This preschool music program is a fun, private or duo piano lesson for children ages 3-5, with a broader goal of teaching the fundamentals of music. All lessons are 30 minutes per week. These lessons also utilize concepts and exercises from Dalcroze Eurhythmics and Kodaly, both methods renowned for developing musical ability in young children through movement, rhythm, and singing games. These lessons are especially good for the child who is not yet ready to sit through a private half-hour lesson, or for any child who really wants to start any musical instrument, but is not quite ready for the regular 1/2 hour private lesson.
The format for the lesson includes lots of varied activity and lots of fun, and provides a solid foundation for both traditional private piano lessons and/or another age-appropriate instrument. As the child progresses and his or her attention span increases, more and more time will be given to actual piano skills. These lessons can segue into private piano lessons or another age appropriate instrument.
