Adult Group Piano Class
A new group piano class for adult beginners will be offered on
Wednesdays from 1:00-1:50pm meeting weekly. The 6-week
introductory class will take place in a digital group piano lab,
enabling students to hear only their piano and the instructor's
piano, fostering a relaxed, stress-free learning environment.
The class covers basic principles of music reading and keyboard
skills. No music background is assumed or required, and
participants will develop keyboard skills that will enable them
to play for their own pleasure. It is not necessary to own a
piano to enroll, as students can practice at SU.
