Keys to Musicianship

Ages: 13 - 18
Session Length: 10 Weeks
Skill Level: Advanced Beginner to Intermediate


Playing the piano is a foundational skill that is highly recommended for those looking to pursue advanced musical training. If your teen is passionate about music, considering a career, or wants to step up their game, this is the place to start!

In collaboration with Piano Cleveland, this new ten-week course will teach students the basics of keyboard technique while increasing their skills in notation, theory, and musical creativity. Topics will include finger technique, reading notation on the grand staff, crossover fingering, scales, and key signatures.

This course is recommended for students who are have some familiarity with music and able to read at least some music on the grand staff. The curriculum does pick up rather quickly, so foundational experience will be beneficial.

Students who do not have access to a piano or keyboard are able to borrow a digital keyboard for free from Piano Cleveland to use while enrolled in this course.

This class will not be offered in Spring 2023.
