KEYBOARD Adventures!

Keyboard Adventures is an introductory piano method for groups of young beginners, ages 5-6-7, and is an exciting, new alternative to private piano instruction. Lessons present a balance of singing, moving, drumming, writing, and reading activities-together with playing at the keyboard. Keyboard Adventuresis carefully planned and sequenced to meet the developmental needs of the students. The small group of children will learn a collection of songs with associated activities. Singing will encourage tonal development as well as establish a keyboard repertoire. Moving and drumming activities will establish the body as a rhythmic instrument. Keyboard activities will establish technique, repertoire, and application of a musical personality.

A semester of Keyboard Adventures consists of 9 weekly 60-minute group lessons.

Fall Semester begins on Thursday Sept. 16th.

Keyboard Adventures is offered at the GrandStaff Piano Studio in Quakertown, Pa. (215-536-5147) on Thursday evening from 5 to 6 PM.
