Piano lessons take place at the Tuttle Road United Methodist Church, at 52 Tuttle Rd, Cumberland ME, 04021. We are minutes from both Yarmouth and Falmouth, and close to both Rt 1 and Rt 295 so easily accessible to students from Portland and Freeport.
Our goal is to pass on musicianship in an engaging way, using a variety of methods and materials. We teach from a classical approach. This doesn’t mean we teach only classical music, but we place a high emphasis on technique, music theory, and literacy of music notation. We aim to create independent learners. Regardless of how long a student studies with us, it is our hope that he or she will be equipped with the knowledge and curiosity to teach themselves pieces at or below their current level.
We strive to make our lessons fun and engaging. Learning is its own reward, yes, but sometimes an extra incentive is helpful. We use an assortment of prizes and small competitions throughout the year. Participation is optional – but the principle is simply that we want to inspire each student to do his or her best work.

"Our daughter has improved so much since she has been working with Liz, the owner of Hasbrouck Piano studio. She shows interest in playing and has gained confidence which for a 13 year old is a good thing. Thank you Liz!" - Vicki F.
"Liz Hasbrouck is an excellent piano teacher. She is very patient and creative in coming up with different ways to practice songs. I would highly recommend this studio." - Denise V.
"My son has been in piano lessons as a beginner with teacher, Maya Doumas, since 2014 when he was 6.5 years old. Maya is a caring, inspirational and engaging teacher and my son adores her. My husband and I have been amazed at his progress and interest which continues still almost 2 years later. Maya has a gift for connecting with young students and she is trained to work with students with special needs as well. Breton had a short opportunity to work with Liz Hasbrouck when Maya had her baby and we had an excellent experience with Liz as well. I highly recommend Maya and Liz Hasbrouck at Hasbrouck Piano Studio." - Jennifer W.
