Lessons are structured in a 45 minute group lesson once a week. There are 3 to 6 children in a group. There is a keyboard with 61 keys for each student. Each student also plays the piano.
There are two other music teachers who are part of the piano studio. Robyn Fontenot and Rachel Johnson have both taught music in public schools using the Kodály method. They are highly qualified educators. We all follow the same lesson plans and offer a nurturing and fun environment for all our piano classes.
Beads are a fun way we keep attendance at the piano studio. This helps reinforce good habits by our students along with parents’ and grandparents’ dedication to getting students to lessons each week.
Beginning students reading the game song, "Plainsies, Clapsies" from PLAY AND PLAY piano book.
The Orange Julius music writing activity had students fill in the line and space note names to complete the words that made up the Orange Julius recipe. The students sipped and played afterwards.
Piano students took turns playing a requested Christmas Carol chosen by parents from the Christmas Carol Menu.
Our Menu for our Christmas Carol Cafe was a great success!
Refreshments were also on the menu during our Christmas performance.
