Description

See the FAQs below for important information about these classes.


* Beginner Piano/Keyboard Class for children ages 6 - 16 *

Eight 1-hour classes on Fridays at 5:45pm beginning on January 19 and ending on March 9. Additional classes may be offered to finish the book.

Instructor: Andrey Lubimtsev

This is hands-on learning from the start as everyone has their own keyboard to use in class. By the end of the 8-week session, participants will have a basic understanding of the keyboard and basic music theory. Young students will be able to play simple melodies one hand at a time; older children will be able to play a simple melody with basic accompaniment.

Some of the topics covered include:
· Music Theory
· Notation
· Melody/Chords
· Hand Position
· Posture

Group classes for beginners offer a number of advantages over starting with private lessons. Besides the cost savings, the group environment offers more time to learn with an instructor. Playing along with others is also a benefit to learning, and it’s more fun! Plus, these classes have been organized as a fundraiser for the new nonprofit music school, the Keystone Musical Arts Center, so you can feel extra good about learning how to play piano!

100% of the proceeds will benefit the Keystone Musical Arts Center!


FAQs

Is there a discount for additional family members?

Yes! Additional family members (siblings) are half price.

What book are you using and how much does it cost?

We use the Bastian Piano Method. The cost is $7 and you can pay the teacher directly on the first day of class.

Is there a chance that we will be asked to switch to a different class time?

The 4:30 and 5:45 sessions almost always have enough students, but the 3:15 class often doesn't. We also may ask certain students to switch classes in order to balance out the groups. Register for the class you want and then we'll be in touch to confirm all of the details. If there is an issue and we are not able to accommodate you, then there is no obligation and your credit card will not be charged. Please note that we try our best to make everyone happy and no one has ever canceled.

Can younger students participate?

Maybe. Younger (age 5) may be able to take the class but a brief evaluation is needed first. Please contact us for more information about this.

Do I need to have a piano at home?

You will need to have access to a piano or at least an inexpensive keyboard so that you can practice between classes. Keyboards will be provided during the classes, so the only thing you will need to bring with you each week is the book.

If you don't have access to a piano or keyboard but would still like to take the class, contact us to see what options might be available.

I'm interested but the time doesn't work for me, or I’m in a different age group.

Please let us know! We will have new classes starting after this one and the details for these will be determined in part by the interest shown ahead of time. We'd like to put together an adult class sometime soon!

Is there a way to "try it before you buy it"?

Yes! On Friday, January 12th at 4:30pm. Click Free Intro Piano Class for more info and to register.

Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?

We'd love to hear from you! Direct emails to info@KeystoneMusicalArtsCenter.org or call us at 717-737-KMAC (5622).
