Group Guitar Class Description (ages 6-8)

Music Makers At the Keyboard (age 5-7)

Students beginning music instruction at this age will enjoy small group lessons at the keyboard which capitalize on a child’s delight in making music with others.  At the very first lesson, they learn a song they can sing and play with both hands.  Children who have been taking Musikgarten courses, come to the piano ready to play the songs they have learned to sing, dance, and love.  These classes are weekly 60 minute classes, and parents are required to attend the last 15 minutes of class.  Students will need a keyboard to practice on and the Children’s Lesson Book w/cds.

Group or Private Piano/Keyboard (age 7-8)

Students learn to play with friends in a fun, positive learning environment on digital pianos, electronic keyboards and acoustic grand piano.  Two to six students are grouped together according to age and skill levels.  Each lesson provides exposure to musical experiences which help the student internalize rhythmic pulse, notation, expression and basic harmony.  The private/group combination allows for weekly 30 minute group + 15 minute private instruction.  This lesson format is highly recommended, however, a 30 minute private lesson is another option available for those who require it.

Testimonial

Hi Sandy,

Hope you are having a good summer and that things are going well at the studio. I know we have not been in touch in a long time, but I just wanted to share this with you, since your work with Paige is still part of her life, in her own way right now, but that is what matters. So many of my friends are amazed that she can teach herself how to play the songs she wants to play. And it is all because of the start she had with your program.
Tried to send the link, but had a problem, it is www.youtube.com then search Paige Cosson. It is the “Back To December” that comes up, with her friend, Jenna Layton, singing.

Take Care,

Lisa Cosson
