Group Piano Lessons

Years ago, Ms. Libby noticed a need for age-appropriate piano lessons for preschool-age children. Although there are plenty of talented piano teachers available, there wasn't a play-based class that catered to the way very young children learn. With Ms. Libby's years of experience teaching early-childhood education and her background in music, she decided to provide a fun "starter pack" of group piano lessons that teach children the basic concepts of piano and prepares them for private lessons. Each step up (Beginner Piano, Piano 2 and Piano 3), helps transition very young children from learning through mostly games and preschool-related activities to finally sitting at a large sized keyboard for most of the lesson. After completing even one of the levels, he or she will be in a better position to start one-on-one private lessons!
Alternatively, perhaps your child is an athlete and has shown interest in an instrument but ongoing private lessons is too much of a commitment? Ms. Libby's group sessions offer an opportunity to give piano a try without a long (and expensive!) commitment.
*Depending on your child's age, they're welcome to join a higher level of piano even if they haven't taken the previous level. For example, a child who is 7 will learn more quickly than a 4 year old, and therefore (after evaluation) can join Piano 2 or 3. A group setting makes learning piano lots of fun!
Lessons are by semester in 10-week increments, (except for the summer session, which is 6 weeks).
*To insure retention of the material and manageability, classes are limited to 8 students
Beginner Piano - (ages 3.5 - 5)
Piano 2 - (ages 5-7)
Piano 3 - (7-10) *Book required, purchase on sign-up page
Parents are welcome to wait outside the room and view the lesson through the window on the door, or return when the lesson is over.
Please contact Ms. Libby for more details or register through the link at the top of the Sign-Up/Register Page.
Learning music can be an abstract concept for very young children, but through songs, games, puppets and practice, Ms. Libby makes learning easier and fun!
$15 per Lesson for first child, $10 per lesson for any additional children. Payment for session due in full on or before the first class.
