Let’s Play Piano! (HUB Station)

Let's Play Piano!

Let’s Play Piano! includes weekly 45-minute group classes that will kickstart your personal piano journey. Each week will feature engaging activities centered on movement, listening, instrument play, singing, and games that will all lead back to the piano. We’ll delve into musical topics like rhythmic patterns, high vs. low sounds, composing melodies, the musical alphabet, piano finger numbers, and more! Along the way, students will experience the basics of healthy piano technique, develop listening skills, build patience and perseverance, and have fun.
