It is important to train the young musical mind and hand properly so as to ensure maximum progress, and my experience can be mined to get these results for you, or your child.  

Known for my flexibility in approach and scheduling, you'll find that I'm able to work with your family's busy lifestyle and create realistic expectations that develop lifelong skills and a love of Music, and The Piano.

Proudly serving the NH/ME Seacoast area from my downtown Portsmouth, NH studio.

Hi!   I'm Paul Dykstra and I have decades of performance and teaching experience gained in Canada and the United States.   I'm a member of the Royal Conservatory of Music's College of Examiners (aka The Music Development Program here in America) and have performed many solo, duo and chamber music concerts as well as soloing with Orchestra.  

​I work with students of all ages and abilities, and, while Classical music is especially dear to my heart, I have been able to incorporate imaginative approaches to other styles like Jazz and Pop into goal-oriented learning trajectories for my students
