Our 6-Week Intro to Piano class is the perfect way for your child to see what piano lessons are all about, in a fun group setting with other kids their age!

Location:

Our NEW location is at 1630 Albert Street (across from the old Superstore). We are in the studios above Dancer's Den Dancewear.

Thinking of putting your child in piano lessons?

It can be a pretty big commitment - renting or buying a keyboard, buying piano books, finding the right teacher and committing to a year of lessons. PLUS, what if it turns out that your child doesn't even 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! 

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.

Age Requirements

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.

 

Any adults interested? Let us know! We would LOVE to get an adult class going!

FAQs for Intro to Piano

Do I need to buy a piano?

Students will need a piano or keyboard that they can practice on at home during the week while taking this course. We suggest renting a small keyboard until you find out if your 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.

What happens after this 6-week course is done?

Students who are wishing to continue piano lessons following this "Intro to Piano" course, will join our  sign up for a 1-on-1 lesson with one of our piano coaches. These lessons are offered on a variety of days and times throughout the week - with both online and In-Person options!

OUR RESPONSE to COVID-19:

At Sing Like A STAR, we are going above and beyond - not only following all provincial guidelines, but also taking additional, over-the top steps to make sure our students and staff are as safe as possible during this time.

We spent hundreds of hours this summer/fall researching best practices, so are beyond confident in the precautions and procedures we implemented and continue to enforce since our re-opening in September, 2020. We even consulted with a health care professional to ensure we didn't miss any steps along the way.
