Kiddy Keys, music class for Preschoolers

What is Kiddy Keys?

Kiddy Keys is a modern and engaging approach to teaching piano skills and music concepts to preschool children ages 2½ to 5.

What Kiddy Keys IS: What Kiddy Keys is NOT:
Kiddy Keys IS a weekly class for children age 2½ to 5 who love music. Kiddy Keys is NOT a weekly one-on-one traditional music lesson.
Kiddy Keys IS piano-focused and gives children skills that prepare them for formal music lessons should they be interested when they get older. Kiddy Keys is NOT exclusively for children who will go on to study piano.
Kiddy Keys IS a program that offers your child a chance to play at a piano keyboard each week. Kiddy Keys does NOT expect practice time at home or that you even own a piano or keyboard.
Kiddy Keys IS aware that preschool children learn through play, the classes are designed to appeal to a child's natural sense of creativity and fun. Kiddy Keys is NOT going to have your four-year-old playing Mozart sonatas. However, they will learn about Mozart and other great composers.
Kiddy Keys IS thinking about your child as a whole andworks to include important, age-appropriate life lessons like sharing, being polite and taking turns. Kiddy Keys does NOT present information in one form. Children learn in different ways, so Kiddy Keys incorporates activities for aural, visual, and kinesthetic learners.
