Beginner (ages 8-12)
This class is designed to get your child playing right away. Students are introduced to the piano, and in 5 weeks will be able to recognize all the notes, play simple songs, chords, and read basic music notation for the piano. In addition, they will learn basic skills in rhythm, melodic direction, music theory and gain experience improvising and playing in an ensemble. We recommend taking this course in conjunction with Music Theory Fun & Games. Students will need a piano or an electronic keyboard (at least 4 octaves are recommended).
Materials Fee: $5 for binder & assignment sheets (handouts)
