    Children’s Very Beginner/Begin Again: Age 5-13

    Many students and parents believe that piano lessons helped improve concentration and hand/eye skills for school and sports. Learn the fun and easy way to play piano from a teacher who is patient and loves to teach everyone the joy of music. If you are a very beginner or want to begin again, you will start by learning the basics of music and piano, how to read Treble and Bass Staffs, time signatures, and develop ear training and performance etiquette by solo and ensemble piano playing. There will be a performance during the last 20 minutes of your session. See registration receipt for supply list and bring all supplies to the first class.

    Children and Teens Continuing Students

    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. See registration receipt for supply list and bring all supplies to the first class.
