The piano preparatory program is specifically designed to help achieve the greatest success for our young beginners. 4-6 year old students who have not completed either the Music for Little Mozarts or the Mini Musicians course (or another music class equivalent from another studio) will prepare for private piano lessons by first completing an 8-week Piano Preparatory Class. This 40-minute class uses fun games and activities to introduce basic music concepts including steady beat, rhythm concepts, note values, finger numbers, high/low, loud/soft, long/short, etc.
Students will have a small assignment to review daily at home between classes. Parents must be prepared to assist with this. This will only take about 15 minutes per day. It will be helpful to already have either an acoustic piano, or a digital piano with 88 keys, at home. But it is not absolutely necessary during this class. Students are, however, required to have this at home in order to continue with private lessons at the end of the 8-week session. If you do not already have a piano, please consult with Mrs. Brown about her recommendations before making a purchase.
At the end of the 8-week Piano Preparatory class, each student will be assigned a time slot for weekly 45-minute private lessons. Through careful balancing of on- and off-bench activities and instruction, these lessons will be perfectly tailored to meet the needs of your young beginner. Parents should be prepared to assist with daily practice assignments. Instructions will be clear, and although it is helpful, it is not necessary for parents to have experience playing piano to help their child with this.
