|“Fun Keys” keyboarding classes present popular piano teaching methods with catchy rhythms, melodies, and chord progressions that students love to practice. The class is divided into practice sessions, working on Essentials and performing with the Ensemble. Students discover the musical patterns and learn to intuit what’s coming next. They enjoy working at their own pace and playing in a group while building their confidence with each song. Ms. Carolyn teaches students how to practice with level arms and curved fingers while strengthening muscle memory playing the repeating patterns.|
