Group Piano

This innovative approach to beginning piano study takes place in the CMS digital keyboard lab and acts as a springboard to private lessons. The group class provides children, ages 7-15 years old, with the opportunity to learn piano concepts in a social environment through ear training, singing, rhythm work, games, ensembles, performance, technique, theory, and improvisation.
