School-age Children

Harmony Road - ages 4½–6

The Young Musician - ages 6–8

Keyboard Prep - ages 8–12

Students are taught with age-appropriate strategies and have the same learning goals.

In all three learning tracts, students develop “inner hearing” and learn music through a combination of effective and enjoyable activities that include rhythm and movement, solfege and expressive singing, and ear training. They gain experience in solo and ensemble keyboard playing and develop an understanding of harmony and applied theory. In addition to learning to read, write and play music, they are introduced to improvising, composing and transposing. Parents participate in class time and are guided in follow-up activities.

Classes meet 55 minutes weekly for 20-week terms.
The Harmony Road and Young Musician meet for four semesters.
Keyboard Prep meets for three.

The Music in Me & More Music in Me

The Music in Me and More Music in Me courses were developed for preschoolers, ages 3 - 5. Students experience music physically and develop musical understanding, pitch and rhythm awareness through singing, rhythm, movement, ear training and keyboard activities. They are introduced to music reading and writing and learn to track notes on the piano but are not taught to play at this age. Parents participate in class time and are guided in follow-up activities. Music in Me enrollment is open throughout the semester; More Music in Me is enrollment is open through week eight.

Classes meet 45 minutes weekly for 16-week terms.

Keyboard Musician

Designed for graduates of Harmony Road, Young Musician and Keyboard Prep courses, Keyboard Musician uses many of the same activities as the beginning courses. Students advance their piano playing and music reading and writing skills while expanding their knowledge of theory, composition and improvisation. Graduates of this four-semester course are encouraged to continue their piano study in group classes. Parents participate in class time and are guided in follow-up activities. This is a four-semester program.

Classes meet 55 minutes weekly for 20-week terms.

Piano Classes

Our group piano classes begin at the intermediate level. Students learn and perfect technical skills and continue to study theory, arranging and composition. They learn selections of Baroque, Classical, Romantic, Modern and Contemporary music—playing both solos and duets. They have the opportunity to perform at recitals each year and participate in Oregon Federated Music Clubs’ annual Festival. Students can continue their study at Harmony Road through high school.

Each of us has two native languages.
Both are learned early...both stay with us for a lifetime.
One is music. This is why a music education is important
