Welcome to the Joy in Music Piano Studio  

where music making is for everyone,

not only for specialists!  

In the Joy in Music Piano Studio,  you  gain confidence 

as you learn skills and  discover joy at the piano

through weekly lessons.

COVID-19 has required flexibility and creativity to continue the learning process.    It is still possible to learn to play the piano! With an internet connection and a desire to learn, you can start your journey.

A vibrant international online music teacher community has provided the support and know-how as we've made the move to online piano lessons.

FALL 2020-WINTER 2021 LESSONS ARE TAUGHT ONLINE via ZOOM.  Limited in person lessons in a distanced studio may become available. Contact Alice at alicejpeterson@yahoo.com or text (207)210-4214 for more information.

My sons have been taking lessons with Alice for many years. We are extremely pleased with their progress. She has an excellent way of keeping them motivated and making practice fun. Every lesson is tailored to their needs and how they learn best. She amazes me in how she knows just how to challenge, but in a way that does not frustrate them. Their school music teacher is always impressed with our boys level of music theory knowledge. Alice is also involved in piano teacher associations and organizations. She is always learning new ways to teach and inspire piano and music learners of all ages. We highly recommend!     ----Leigh Ann, mom of Nate and Noah

Alice calls her Studio "Joy in Music" for a reason. She is a teacher gifted with the ability to share the joy in the sounds and efforts of making music even for someone starting the piano (at 60+ years) and starting from the very beginning ... which is a very good place to start!  ----Rose, adult student

Alice taught our daughter for 12 years, from kindergarten through high school. She taught her to seek Joy in Music, to persevere and take on new challenges, and to be willing to share the gift of music with others even if still "in progress, not perfected". She worked through a variety of themes and units over the years, including female composers, student compositions, global music, and much more. Our daughter loved taking lessons with Alice and has grown into a wonderful piano player with a strong foundation in the fundamentals. Most importantly, she loves playing the piano and making music with and for others. Alice is such a special and talented music teacher - she is creative, caring, dedicated - we recommend her highly!   ----Kelly, Mom of Julia

"I am so grateful to Alice for her teaching which has enabled me to progress in my piano playing. She has been so sensitive where I am at and what my aspirations are in genres of music. She has even helped me get a few of my own compositions on paper.  I am really thanking God for her!"  Greg, adult student

"... the boy of few words says, "Thank you."  We were very proud of him also. Thanks for take an out of class interest in him and for all you do to help him pursue his interests.  We very much appreciate the attitude with which you approach teaching and helping him expand into less traditional areas."  Parent of Sam, teenager
