Higgins Piano Studio

Piano Lessons and Composition Camps

 




Welcome to the Higgins Piano Studio Website!

Diane Higgins is an independent piano and composition teacher in Charlotte.   She comes from a very musical family, and several of her family members have made their careers in music!

 
Higgins Piano Studio offers year-round private piano and composition instruction and summer composition camps to children from ages 4-18.  The studio features 2 Yamaha grand pianos, recording equipment, a seating area for small audiences, and an additional waiting room.  For composition camps, the studio includes a computer lab of 5 studio computers with 19" flat-screen monitors, 5 studio Midi keyboards, and 4 additional Yamaha Portable Grand keyboard
 
 
It is my sincere desire that my teaching, the student's dedication and the parent's support will form an effective team.  By working together we can make music one of the most enjoyable experiences the student will encounter.
