Keyboard lessons this fall?

I’m offering another session of affordable piano keyboard classes for children or adults. Whether you’re beginning or need to refresh your skills, now’s your chance to study music with group or private lessons.

Group lessons double as a way of introducing kids to an instrument as well as new potential friends, and are helpful in gaining approval or social status. Adults can seek out their passion for music. Learning piano helps anyone studying another instrument, and learning to play regularly in front of peers in your own age group can also reduce performance anxiety. Band and string players usually begin playing in a group context, so why not keyboardists? I did! And because a group approach is more recreational, it's especially appropriate for younger kids and older adults who don't have the dexterity to develop finer instrumental skills. And costing less than private instruction helps too!

A 10-week course of 45-minute weekly lessons will follow a sequential approach to building basic keyboard skills and understanding musical notation. The small classes of 3 – 8 students each will start on Saturday, September 19
th and Monday, September 21st in the Good Shepherd. The $200 fee (that’s only $20 a lesson!) includes instruction books and keyboards to play during the lesson, but each student will need their own keyboard to practice on.

If I don’t have at least 3 people to fill a class, or if you wish to study privately, I’m also offering 30-minute private lessons at a mutually convenient day and time. This 10-week block of private lessons is $300; or $30 a lesson. So whether you want group or private lessons, you can pick up a registration form in the rectory, or from Steven Vaughan after any Mass. But in order to have supplies ready for you, you need to be registered by September 15
