual lesson. When in a group setting, students are more motivated to practice because they don't want to let their group down.

Group students will learn proper technique, how to read music, build a strong sense of rhythm and learn how to count properly. They will be taught music theory, sight reading, aural training, improvisation, how to read lead sheets and the basics of composition. 

* Students must have an acoustic piano that is in good condition and regularly tuned, or an 88 Key WEIGHTED key digital piano.
