Piano Partners & piano Lessons
Classes and lessons for children Ages 6 1/2 to 9 years
Keyboard I ~ Ages 6 1/2 - 9 & parent (for part of the class)
Piano Partners: Keyboard I is a new program as part of Young Artists Music Studio. The curriculum includes games, songs, focused listening, learning the piano, writing pages, game cards, CDs, etc. Music literacy is the goal and this class is designed to teach children to hear and play the beloved song repertoire learned through the early years of YAMS. These lessons follow a sequential approach to piano and musical notation is taught through the classroom books.
Parents play an important role in establishing good practice habits and attend all classes. (Don’t worry if you don’t know piano—you will learn along with your child!) Consistent, supervised at-home practice on a tuned piano or keyboard (chosen by families) is required and essential for success (5 days per week, 15 - 20 minutes per day).
