Embark on a Piano Journey This Summer!

Head to the keys this summer with our popular Piano Explorers Camp—a fun, interactive approach to learning piano and developing musicianship skills. Our engaging curriculum will have students reading and playing music in no time. Both beginner level and intermediate level students will learn short musical pieces and discover the joy of playing music with fellow young maestros in a piano ensemble.

The Piano Explorers curriculum is a fun approach to learning the piano that engages movement, ear-training games and improvisation, and is designed to improve students’ tracking, hand-eye coordination and listening skills. Students who are already taking private lessons work together to perform independent arrangements of popular songs. 

In addition to a daily piano class, each day is packed with fun activities such as music and movement, world drumming, singing songs, story time, creating art and lots of playtime outdoors!
