Keyboard Kids provides a piano education in a fast-paced class setting for children ages 4 1/2 to 6. Piano class provides a format of theory games, fun sheets, and engaging music in groups of 4 students. The musical curriculum is specifically written for piano groups of young children.
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 identify and count rhythms as well as names of keys on the piano in a week long class.
Keyboard kids groups are organized after school. When 4 children can all come on the same day and time, then groups are formed.
Teacher: Dr. Justin Gray – Dr. Gray has taught Keyboard Kids Classes for many years. After a two year absence from the Gray School, we welcome him back as our Keyboard Kids teacher.
Tuition:$117 per week plus $10 for music book.

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.
