AROUND THE WORLD AND KEYBOARD (5 - 7) Once a week 55 minutes for 13 weeks plus recital
This method for groups of young beginners features a variety of activities which lay the foundation for keyboard success. The program includes an aural approach to music learning, building on songs children have come to love. this provides a natural pathway to reading music while building a much-loved piano repertoire. The instructors will challenge students to play the song repertoire, develop keyboard technique, improve their aural skills, and become fluent music readers.
