Piano Classes


What are piano classes? Piano classes incorporate theory games, rhythm reading, note reading, and activities to promote coordination. It's the perfect format for students who want to see quick progress and learn new things! Keyboarding time at the piano is mixed in with classroom technology to create a piano experience that is full of fun and keeps students motivated to play. 

What age is piano classes for? Any school age child can enroll! Students aged 4 and up can join piano classes - each large class is divided into smaller groups according to the student's age/level of playing. Those students rotate through the various stations with each other. So, a 13 year old can enroll at the same class as a 4 year old, but of course they will not rotate with each other. This is our answer to a parents taxi service. Your children can be in the same class, even if they are different ages! Win-Win! (These classes are taught by multiple teachers to insure optimum learning occurs.)

What will students learn in piano classes? Note reading, rhythm reading, piano technique, ear training, keyboarding skills, self-confidence, discipline, teamwork in group situations and many other things that lead to great future music makers and humans!

Do we need a keyboard or piano at home to play? Students in piano classes need an instrument in order to play their pieces and exercises at home. Many students start on an entry level keyboard and upgrade to a more professional instrument as they progress. There are several options available at Nugent Music, located in the same building as NMA, and they have a trade-up/trade-in program specifically designed for our students!

What if we need to miss a class? We've got you covered! Simply look at the calendar and select another class time that works with your schedule and let your instructor know! We can also Zoom or Facetime you into your class during your regular time.
