Experience this exciting and new recreational piano program for teens and adults. This unique course teaches the student practical keyboard skills in a relaxed small group setting. Highlights of Piano Street (required text) include learning the functional use of chords, note reading and ear training, improvisation and arranging, solo/ensemble playing and playing varied musical styles.The goal of this class is to hlep students enjoy music through learning to play 1950's doo-wop, in relaxed environment and at a beginner-friendly pace. Students will not be expected to know how to read music, nor will that be a requirement to complete the course. Upon completion, studens will be equipped with the tools to extend their learning of this genre beyond class. Musical concepts will be taught with a unique approach that combines aural training (playing by ear), diagrams and activities. By the end of this course, students will understand the structure of the typical Doo-Wop song, be able to improvise a song in the style of a typlical Doo-Wop song, and perform "In the Still of the Night" as a group. $10 required text available first class, payable by cash or check to instructor.
