KEYBAND! for Elementary Groups
A group keyboard experience for student to build Piano/Keyboard ensemble skills while learning chord structure, improvisation and instrumentation. Students love playing with a group as it creates a social environment often unavailable to most pianists. This program is built on the model designed by Andrew Eales in the UK for public schools.
Recitals and Studio Events
Frequent recitals, celebrations and events to allow sharing with family, friends and the community at large are planned throughout the year. Community service projects, summer camps and week long summer lessons are just a small part of studio programs. A practice theme for the studio is chosen each year for our Elementary aged students. Activities are centered around that theme for the year.
A special 'Time for Teens' group for all Middle and High Schoolers gives our older students a time to learn, share and serve their community.
