The Music in Me

These classes are a fun introduction to piano, solfege, rhythm, and note-reading. We'll be singing songs and solfege, playing our first notes on the piano, reading notes on the musical staff, and playing basic rhythms on all kinds of fun instruments. Sessions consist of six or seven 45-minute classes. Parent participation is required.

Ages 4½ to 6

Harmony Road Level 1

These classes focus on the fundamentals of music: keyboard playing, singing and solfege, reading in treble and bass clefs, and rhythm comprehension. Students also participate in our school-wide recital at the end of the semester! Sessions consist of 14 classes plus a free 15th class to offset absences. Classes are 55 minutes. Parent participation is required.

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!
