Piano and Keyboard
Individual piano and keyboard lessons are offered to children and adults. Students develop technique and skills to build repertoire through rhythm reading, melodic pattern notation, and by analyzing patterns and music form.
Ensemble class teaches students to play and perform piano duets. Students are trained to “catch the rhythm”, whether it is fast or slow, and learn to listen to each other to produce subtle changes in dynamics and tempo. Playing duets gives students the opportunity to sense their partners’ musicianship. In addition, playing together for family and friends is a wonderful way to spread the joy of music to others.
Group theory lessons are based on discovering creativity while providing instruction and reinforcement of theory concepts through writing, sight-reading, and ear training activities. Students will be grouped by their individual levels. This class is highly recommended for all students.
