Can You Teach Me To Play Piano?

My students need easy-to-use keyboards so that they can become familiar with melody and harmony construction and can learn some piano skills.

My Students

My school holds Title I status with a large transient population. The average attendance is between 600 and 700 students from Pre-K to fifth grade. We are close to a large metropolitan area but these talented children have not been exposed to much outside their small world. I love to see their faces light up when they learn something new or find out that they are good at something they love. Who knows? That might turn out to be music!

My Project

So many of my students have been asking for me to teach them to play the piano. We talk in class about trying new things when they're young so that they can find out what they like and what they're good at. I tell them that if those two things coincide, then they may have found their "thing."

So many research studies have shown positive effects on the brains of children who play instruments.

With the requested keyboards, a student can learn almost all of the elements of music through experience, rather than just reading about them or listening to them. This stays with them for a lifetime.
