Group Piano Classes

Music for Little Mozarts is a great follow-up to our Kindermusik® program, introducing kids ages 4-6 to the piano and preparing them for individual lessons. The program combines age-appropriate piano instruction with general musicianship activities to promote overall musical development. Skills taught include listening, pitch matching, keyboard technique and performance, singing, rhythm, movement, and music appreciation. In this four-semester program, parents attend lessons and share in the learning process at home as they partner with their child to lay the foundation for a lifetime of musical enjoyment. This sequential program builds on the knowledge and skills of the preceding semesters. Class size is limited to 6 students.
