general information

Ip Piano School was established with the mission of extending the opportunities of music study to all ages. Our program is designed to provide students with stimulation, inspiration, and satisfaction to prepare them for a lifetime involvement in music. There are a variety of lessons and classes available to enrich one's musical background.

Moreover, Ip Piano School proudly offers the unique opportunity to participate in an ANNUAL CONCERTO CONCERT held at Boston University's Tsai Performance Center. It allows the students to experience playing with a full orchestra. This unique experience generates motivation, self-confidence, and establishes self-esteem.
