Beginning Piano Class is a ½ credit music elective class for students in grades 9-12. This is a collaborative-based class meaning the majority of the class will be devoted to group collaboration and learning. The class will be teacher-centered with a focus on playing simple piano melodies, scales, and chords while reading music notation. The goal of this course will be to introduce the piano to beginners and to develop a solid foundation of playing piano that the students may study and practice with at home. Piano Class will meet every day for one semester.
