In this beginning piano course, learners listen to, copy, and invent their own music patterns, learn a song every week, and practice primer-level piano skills. Perfect for beginners 10 years old+, or those continuing from pre-primer levels

Class Experience

  • Students will learn about hearing, describing, and playing music through hands-on experience with the keyboard Students will get experience with basic ensemble playing, as we will sometimes learn duets as we all play together
0 - 1 hours per week outside of class
Frequency: available upon request
Feedback: available upon request
Details: Learners may want to review the song we learned during the week to help them build upon the skills we learn.
Students need some cleared space around the piano or keyboard in order to move to rhythms and music.
The ideal learning keyboard will have at least 60 keys and touch sensitive playing. Weighted keys and 60 or more notes is best, but not necessary for getting started. So if you have any sort of keyboard, join in and try it out!
Learners need Music Moves for Piano, Book 1 (yellow cover) 20$ at MusicMovesforPiano.com. You may join and 'try out' the class for one week before purchasing the book.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Students should have Zoom configured so that they can "Use Original Sound"--otherwise your learner's playing will be filtered out as background noise by Zoom.
