Students engage in creative keyboard exploration, learning basic music and keyboard skills, theory, ensemble playing, and composition. Students should be prepared to practice at least 20 minutes per day, and complete additional written activities with adult help at home.

A piano or 61-note touch sensitive keyboard with sustain pedal is required for home practice.
