Music Instruction

Private lessons for Piano, Cello and Violin

Our team of sought-after instructors offers lessons for children 4 years old and older and adults of all musical levels.

Our piano students progress light years ahead using our own Silva Piano Method, designed to be fast yet thorough.

We have 2 studio locations in East Cobb:  Blackwell Road and Hawkins Store Road, about 3 miles apart.

Training for the next


In only one year, beginners as young as five years old can learn how to play and read music at a level that is normally achieved in 3-5 years with other methods and adults are able to play their first Bach, Beethoven and Chopin pieces!

Intermediate and advanced students focus on developing technique and repertoire. There are a number of venues in which our students perform such as the Fernbank Museum, retirement homes, piano competitions and other recurring recital opportunities. A number of our students have successfully auditioned for various university music programs, completed advanced degrees in music and are professional musicians or teachers.

Mireille and Francisco Silva have developed one of the most innovative piano programs to date! With the Silva piano method and her enthusiasm for music, her enthusiasm for her students, and the way she enables a student to move along to an advanced level of piano skills quickly, I HIGHLY recommend her. This is one piano teacher who needs to be teaching other music teachers! I have been her student, as has my daughter. I have used other piano methods and the Silva method is far and away the best.
