About this pro

With over 600 students and 29 teachers, Creative Keys Music School is Pinellas County’s largest music academy.  We have been giving lessons in Dunedin since 2002 and the business is family owned and operated.  Our experienced, friendly instructors love teaching students of all ages and levels and helping them discover the world of music.  Private lessons are available in person as well as online. Instrument choices include Piano, Guitar, Voice, Violin, Viola, Drums, Percussion, Bass, Ukulele, Flute, Clarinet, Saxophone, Trumpet, Trombone, and more!

Creative Keys students LOVE performing up to 4 times per year in recitals and performance parties - it's so much fun and helps students with goal setting while enjoying increased confidence!  

Our teachers hold various credentials, including Bachelor or Master degrees, professional teaching certificates, memberships in the National Guild of Piano Teachers, Music Teachers National Association, and extensive performance experience.  Most importantly, they are patient and friendly and strive to get to know you and your unique goals on your instrument. 

To learn more and view teacher profiles, please visit www.CreativeKeysMusicSchool.com or www.facebook.com/creativekeysinc.  We'd also love to meet you and give you a tour of our facility (hours Mon-Fri 1-8pm, Sat 9:30-3:00, and Sun 1-5) so feel free to stop in at 1602 Achieva Way, Dunedin (next to Frank's Pizza)!  

Seeing a student light up with excitement when they've learned something new or mastered a piece is so amazing! It's also wonderful to listen to students perform in our recitals, which are held at least 4 times per year. Watching students make progress each time they perform, and witnessing the pride they feel, is amazing!

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

We have had great success recently with virtual recitals as this has given students a way to work toward a goal during the pandemic.  Our Virtual showcases have been a lot of fun, with students participating on piano, guitar, voice, violin, viola, and cello.  In December 2021 and May, 2022 we rented the ampitheater at R.E. Olds Park in Oldsmar and had wonderful, safe outdoor recitals which went beautifully!  At all of our events, students had a great time and enjoyed sharing their love of music with family and friends.
