Step the Beat Music Fundamentals


This summer we will combine the Step the Beat and Step Into Piano classes for a special class. Step the Beat is an intro to music course designed for our youngest budding musicians who are preschool ages 3-5. Step into Piano is phase II in our early childhood music program. Ideally, children will have completed a year or two of Step the Beat prior to entering Step into Piano, but this is not required.  With Step into Piano we offer a group option for children to begin learning basic piano skills.  We introduce basic music concepts in a fun and interactive manner utilizing a modified approach of Hungarian educator Zoltan Kodaly.  The Kodaly method is widely accepted worldwide and uses age appropriate folk songs, rhythm symbols, movement and singing to cover four main areas of focus:

**  Note Reading  **  Rhythm Essentials  **  Ear Training **  Sight Reading **

Session runs June 18th - August 13th      (no class on July 3) 

There are two class tuition package options

- 8 weeks of class for $240.00  

- 6 weeks of class for $180.00 (we ask that you specify which dates you'll be present)

Classes are limited to 10 children. 

  • Preschool Ages
  • Wednesdays:  10:00 - 11:00 Note the summer class duration will be a full hour.
  • Musical Chairs Studio 2124 W. Lawrence Ave.

Additional Sessions can be added based on demand.  If these times don't work for you, let us know the age of your child(ren) and your preferred days / times.

Additional classes are available based on interest and held at Musical Chairs Studio. A minimum of 4 students is required to create a new class.  Parents are welcome to collaborate with friends for a day and time that works for you and we'll provide the instructor.
