Beginning Piano

Beginning Piano students learn the basics of the piano keys, music alphabet, rhythm and melody. All students will increase fine motor skills and learn transferable musical skills in this accessible first entry class.

This is a small group class focused on preparing students for private instruction, Elementary group classes, and/or ensembles. Each class is limited to 5 students and is designed to train the child’s ear to recognize melodic sounds and rhythm. Students then translate this recognition to their chosen instrument. The students will begin to visually identify notes and play simple melodies.

Materials: Should have a keyboard or a piano at home. Inexpensive electronic toy keyboards are acceptable for beginners.
Requirements: All returning Beginning Piano students are advised to select and register for class sections according to teacher recommendation. Students registering for Beginning Piano II must have completed the Beginning Piano I prerequisite and been awarded prior approval from their teacher.

Ages: 4-7
Instructor(s): Macky Caldoza
