Group Piano Lessons for Kids (Ages 4 to 8)
FREE TRIAL LESSONS on Thursdays @ 3:30pm, Saturdays @ 10:15am! Contact us to RSVP!
Kids Music teaches young children (4 – 8 yrs old) the basics of music in interactive small group piano classes (up to 4 kids). The education begins with the basics of:
1. Labeling our hands & fingers
2. Identifying the keys on the piano and reading music by finger numbers
3. Reading music by note names and written music notation
4. Playing short pieces from the books
This program is not to be confused with “music and movement” activity classes offered at daycares. Our program consists of real music lessons at the piano delivered in a more affordable group class (up to 4 kids) to prep for private lessons.
There are three levels in our Kids Music program: A, B, C. This is in order to make sure students are in the best environment regarding their age and their capabilities within the class.
Level A: 4 to 5 years old, no experience
Level B: 5 to 6 years old, little to no experience
Level C: 6 to 8 years old, little or some experience
New students are assessed one-on-one during the trial lesson and arranged into the classes according to their age, experience, and their ability to go through the material provided during the trial lesson. CONTACT US to schedule for a free trial lesson.

Kids Music vs. Private Lessons:
Private lessons traditionally warrant a certain level of responsibility that is placed on the student (such as practice, progress, & performance).
Kids Music is intended to let young kids engage in real music lessons while being free of teacher and parent expectations being forced on them and to allow parents a more affordable option for exploring music lessons for their young children.
