Beginning Piano Class

Have you ever wanted to play the piano? The Simply Music piano method will get you playing great sounding music from your very first lessons! Simply Music is a playing-based (as opposed to reading-based) method that puts the emphasis on playing. We start by finding the patterns and shapes found naturally in music. This gets you playing. Then we apply those same patterns and shapes to the "theory" of music. Come try it out for yourself!
