Group Piano Lessons for Children
Group Piano Lessons for Children Ages 3 - 11 years are offered at various locations and schools
Since learning to play the piano is one of the most rewarding things a child can accomplish, the program’s goal is to create positive and memorable musical experiences for children and their families. My mission is to instill a love of music in all children by introducing them to classical music and teaching them to play enjoyable familiar and new songs.

Group Piano Class for Preschool-Age Children: ages 3 - 5
In this fun class preschool children will be introduced to the first building blocks of music: keyboard/piano geography, singing notes by Solfege: do, re, mi, piano fingering, locating notes on the keyboard and learning to play first simple tunes. Basic note reading will include values and rhythm patterns, expressive movement, musical games, and musical stories.
This class is for children that outgrew the type of music program that just based on fun and exposure to music only. In this class, children learn about music (notes, rhythm, pitch, dynamics, composers and etc) and music making directly with the piano/keyboard.
Group Piano Class for Children ages: 4 - 8 or 8 – 11
This class features piano/keyboard playing in both solo and ensemble setting. Children will learn to read music notation and rhythmic patterns by playing familiar songs, while simultaneously learning simple, new songs through traditional note reading, singing expressive songs, rhythm reading, finger skills, pitch concepts, composing and improvising melodies.
