Step into Piano - McPherson Elementary School


The current Tuesday and Thursday Classes have reached capacity. Please email  

We have opened a class on Thursdays at 3:30 - 4:00. 

With Step into Piano, we offer a group option for children to begin learning basic piano skills. Children will work with various tools to learn notes on the keyboard as well as the staff.  They will practice using rhythm and begin learning to read music. Each class will have keyboard time where children work directly on the instrument. The benefit to this program is children learn basic piano skills in a more affordable and fun group setting. They emerge better prepared for private lessons in piano as well as other instruments.

Step into Piano is held at McPherson school. Musical Chairs faculty will meet students in the auditorium at dismissal before proceeding to class or at Aftercare for later starting classes. After Step into Piano, students can be picked up by caregivers or return to aftercare.

Students are expected to follow instructions from the teacher and be respectful at all times. Should discipline be an issue we will first reach out to parents. If a problem continues we may regretfully ask students to forfeit the remainder of the session to ensure quality of instruction for all students. 

A minimum of 4 students is required to run the class. Classes will be capped at 6 students.

Registration Deadline is September 1st
