Course Description

Private and group instruction bundle


The Preparatory Piano Program consists of a combination of group and private instruction for children ages 6-15. Group lessons offer peer reinforcement, social interaction, ensemble experience and group activities. Private lessons provide the necessary individual attention for technical development and interpretive and expressive insights. By combining these two approaches you receive a comprehensive 15-week curriculum. Participate in one 30-minute private lesson and one 50-minute group lesson each week. Students are grouped according to age and level. Using the Celebrate Piano Method, developed by Dr. Cathy Albergo and Dr. Mark Mrozinski of Harper College, and the Celebration Series of intermediate through advanced literature, students learn music reading, rhythm, theory, listening skills, finger and hand development, improvisation and composition through fun classroom activities. Children progress through varied and progressive musical repertoire from leading contemporary and traditional classical composers.

All students taking private lessons for the first time must fill out the new student application by clicking here. Once you're registered, our Piano Facilitator will get in touch with you regarding times, days and dates of the group portion of the program. Your instructor meanwhile will coordinate with you regarding private lessons.

All private lessons are held at Harper College's main campus.
