Learn to Play Piano at SIUE 

Our fantastic piano instructor Mr. Andrew Sawchak has decided to retire from SIUE and take a break from teaching.

He is going to take some well-deserved time to enjoy retirement.

We are in the process to identify a new piano instructor.

Thanks for your understanding.

Have you been dreaming of playing the piano for years? Are you sorry you gave up those piano lessons years ago?
