Ensemble and Semi-Private Keyboard Classes for Kids
Keys for Kids® provides the perfect musical introduction for young children. Keys for Kids introduces children to ear training, rhythm, singing, solfege and keyboard performance in a small group setting. The School provides keyboards for the group lessons; however, students must have a piano or keyboard at home to practice. Workbooks offer weekly exercises for home and class. Parent/Caregiver participation at lessons is required. Parents/Caregivers do not need prior music instruction to participate.
Ensemble classes are divided into age groups and meet for 30-45 minutes per week. Instructors will recommend the appropriate level of instruction for students with previous piano training.
Through a carefully layered curriculum, children learn the first building blocks of music, solfege, singing, movement, ear training, rhythm activities, ensemble keyboard playing, and music reading skills.
Ages 5 – 6
The curriculum includes ear training, singing, rhythm and note reading games, improvisation, and keyboard performance in both solo and ensemble settings.
Continuing classes for students who have progressed through previous levels of the Keys for Kids® program.
