Parent or caregiver attends class with the student and coaches daily at home. All group students must have their own piano or keyboard at home to practice on daily.
Young Musician 1 (ages 6-7)
Taking advantage of the emerging reading and dexterity skills of the six and seven year old student, the Young Musician series provides a wonderful opportunity for refining and strengthening beginning keyboard performance and note reading.
