The Preparatory Piano Program
The program consists of a combination of group and private instruction for ages 6 tp 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.
