YOUNG CHILD CLASSES

KEY DISCOVERIES (Piano-Preparatory)

This is the place to start for a beautiful piano (or any other instrument for that matter) foundation. Children learn music theory, composers and music history, rhythm, playing an instrument, following a conductor, performing in ensembles, active listening skills, and reading and writing music. They get exposure to multicultural music from around the world and most importantly gain a strong love for music. Year 1 focuses on the glockenspiel. Year 2 includes the dulcimer and the recorder. Both years include piano highlight elements to prepare them for piano lessons (since we are pretty excited about piano here at The Hole Note!).

  • AGES for KEY DISCOVERIES YEAR 2: 1st Grade
  • CLASS LENGTH: 1 hour (parents join for last 15 minutes of each class)
