Introducing a new class for all ages:
PIANO BASICS FOR EVERYONE
This course is designed to offer a thorough introduction to the piano. A brief history of the piano and overview of the design of the clavichord pianos will begin the course. Elements of pitch, rhythm, and basic music theory will be covered throughout the course intertwined with more in-depth studies of correct fingering of basic scales, arpeggios, and basic repertoire. An emphasis will be placed on musicality, attained by encouraging students to hear the desired sound before playing it on the piano.
