Music Moves For Piano

(PreK-2nd Grade)

Group piano lessons teach student musicians to hear what they play and play what they hear in engaging, creative and fun classes.  Lesson activities sequentially apply what research says about how children best learn music and encourage students to listen, think, move, sing, improvise and perform.  Students develop solid piano technique and keyboard skills through solos, duets and improvisations.  Four students is the maximum per class. 

In Music Moves for Piano students learn to:

  • Improvise, play by ear, transpose, and harmonize
  • Sing and play
  • Perform with comfort and fluency in a variety of social settings
  • Play with technical ease and freedom from muscular tension
  • Listen to and perform music with understanding
  • Think about music in the context of a meter and a tonality
  • Become independent music thinkers

Music Moves for Piano:

  • Is based on research
  • Is versatile, adaptable and developmentally appropriate for many levels of skill
  • Helps students to learn music as an aural art – ‘sound before sight’
  • Builds lifetime skills through movement, chanting, and singing
  • Is creative – students make music from the beginning
  • Develops the entire musician
  • Internalizes improvisation skills and musical understanding
