Family Piano Class, Book 1

Beginning Keyboard

For ages 5-1/2 to 12

14 weeks of classes, 1 recital / Parent participates with the child / 60 min class once a week.

Your child will gallop through the early levels of piano study, eager and excited to play piano! We drum, sing, play games and move to the music we are learning on the piano. Parents participate and help their child at home. 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. Children (and parents) will:

  • 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.

Our goal is for the child to succeed and have fun. To facilitate this and to participate in this program, there will first be parent orientation.

PREREQUISITE: 1-2 years of Pre-Piano Classes at the Center OR equivalent. Child has to have some music knowledge before starting this class. Please call Ms. Mary at 513-259-4459 if interested in joining this class.

Class is offered on:
