Music Makers: At the Keyboard is a comprehensive approach to learning music. Learning music comprehensively is much more than being able to name notes or being able to differentiate between quarter and half notes. Our beginner piano lessons provide comprehensive musicianship leads a child to music literacy, or the ability to hear in one’s head music that is written on the page. Conversely, the musically literate person will be able to figure how to play the melody, harmony, and rhythm of a piece s/he hears, without needing to see the written music.
Music Makers: At the Keyboard is a group/ Partner method. By studying the piano in a group setting, singing games and movement activitiesare naturally a part of the experience. These are the very things that nurture the musician inside each child, making success at the keyboard possible. The group also allows children to learn from each other and overcome performance anxiety. Most importantly, the group/ partner setting keeps the fun in music-making.
