Group Piano Classes

The program combines age-appropriate piano instruction with general musicianship activities to promote overall musical development. Skills taught include listening, pitch matching, keyboard technique and performance, singing, rhythm, movement, and music appreciation.In this four-semester program, parents attend lessons and share in the learning process at home as they partner with their child to lay the foundation for a lifetime of musical enjoyment. This sequential program builds on the knowledge and skills of the preceding semesters.  Class size is limited to 5 students for Fall 2021.
