Bach to Rock Kids N Keys Class
Kids n Keys introduces children to the fundamentals of music and piano playing in a fun group-setting. In three 8-lesson segments students will:
Be Inspired: We believe that exposing students to great music and high-quality performances plays an important role in inspiring musical accomplishments. Each Kids n Keys class includes critical listening activities. Our goal is for our students to leave class each week feeling excited about music.
Sight-read: We expect all of our students to learn to read music. The ability to sight-read opens doors to an entire world of music.
Play by ear: Traditional piano instruction, in most cases, ignores this important skill. To be a well-rounded musician and, more importantly, to be able to spontaneously create music with other musicians as a group, music students must be able to play what they hear. Bach To Rock incorporates many concepts from the famous Suzuki method to accomplish this goal.
Play as a group: Studying music within a group provides a unique opportunity for young musicians to begin to develop the skill of playing music with their peers. This is highly motivating because it closely resembles a “team” atmosphere and it is a social experience.
Bach To Rock is the Music School for students of all ages. B2R’s unique method is based on the knowledge that students learn best when they join together to play the music they like the most. That’s why we use special arrangements of the music of our time and combine individual lessons with band instruction. Weekly “jam sessions” lead to Battles of the Bands and recording sessions in B2R Studios, our own professional recording facilities. B2R also holds regularly scheduled public concerts that encourage students to become seasoned performers. These creative group activities foster teamwork, build self-esteem and motivate students to perfect their musicianship through independent practice.
