Group Piano for ages 6-8 – Primer Level
The Primer Level introduces the keyboard, note values, and the grand staff. Students play in Middle C Position and C Position through recognition of steps and skips, and learn letter names independent of finger number. Musicianship is built through the use of dynamics and coloristic experimentation with the pedal.
In this class, a small group of students will go through the initial part of this level together in a room with multiple pianos. Time is spent at the main table, learning concepts, and the white board, drilling the concepts and at the pianos, playing pieces and learning technique. Each student is at their own piano and they all play in unison. This builds great rhythmic coordination and listening skills!
Caregivers are welcome, but not required, to attend and assist their children. A piano or a digital keyboard is required to have at home for daily practice for this course. If a keyboard is chosen, it must have 88 keys, a pedal, a keyboard stand, a piano bench or adjustable stool, and a stand to hold the music. Minimum practice requirements are 15 minutes per day, 5 days per week.
