, , , , , Piano Shed Returns in August!

We are excited to announce our group piano class, Piano Shed 🎹 is returning in August. Sign up before July 1st, and the first class is FREE!

We have 2 afternoon sections and a dedicated room for group piano lessons. The cost for Piano Shed is $32.50 per class.

No experience is required, we are using a multi-tiered curriculum that is great for complete beginners to intermediate students ages 7-12. One of the things we have learned over the past few years is the importance of playing music together!

In Piano Shed, the students will learn how to use musical structure to inform their improvisational direction, read charts, and learn chords and scales. There will also be opportunities to explore different keyboard sounds and use auxiliary percussion to accompany the jam. Space is limited, so sign up today by calling or emailing the front desk.

2023 Kids Summer Recital

Another great recital in the books! Bravo and congratulations to all of the excellent performers. We enjoyed sets from two of our teen bands, a variety of string instruments, voice students, and piano performers. As always, City Winery, provided a top-quality performance venue.

We look forward to the next opportunity to see our students play at the Fall Showcase!
