Piano

Piano group beginner lessons are for the child who would like to become familiar with playing. Lessons focus on getting each child involved using a variety of musical games and activities. Students will start with the basics of finding notes, learning rhythm and how to read simple piano music.

Intermediate classes are designed for the student with some piano knowledge already, who prefer a group or class setting. We’ll begin by reviewing the basics, however this class moves more quickly so that students will be able to apply sharps and flats, read more complicated music, and apply their theory knowledge to song writing.
