Piano Labs

Piano Lessons in Grand Rapids

Piano Labs

These are Introductory Piano Classes for beginners that help students progress at their own pace and move through their books 20-50% faster than any other method.

Students enjoy the one hour group sessions, and are motivated by the practice assistance they are able to utilize at home with the course app and a Chromebook.

Since these classes are designed for students to progress at their own pace, the teacher assists each student individually on full-size digital keyboards utilizing headphones and an app for a 30-minute assessment portion of the class.

The 2nd half of class is spent on discovery (theory, technique, improvisation, musicianship, etc).

The teacher will assess the student’s progress and recommend private piano lessons at the appropriate time.

NOTE: Students need a full-sized keyboard or piano at home to practice weekly assignments.

Basic Class Activities:

  • 55 Minute class
  • 5 Minutes Parent Time
  • Piano Lesson Book & Discovery Book
  • Individual learning, assignments, and assessment at student’s level
  • Discovery period for theory, technique, improvisation & more
  • Review songs in books with accompaniment and headphones
  • Parent questions and assignment clarification

A parent “Informance” day will be held on the 6th week.  The teacher will assess the student’s progress and recommend private guitar lessons at the appropriate time.

Ukulele Labs

Ukulele Lessons in Grand Rapids

Ukulele Labs

With a gentle, mellow tone and small, affordable size, there’s a reason ukulele is a popular instrument today.  Sign up for this summer fun class, and our instructor will have you strumming to some favorite tunes by the end of the 6 weeks. A perfect instrument for young beginners, ukulele is also considered the gateway to guitar as students can easily transition to guitar when they are ready.

These ukulele lab classes are for beginners with up to six students in each class. Since the classes are designed for students to progress at their own pace, the teacher will help each student individually for a small portion of the class, and students will also play together in ensemble (great for building listening skills and steady rhythm). The teacher will assess the student’s progress and recommend private ukulele lessons or guitar at the appropriate time.

Note: Students bring their “soprano” size ukulele to class.
