Keyboard Lab

Keyboard Lab is a course designed for both middle & high school students to explore the piano in fun, and interactive ways. The classroom is set up to give each student access to their own keyboard, allowing the opportunity for individual practice and exploration. Due to the group nature of the class, students will also have the chance to work with and gain inspiration from others, engaging in various ensemble-driven activities. This course aims to provide students with a solid musical foundation while also tapping into their sense of creativity through compositional and improvisatory outlets.
