School of the Arts - Courses - ASC2018 - Group Piano (Grades 5-8)

Piano playing is a wonderful avenue for developing the mind and for finding personal expression. Group classes will cover playing technique and note reading. As part of the learning process, students will have the opportunity to write and learn their own note patterns and tunes. Students will be provided with weekly theory sheets to complete at home. We also encourage them to practice playing at home as much as possible. Practice greatly accelerates learning!

This is a class for students in Grades 5-8.

**Please note that though it is an asset to have a piano or a keyboard to practice on at home, it is not a requirement of the course. No prior experience with piano is necessary.**
