This class is the perfect, smart piano class, with so many additional perks! 

Piano is the one instrument that teaches everything one needs to know to learn any other instrument. This is the most important foundational instrument for all musicians.

As a bonus, your child will also be introduced to the ukulele, a small stringed instrument, a wise first step before learning guitar or violin. This teaches children another coordination skill, and a different music notation system.

MINI PIANO PLUS for children ages 4 – 5 years old is a pressure-free class which prepares children with the skills they will need to succeed in piano first, along with the added bonus of ukulele- prep, offering a window into future guitar or string instrument instruction. Here, your child will begin the process of playing the piano, while reading music, notes and rhythms, on several other bonus instruments. These lucky students are receiving a rich, well-rounded experience, with the piano as the primary, central focal point.
