Piano Skills

Learning basic piano skills is the best way to create a solid foundation to explore music in all its forms.  This class will introduce the keys of the piano, basics of note reading, and finger work necessary for a succesful introduction to the instrument.  These skills can easily translate into the private lesson setting on any instrument in the future. We recommend that students have access to a keyboard at home to practice, but it is not required.

Rhythm & Drumming

Proper rhythm is one of the most essential parts of learning to play any kind of music.  We make it fun by using a full range of multicultural instruments in order to learn to read notated rhythms, notice patterns, and to feel the overall beat.  This rhythmic knowledge is easily transferable to the piano or to another instrument as well. 


End of the term party!
