Group Piano

1x per week . 4 lesson per month
Children and Adults . Monday - Saturday
We initiated group lessons when we saw how how excited and engaged students of all ages were during our summer group programs. We have found that small groups allow students to make friends; provide a sense of accountability; offer healthy competition that encourages practicing between lessons; enforces the skills to focus and practice independently; allow students to have fun in sharing their accomplishments with peers; and develops ensemble skills.
