As Fishers Indiana piano teachers, teaching and performing piano are Sally and Rachel’s passions. Many Eppert Piano Studio students have won or placed at various local piano contests and won music scholarship over the years. Additionally, we have the notoriety of the most studio participants in the National Piano Guild Auditions that occurs each June! Several of our students have gone on to major in music at Indiana University, Eastman School of Music and University of Indianapolis.

Our premier music program involves the whole family in the joy of their children’s musical learning by inviting a parent to come into class the last 10 minutes for sharing time and help with the daily practice at home.

Additionally, Eppert Piano Studio has two annual studio recitals with all students participating. There are other performance opportunities as each student progresses. Learn more about our recitals.

The presenters have included Catherine Rollin, Robert Vandall, Dr. Paul Wirth, Melody Bober, Kevin Olson, Chris Goldson and Philip Keveren, along with others.
