Little Pipers Recorder - Beginners

Kindergarten

One 40 minute class per week (child only)

Children love to play the recorder, which is perfect for the young hand and ideal as an early wind instrument. Group lessons introduce young children to the joy of making music with others while teaching basic musical concepts and note reading. Children learn at first by ear, then by reading independently. This class is excellent preparation for further instrumental study. Tuition includes a recorder.

Piano Together

Fours and fives

One 40 minute class per week (child only)

This small-group offering is designed for children preparing for private piano instruction. Class time is divided between learning the basics of technique at the piano and activities away from the piano that develop children's sensitivity to pitch, rhythm, and musical expression. Students play on acoustic pianos and participate in an end-of-course, in-class recital. Students completing one semester of this class may be invited into our Private Lesson Program or may be encouraged to continue for a second semester of Piano Together. Students should have a keyboard at home on which they can practice. A placement meeting is required for families wishing to register. To schedule a placement meeting, click here.

Please note: the last five minutes of class is for pack-up and students movement between classes.
