In our Let’s Play Music Piano Classes we use the reputable music curriculum, Let’s Play Music. This exciting curriculum teaches advanced musical skills to young children (beginning age is 5-6) through play, experience, and discovery! Let’s Play Music​ is a complete three-year music course based on proven philosophies and research. It emphasizes total musicianship through piano playing, singing, folk and classical music, note reading, and ear training. What does it teach?

  • Emphasizes melodic, harmonic, and rhythmic ear training
  • Introduces spatial skills necessary for note and rhythm reading
  • Teaches note reading
  • Studies the music of the masters to understand classic form and instrumentation
  • Encourages freedom of expression and musical interpretation
  • Channels the young voice into beautiful singing by providing correct vocal models and frequent singing opportunities
  • Teaches fundamentals of harmony and chord progressions
  • Utilizes “full body movement” for more effective assimilation of concepts and skills
  • Adapts skills to the piano

What does all this mean? It develops musical aptitude. Your child will learn the things that cause us as adults to say that a person is musically talented. Can you teach talent? YOU BET!!! Research has shown that musical aptitude (talent) is more acquired than it is hereditary. “Musically talented” people are so, not because of genetics, but because of exposure to a musical environment at a young age. When you register for our Let’s Play Music program, it is understood that you are committing to the three year program. However, we know that life happens, and sometimes you cannot honor that commitment. We do ask that you do your best to complete Year One before deciding to not continue with the program. Of course, it is our every hope that you and your child will love the program, and will continue on this amazing journey with us all three years! Class Size is 4 – 8 children. Please note that a minimum of 4 children must enroll before we open the class. Entry Age is 5 – 6 year olds (must be 5 years old by September 1, 2020). This is for Year One only.
