Learn to play music in a fun environment! Students will learn to play on the provided keyboards.

The class will emphasize keyboard training, chords, scales, harmony and rhythm. In addition, music history, ear training and sight reading will be included. The class will give you the opportunity to make music both individually and as part of a group.

Students will need a keyboard at home to practice on—or you can rent a keyboard. Every term we will study a classical composer’s biography and simple music by that composer as well as listening to a recording.

Textbooks:

  • Alfred’s Adult Piano Course by Williard A. Palmer
  • Fundamentals of Piano Theory by Keith Snell.

Books can be purchased from the teacher at the first class meeting.

Student Comments

I had taken piano lessons many years ago and wanted to return to playing. The Adult School Piano class emphasized the fundamentals and building skills step by step. I enjoyed every step. I also appreciated Kathy’s love of music and willingness to help every student at their individual level.
