    Children and Teens Continuing Students: Age 5-16

    Studies show piano instruction enhances children and teen’s reasoning skills that are necessary for learning math and science. Continuing piano lessons can encourage self confidence, poise and self-discipline. The teacher and students bond as a “music team” during lessons and this carries on at home with the parents during daily practice and during family/friends activities. By learning at your own pace and individually in a group class, you will learn more key and time signatures, tempos, intervals, rests, etc. Bring piano and theory books you are currently using and to broaden your musical education, you will be introduced to additional choices.  There will be a performance during the last 20 minutes of your session.
