This class is taught by certified member of the Oregon Music Teachers Association, Tom Sandahl.  He is one of the very finest teachers in town for children(and adults!) and we are so excited to have him at the school!

He will start with the anatomy of the instrument, understanding the notes on the keyboard, and learning a few basic meldoies and chords, and then get kids playing and singing fun and easy songs from from classics to current.  This not only builds their confidence and self-esteem, but will bring them much joy to play music with others and also for themselves.  Also, a greater appreciation for music from old to new.  They will learn how to build easy triad chords on the left hand and play a melody on the right hand to play fun and satisfying arrangements of popular tunes.

Basic note reading will be introduced at a very friendly pace. The focus of the learning will be by ear, memory and visualization of the keyboard.

A special focus on piano techniques, fingerings, and rhythmic mastery will be reinforced by Tom.  He will demonstrate proper practice techniques thoroughly.  It is very important to develop good habits at a young age as to avoid future injuries from poor technique. 

These are small group classes.  We cap them at 10 students per class.  This allows for high quality instruction from our experienced faculty.  


This class runs every Tuesday from 10/2 thru 11/6, 3:30-4:20pm
