Kids at the Keys is a great way for grade school children to get started in lessons or to add enrichment to traditional lessons. The class has solid piano skills emphasized in every class time.

Students who complete this series are ready to begin individual instruction and have the framework to enjoy more developed playing in their first individual lessons!
- Ages: 8 to 11
- Duration: Continuous quarters through 2 books.

We use a group environment in our recreational approach. Students learning to play while having fun with friends learning to play contemporary stylings. This nationally recognized piano program will have your 7 to 11 year old playing from the very first class. Students in their first years of individual lessons really enjoy all the music and activities of class while they grow in their music skills and music foundations. Students will experience the fun of playing in their own Piano Band. This group environment provides many positive musical and non-musical benefits including the development of visual tracking, mental concentration, and listening skills as they learn to blend together as an ensemble. Improvisation, composition and other expressive activities are encouraged and will have your child looking forward to each week as they make music with their friends.

- Learn to read music

Kids at the guitar Class Information -
CHANGE!! We will offer ukulele for kids.
Students need a Soprano, Concert, or Tenor size Ukulele. At our summer events we have been enjoying helping kids play on the Ukulele's we have brought out. With the decreased tension on the strings with the small instrument it is much easier for younger children to have success. The details below in the guitar description apply to the Ukulele class. The tuner type, etc.
With enough interest we offer our Kids at the Guitar class. Please contact us and request to be placed on a wait list.
As with all of our classes we are after fun and foundations. When offered we use age appropriate materials and classroom activities to aid in the child learning to play the guitar. A correctly-sized guitar is mandatory for each student. These younger students need a 3/4 or even a 1/2 to 1/4 sized guitar! Parents, although you may not be attending class with your child they need your assistance in having time, space, and a way to regularly use the CD in at home review. An excellent activity to do 2 times each week is to have your child demonstrate how to do everything from the last class for you, and then have them teach you on the guitar. Please get a clip-on tuner designed specifically for guitars – it works the best for this age group. Students receive a course book, a chord booklet, and handouts. A CD is included in the course book and parents must help and encourage their child in using the CD – especially through the whole the first session!
- Ages: 8 to 11 years
- Duration: Quarterly
- Class Length: 45 minutes
- Class Size: 3 to 8 students
Highly motivated younger children ages 5 and 7 may attend Kids at the Guitar with a parent accompanying them to all class meetings. Schedule a meeting with an instructor to learn more.
