What’s involved in Distance Learning!

Our professional, trained long-time staff teach LIVE classes on Zoom, which are also recorded for future play back should any student not be able to attend the assigned hour. Course materials are available for download from our site after registering. 

Using an age-appropriate and super-fun progression, our curriculum integrates the building blocks of the entire music language: Music theory and notation, sight-reading, repertoire, piano finger technique, rhythm and solfegge and playing by ear, which ensures the same quality education as our private in-person lessons.

Students are able to transfer these proficiencies to any instrument for future study, advanced private keyboard lessons or back to their school music ensembles. Our group classes are taught in short, manageable modules, with clear instructions and easy to manage self-practice activities.

Tiny Hands, Parent & Me!

Ages 5-7 

Early Childhood Piano and Music Education 

Tiny hands and wiggly bodies doesn’t mean children ages 5-7 can’t learn LOTS of music and play the piano! Enjoy a weekly experience with your child, immersed in high-quality music education and joy of learning. Of course, jammies are always welcomed!

What we learn through vocalization, repetition, games, and parent-child interaction:

Melody/harmony, singing, solfege, rhythm, reading/notation and keyboard technique for smaller fingers.

Historically speaking, children who start in this age group are primed to develop advanced skills in music reading, finger technique, ear-training and musicianship with earlier entry into private instruction on all instruments. Younger children are invited to repeat the course until prepared to continue to the next level, or private lessons.
