Presto Let's Play Music Piano Classes
for Beginners 7 - 12 Years
What to Expect
Presto teaches so much more than piano! We teach COMPLETE musicianship: vocal training, ear training, sight reading, music theory, rhythm, music history, proper piano technique, and we do it in a fun, snappy style that tweens love! Most likely, those students who already have had a year or so of piano haven't studied all areas of music. In fact, they most likely have only dabbled a little in rhythm, have some note reading skills, and developed some finger strength. We include an optional "challenge" section written into the Presto curriculum to satisfy the appetite of hard-working students and that of students who already have finger dexterity built from previous piano lessons.
Because we make learning piano FUN!
About the Class
The typical beginning piano student is 7-9 years old. Developmentally, it is not appropriate (nor, let's face it, very fun...) to have this child sitting on a bench for 30-minutes with an adult pointing at minuscule symbols in a book. Private lessons are typically low energy and fail to provide a stimulating and energetic experience.
In Presto classes, kids learn from and inspire each other all while having a great time. Kids in Presto want to come to lessons!
In Presto, our students learn music history, classical music, sight singing, ear training and music theory. We are building complete musicians, rather than just pianists, so our students can accompany themselves, sing in harmony, transpose, compose, and excel in any other music endeavor. *Presto II classes are only open to graduates of Presto I*
