Group Piano Classes are a fun learning environment for the beginning* piano student. While emphasis is placed on learning to read music, students will also learn to play some songs without traditional sheet music. Games and activities are often used to teach musical concepts. Students will experience playing individually, in unison with the group, and together as an ensemble.
*Note: This class is for beginning students. It is not suitable for students who have had prior piano lessons (unless the student is an adult who took minimal lessons as a child). It is also not suitable for students with significant learning delays or behavior disorders. If you are unsure if this class is a good fit for your child, please contact the studio before registering.
Each student must have an 88-key acoustic or digital piano at home to use for daily practice.
*Note: I believe Tarpley Music, in Burleson, has a rental program for digital pianos, if you'd like to consider that route.
This is a weekly class. Class meets one day each week for 50 minutes. Commitment is for the full school year. Tuition is to be paid in full, even if the student withdraws early (no refunds). There are a couple of different options for payment plans available (see below).
Students are expected to attend every class. If an absence is necessary, due to illness, student will be responsible for picking up the assignment from the studio and preparing for the next class. If the instructor is notified by noon on the day of class that you will be absent, your class will be recorded and sent to you via private YouTube link. You will be expected to watch the video and do the activities and assignments on your own. If, at any time, a student feels they are falling behind, a private lesson can be scheduled with one of our instructors for a fee of $40 for 30 minutes.
Students in beginner piano classes are STRONGLY encouraged to also enroll in the Music Makers class to help reinforce the concepts we are learning and, therefore, speed their progress.
