Welcome to Play for Ministry

Let us help you learn to play your instrument for use in God’s ministry and service. 

For more than 18 years we’ve been teaching people just like you how to play a musical instrument!  Our main focus is piano, but we can connect you with a variety of teachers for strings, brass, and even “non-traditional” instruments!

Let us help you.

You can start now with NO musical experience, OR you can build on your current musical foundation.

Either way, we can help you learn what you need to know.

Students in second grade through older adults are welcome to learn with us. Let us show you how to understand the written music, and how to embellish written music to create your own beautiful sounds.

In Studio now, and **NOW AVAILBLE** online!

We currently offer piano lessons during the school day and also before and after school. Current in-person lessons are held at Heritage Christian School on Spriggs Rd in Woodbridge, VA.

Online lessons are NOW available via Skype, Facetime or video exchanging.

Summer group classes are also offered. Come learn with friends!

Watch for our expansion with other instruments, too!

Our Studio

A music teacher is a professional who knows how to break down the process of learning the instrument.  A teacher can tailor the learning to meet YOUR needs and to help YOU understand and grow as a musician. 

At Play for Ministry our goal is to produce musicians who are functional in a church or ministry setting.  Whether that means accompanying individuals or groups, or providing background music,  or providing “specials,”  we can help you prepare.

Why should you choose to learn with us?

So many reasons to choose from

Caring Staff

We are here to help YOU succeed. We want you to have the best experience possible learning to play!

Qualified Staff

We actually DO play for ministry!
You can find us accompanying a choir, a solo or group, playing for congregational singing, or even providing concerts for the elderly.

Variety of Options

We teach children as well as adults. And we tailor our teaching to your particular needs. Whether it's learning to improvise, or to play exactly what's written, we can help you.

"My daughter had never taken any piano lessons before starting with Mrs. Scarfi, but as soon as she began her love for the art of music instantly started growing. Mrs. Scarfi is an extremely experienced musician with very effective teaching methods. Her patient and encouraging teaching style gave my daughter the confidence to trust her abilities and by the end of the school year my daughter was performing mini piano recitals in the house for us every week!"
