Group Classes for Children

About our Remote Classes

We will be rolling out new classes for beginners in early February. As always, we group children of similar ages and levels together; but this spring the classes will be super small, with only two or three students. This means that your child can enjoy the virtual company of their peers over Zoom but still get a lot of individualized attention from their teacher! When we're not using our fingers to play piano, we're crossing them in the hopes that we'll be able to resume small in-person classes later this spring!

About Our Return to In-Person Classes

We are so excited about our successful transition back to in-person classes! There's nothing like making music together in the same room! This fall we will be offering beginning and continuing classes with a maximum class size of seven students. This means that your child can enjoy the fun of a group class but still get a lot of individualized attention from their teacher! Learn more about what we're doing at The Music Room to stay safe as we emerge from the pandemic.

Scheduling Options

We're still working on the fall schedule, so let us know your availability by filling out our survey. We'll keep you posted about any classes that might work for you!
