Online Beginner Lessons for Parent and Child

29 weekly 30-minute private online lessons*
2 repertoire classes and 2 recitals

This two-semester online program is for young students (ages 5-7) and a parent/caregiver. It is designed for those in the first year of study who need to take lessons remotely from home. A parent or caregiver participates in the lessons to encourage the young learner, facilitate the online interaction between teacher and student, and to better aid home practice. Lessons will include the study of music fundamentals, early piano skills, movement activities, and learning games. Students, if ready, can participate in two pre-recital repertoire classes and two semester recitals. Enrollment is for the duration of the academic year, September through early May. 

Students in their second year of study may also enroll in this program. The Young Musician Program (45-minute lesson) is encouraged for students who are older and/or more independent. A change of program into Young Musician can be made at any time.
