What is Sound Beginnings?
KEYBOARD (4- to 6-year-olds with parent participation)
If your child can sing in tune and keep a steady beat, he or she is ready for instrumental instruction. Our curriculum teaches aural skills are taught along with technical skills and students learn to play by ear before music notation is introduced. Children and their parents learn together in a group of up to six families.
Classes begin in September only! Highlights include:
Weekly group lessons that are taught in a fun and playful manner.
The Music Class style song and movement activities at a more sophisticated level.
Learn to play many familiar songs on the keyboard.
Recitals featuring student solos, parent-child duets, and child-child duets and ensembles.
Beginning harmony, transposition and improvisation.
CD that guides you through each home practice session. Students are expected to practice at home at least three times per week.
Promote self-esteem and self-discipline.
Develop many musical skills that are easily transferred to other instruments.
Each class is 45 minutes.
Keyboard class is a one school-year curriculum. (Three sequential 10-week sessions.)
Students need an electronic keyboard or piano to practice on at home.
