Group Piano Lessons

Years ago, Ms. Libby noticed a need for age-appropriate piano lessons for preschool-age children. Although there are plenty of talented piano teachers available, there wasn't a play-based class that catered to the way very young children learn. With Ms. Libby's years of experience teaching early-childhood education and her background in music, she decided to provide a fun "starter pack" step-up program of group piano lessons that teach children the basic concepts of piano and prepares them for private lessons. Each step: (Beginner Piano, Kinder Piano and Big Kid Piano), helps transition very young children from learning through mostly games and preschool-related activities to finally sitting at a large sized keyboard for most of the lesson. After completing even one of the levels, he or she will be in a better position to start one-on-one private lessons!

Alternatively, perhaps your child is an athlete and has shown interest in an instrument but ongoing private lessons is too much of a commitment? Ms. Libby's group sessions offer an opportunity to give piano a try without a long (and expensive!) commitment. 

Ms. Libby will evaluate your child's learning level if she feels that they would benefit from a class level different from their age group. 

 Lessons are by sessions of 10-week increments, (except for the summer session, which is 6 weeks).
