Piano Level 1 (Red to Green Books) (Ages 6 +)
Summer is 60 minutes
The Musikgarten Group Piano curriculum is the final step on the pathway from early childhood music to music literacy.  This program is designed to teach the children to begin to play the songs they've been hearing, singing, and dancing to throughout the years of early childhood.

During Piano I year, the children will be introduced to the keyboard.  Through the year, the children will become comfortable with D, C and G major 5 finger positions as well as d, c and e minor.  They will be introduced to the I and V7 (also I and v7) chords to accompany their songs. Transposing their repertoire to all known positions is encouraged as each new position is introduced.

This class follows a very sequential approach to building piano skills,understanding musical notation and setting up practice habits as set forth in the book, Music Makers: At the Keyboard, Book One (Red) and Book Two (Green).

Piano Level 1 Groups:  


For Piano I  children will receive Book One, 2 CDs/downloads and notation games plus a Parent Handbook. Class size limited and will close when limit is reached.  Further names will be placed on a waiting list.  As children progress through, Book 2 will be offered along with 2 CDs/downloadable music and notation games.

Summer 2024 - Those enrolled in Summer 2024 Level 1 will be asked to continue to a school year piano group.
Level 1 Tuesdays 2:30-3:30 pm, $150 + $55 materials = $205

Piano Level 2 (Purple to Blue Books) (Graduate of Level 1 )

In Piano Level 2, the children learn new hand positions that move out of the 5-finger position, new keys and notation games, how to write out familiar songs and will have many more opportunities to compose their own music.  Improvisation games and skills are developed further.  There are more songs to play by ear with more complex parts for the left hand.  Technique exercises will eventually lead to more fluid playing.
The student will work with compositions by many famous composers.  Pieces written by Bach, Haydn, Mozart, Schumann, Dvorak and MacDowell are included, some for drumming or dancing, some to explore dynamics and tempi, and some for harmonic analysis.  

Materials include the keyboard book, 2 CDs and notation games.

Pre-requisite Piano Level I.


 



Piano Level 3 (Orange to Gold Books) (Graduate of Level 2)

Level 3 Includes Books 5 & 6 of the Musikgarten Music Makers at the Keyboard series.
 
By this time, students have learned to play many songs by ear and in multiple positions on the keyboard.  They have played the same pieces that young pianists from all over the world have studied.  Now they will encounter more music of Beethoven, Haydn, and Mozart and be introduced to Mouret and Bartok and play a piece by Ferdinand Beyer.
We continue to work on improvisation skills and prepare the student to make important decisions regarding improvised solos.
In Book 6, there are many new pieces with new challenges.  The child's aural skills combined with a knowledge of melody, harmony, and rhythm, are all called on to build competence in improvising on a 12-Bar Blues Progression.  The understanding of music notation will allow your child a chance to compose and write his/her very own blues compostion!


Home materials include books, CDs/downloadable music, and notation games.

Pre-requisite Level 2 (Books 3 & 4).
