Teens at the Keys/Guitar

Teen classes are available at Mapleford Studio. We offer small group instruction in groups up to 8 in our keyboard and guitar classes.

We offer Teens at the Keys which is a fast paced course for both new to the piano and piano students wanting to learn to play in the modern lead sheet style used in bands.  We like to add some “garbage drumming” in some of our class hours. We also offer Teens at the Guitar for a great way to get started on the guitar. Drumming is also included in our Guitar classes.

So, if you play piano or guitar a little but you’re “not quite sure” since you picked it all up on your own, our classes are a great environment to help you step out with confidence. The first levels of classes are open to piano and keyboard students and all types of 6 string guitars.

Teens at the Keys is a small group piano class designed for teen learners. The class has solid piano skills emphasized in every class time. The goal is to have fun learning to play the ‘Keys’ with others using enjoyable music. As the class gets stronger in skills we will add music choices from the students as we are able. Students learn to quickly play along with the accompaniments on the CD and to play with each other in duets and ensembles! We even learn to play as an all-keyboard band.  The CD has wonderful learning tracks and accompaniments to work with in class and at home.

  • Ages: up to 18
  • Duration: Quarterly working our way though 2 books
  • Length: 50-55 minutes

First registration fee includes; the first Book & CD, notebook and pencil, Fall quarter tuition, and all processing fees.  The classes continues Fall, Winter, and Spring.  No additional materials costs until we finish book 1.
