Music Makers at the Keyboard, Years I, II, and III
6 1/2 years for children who have completed one year of Music Makers
7 to 9 years for other children

Musikgarten’s groundbreaking piano classes are a wonderful way to begin the study of piano.

Building on the activities experienced in Music Makers: At Home and Music Makers: Around the World, this seventy-minute class follows a carefully structured approach to the development of musicianship, keyboard skills, and the understanding of musical notation.

Children in our classes often run into the room, hardly able to wait to play the songs they’ve been hearing, singing, drumming, and dancing. Lessons at the keyboard in small groups allow the children to experience the delight in making music with others, while at the same time encouraging the development of rhythmic competency, listening skills, singing, and music-reading. The children experience it all—improvising, composing, playing by ear, and reading notation!

Parents/caregivers participate with us in the final fifteen minutes of each class, and are invited to attend the entire class at any time.

Required equipment: A good piano or keyboard at home, along with an easy-to-use CD player placed near the piano. The children will also need a bag in which to carry their materials to class.
