Beginning Keyboard, Book 1

Beginning Keyboard

Your child will gallop through the beginning keyboard levels with Musikgarten’s Beginning Keyboard, an active approach to playing! In the first book, the children (along with their parent) will learn to

  • play and recognize by ear major and minor key songs, play in five different hand positions,
  • read/write rhythms in duple and triple, and
  • begin sight-singing major key patterns on the staff.

There will be a parent orientation for the class, see below. Parents attend class with their children, participating in activities, learning to read rhythms, and taking notes to ensure a successful start to their child’s playing the keyboard/piano.

=====

Please join us for an information meeting about our group piano classes, for parents and their child, aged 5.5 – 8, beginner level. We won’t pressure you into signing-up – just come and get your questions answered.
