Piano Department Information

DSA Piano Department’s goal is to help students develop keyboard techniques, musicianship, aural skills, and music knowledge essential to playing piano through a creative and systematic program. Students develop their ability to express the music they feel and understand creatively and become independent musicians. In addition, students have the opportunity to perform on stage and in class each semester. Students gain wide-ranging experience in performing on stage through the variety of performance opportunities, learning desirable performance posture and stage etiquette, and appreciating the works of others.

Fill the Gap Campaign

DSA is a unique school with unique needs. The actual cost of educating a DSA student with an extraordinary arts and academic education is beyond the funding that is provided by the district. In order to fully fund DSA’s nationally competitive arts and academics, we are faced with a gap. This year the financial “gap” that DSA faces is $1500 per student for the school year.

DSA’s Fill the Gap Campaign was launched in 2017, and all DSA parents were asked to come together to Fill the Gap with an unrestricted, tax-deductible contribution.  Over the past 5 years this support has allowed DSA to provide quality educational programs in the arts and academics, capital improvements for DSA’s unique needs, financial resources for low-income students, programming to increase Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, and more. A school-wide culture of philanthropy is essential to the success of our students and fulfilling our mission…and together we will be stronger!

Your support of the Fill the Gap Campaign at a level that fits your budget will help us reach our goal of 100% participation and is 100% tax deductible. Join the hundreds of DSA parents who are already supporting DSA through either a monthly or one-time donation.
