Fun, Affordable Group Piano Instruction
Keys for Kids
Wish you could introduce your child to the piano but worry that it's too much of a commitment? What if it didn't have to be? The innovative Keys for Kids® program for ages 3 and up teaches piano in a fun, engaging, and supportive group setting.
The concept is simple: Students enjoy sharing music with their friends and are motivated by the group experience. They learn piano keyboard skills, note reading, rhythm, and improvisation in a classroom equipped with an electronic keyboard for each child. Parents participate, too, learning whatever the kids do.
Courses are designed to develop musical skills at both the individual and group levels using a carefully planned sequence that guarantees fun and success. Activities cover many aspects of musicianship while accommodating children's attention spans, establishing a solid musical foundation that can be applied to any future instrument. (Click here for more information on the Keys for Kids® curriculum.)
Classes are available in three age groups: Mini Keys for 3.5-5 year-olds, Kinder Keys for 5-7 year olds, and Super Keys for ages 7 and up.
Keys for Kids® can help you achieve your goals, whether your child wants to pursue a musical dream or play piano for the simple joy of it!
