Why choose group piano class instead of private lessons?
Group piano creates a fun learning environment with peers. It is important to learn music in an environment that is both challenging and enjoyable. This balance is created easily by including creative exploration, off-bench activities, improvisation, composing and playing together as a band or ensemble. The main benefits of group lessons are:
Home Practice will be Easier
Students won’t have as many questions at home
Students sight reading will improve
Students will complete books at a faster rate
Frequently asked questions:
Q: Do I have to have a piano or will a keyboard do?
A: You do not have to have a piano at home to take lessons. A simple full size electronic keyboard will suffice for the first 6 months.
Q: What do you learn in group piano lessons?
A: That question is often asked by prospective group students. Students will develop a strong sense of rhythm and a steady beat, learn to read music, compose and improvise. They will develop both listening and communication skills. Playing the piano with others teaches students to be active listeners. They also develop the ability to help each other as they are learning new music and growing together. Group lessons help develop focus and concentration. Playing music with others is a complete brain activity. Students hear the sounds, see the music, play the keyboard, listen to their teammates and sense the emotion of the music all at the same time. Music lessons will provide the opportunity for students to experience the joy found in making music. This joy can be experienced regardless of age or skill level. And, becomes one of the most motivating benefits of helping students become lifelong learners or music.
