Piano Partners:  

Keyboard I ~ TWO students 5 1/2 - 9 & parent

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). 

Family Activities and Materials:

  • 2 books, 4 CDs and notation games, plus a Parent Handbook throughout the 28 weeks       

Class times: Forty-minute lessons available Thursdays for two students/parents. Thursdays: 3 - 3:40; 3:45 - 4:25; 4:30 - 5:10; 5:15 - 5:55 for public & private students; 1:30 or 2:15 for homeschoolers.

Classes begin:  Thursday, September 13th & commitment is for two semesters September through late April

Registration: $130  ($65 /semester will hold your place in class with registration form). 

Tuition: $398 ($199 / 14-week semester, payable 1st class)

Total: $528 for fall and spring semester

Home piano or keyboard tuned to A 440 needed. No headphones at home, please. Yes, we want to hear playing and singing each day at home.
