Course DescriptionBegin your piano journey in a fun-filled group instruction setting! Using the award-winning Celebrate Piano! Lesson and Musicianship 1A book, students will start at the very beginning and focus on keyboard geography, beginning music notation, finger exercises, and playing short songs on the piano. Instruction includes group activities and individual attention in our state-of-the-art Yamaha Clavinova keyboard lab. Students must have an instrument at home for daily practice. Materials purchased separately.
In addition to our group music classes for youth, we offer these specialized programs:
The Preparatory Piano Program
The program consists of a combination of group and private instruction for ages 6-14. Group lessons offer students peer reinforcement, social interaction, ensemble experience, and group activities. Private lessons give students the necessary individual attention for technical development and interpretive and expressive insights. By combining these two approaches, students receive a comprehensive 15-week curriculum. Students will participate in one 30-minute private lesson and one 50-minute group lesson each week.
