Piano is open to any student, grade six through twelve, who has reached at least intermediate level (i.e., able to play a Bach 2-part Invention or a Clementi Sonatina). Piano students work in a positive and nurturing environment that focuses on improving technical skills, interpretation, and musical ability. Each student will receive a private lesson every other day. There will be one-and-a-half to two hours of individual practice time scheduled each day as part of the daily piano class schedule. Students should be prepared to make full use of the allotted practice time. Other class activities include discussion of theory, rhythm, sight-reading, and music history. There will also be opportunities for ensemble playing, classroom performance and outside performance. Students should be prepared to work on a solo or duet that will be performed in the final show.
