Foundations Group Class
6 Weeks to a
Our Foundations Group Class is for beginners in the first 3 years of their playing. For 1 hour each week, students will build and establish the important musical foundations needed to enjoy playing.
Courses are kept in small groups, so your child experiences an individualized instruction while still experiencing the benefits of a group program.
Students will learn to read with ease while playing many known songs in a variety of keys and time signatures. Every student will have weekly playing opportunities as well as a final online recital open to all family and friends!
