Our Beginner Piano Group Class is a one-week course that introduces the complete beginner how to play piano. Students will learn the basics of music notation based on the course book. They will learn how to play basic 5-finger melodies, and how to play simple scales.
The course will cover the fundamentals of music theory and notation. Students who take the class will learn about reading music on both treble and bass clef. Students will learn to recognize the symbols for different types of rhythms that include quarter notes, half notes, and whole notes. As participants progress through the course book, they will be given exercises to build left/right hand dexterity, coordination and finger independence. Class size is kept small to ensure all students get the attention they need to help progress. Only six slots are available and each student will have their own keyboard to work with in each class.
Piano is a great foundational instrument for anyone who wants to learn music. It is well suited for young children for two reasons. One, they do not have to hold the instrument. Two, the piano keyboard makes music easy to visualize and learn. In addition, music lessons in general are beneficial for young children in a multitude of ways. Learning an instrument builds confidence in children by learning a new skill. Continued musical study builds a student’s ability to concentrate, a strong work ethic and the discipline needed for improvement. Children who study music also have increased emotional and social awareness, improved reading and comprehension skills and perform better in school.
