Intro to Piano

6-week course

Are you considering putting your child in piano lessons?

 

It can be a pretty big commitment - renting or buying a keyboard, buying
piano books, finding a teacher, committing to a year of lessons - and what
if it turns out that child just doesn't enjoy playing piano?

We think we have the perfect answer! Why not register your child for our "Intro to Piano" course? That way they can see what piano lessons are all about, in a fun group setting with other kids their age. You can find out if they enjoy playing piano, before you make a commitment for the full year ahead! There is no difference between the 4-week and the 6-week courses (aside from the amount of weeks and the cost). They just end up being 4 - 6 weeks long, depending on what fits into our calendar best.

Sing Like A STAR began as a program that only taught singing lessons, but has since expanded to offer fun, confidence boosting, lessons on the piano as well.

Our founder Amy Nelson has designed this "Intro to Piano" program to get students playing at least one song they recognize by the time they leave their first lesson. Students are taught the solid fundamentals needed to succeed in learning to play the piano, but at the same time as having songs they are familiar with added in to keep the lessons fun and engaging and to motivate students to want to keep progressing.

*Students will need a piano or keyboard that they can practice on at home during the week. We suggest renting a small keyboard until you find out if you child enjoys piano lessons. ​A keyboard can be rented at a local music store for as little as $12 - $20 a month. Let us know if you would like any more information.

Grade Level

From past experience, we have seen the majority of students succeed in this program when they are age 6 and older (at least grade 1). We realize that every child learns at a different pace, so will consider younger students on a case by case basis. Adults are welcome to sign up as well. We would LOVE to get an adult class going! 

 

Class Length

Classes are 45 minutes long, however we schedule a full hour so that from time to time, we can invite parents in to show off what we have been working on! 

 

Registration/Class Schedule you enroll in the 'Intro to Piano' class, choose the class that best works with your schedule. However, in order to group students of similar ages/grade levels together, we might call to see if you are available at an alternate time. If you enroll in this class and we are unable to find a suitable aged group at a time which works for you, we will process a full refund without hesitation.
