Class Piano Age Descriptions
Different ages learn differently and at different speeds. Lessons materials and amount of semesters needed to prepare for level 1 are reflected in these descriptions. Individual practice at home is needed for improvement and to stay at the same learning pace as the rest of the class.

Kindergarten-1st Grade
At the end of the three semesters (recommended: three adjacent seasons), the child will be ready for partner or individual lessons at level 1.

2nd-3rd Grade
At the end of the two semesters (recommended: two adjacent seasons), the child will be ready for partner or individual lessons at level 1.

3rd-4th Grade
At the end of the two semesters (recommended: two adjacent seasons), the child will be ready for partner or individual lessons at level 1.

5th-6th Grade
Older beginners move at a faster pace than younger beginners. Groups of students will master the primary skills in one semester and will be ready to move on to partner or individual lessons by the end of the twelve weeks.

7th Grade and Beyond
Class piano is available for these ages to those who request and pace is subject to group age and goals.
