Keyboard Kids Classes provides a piano education in a fast-paced class setting for children ages 4 to 7. Piano class provides a format of theory games, fun sheets, and engaging music in groups of 3 to 6 students. The musical curriculum is specifically written for piano groups ages 4-7.
It is fun to begin piano lessons with new piano friends. Keyboard kids focuses on piano while building a foundation in music which can later be translated to any instrument as the child matures. Students learn to correctly count rhythms, names of keys on the piano, as well as the fundamentals of staff note reading.
Students progress over several years through a graduated course of staff note reading which ultimately creates musical independence. Various class piano curriculums are used depending on the age and ability of each class. Carpool with a friend and enjoy the fun of learning to play the piano together.

In 2010, he was invited to perform with the Utica Symphony Orchestra by conductor Charles Schneider. During his time at Eastman, he has collaborated with many different musicians and conductors.
As a soloist and teacher, German has won numerous prizes throughout his studies. He

Ligia Pucci started her piano studies at age fourteen in Sāo Paulo, Brazil.

Gray School is also pleased to offer:
ESPK (ERGONOMICALLY SCALED PIANO KEYBOARD)
Most on-campus individual piano lessons are taught on Steinway or Boston grand pianos with conventional keyboards. One of our teachers can also teach with a special 7/8 scale keyboard called Ergonomically Scaled Piano Keyboard (ESPK) that has narrower keys than a conventional keyboard. As we wear shoes or clothes that fit to our body size, it is more natural for smaller hands to play on smaller keys, so young students often enjoy playing on ESPK.
