PianoPrep: Group Piano Classes for Ages 6-9

Learn piano with ATA today!

PianoPrep gives aspiring student musicians a creative outlet and is a fun way to learn to read music and build strong practice habits. Students begin playing in a small group class of four to eight students with ample opportunities for both group learning and individual support.

Using the Celebrate Piano method, classes:

  • build a solid technical foundation
  • cultivate creativity
  • develop the ability to perform confidently
  • encourage independent learning
  • establish musical literacy and rhythmic security
  • develop the ability to “hear what you see and see what you hear”
  • establish good practice skills
  • foster a love of music of all styles

An acoustic piano or a keyboard will be needed for practice at home.  A piano or a keyboard with 88 weighted, full size, and touch-sensitive (loud/soft) keys, and a an attached, stationary pedal is ideal. There are a limited number of smaller keyboards at ATA and one can be loaned to you if needed. If you require financial assistance, you can contact the office directly at .

Fee: $50 (includes mandatory mask) PLEASE PRE-REGISTER PRIOR TO FIRST REHEARSAL

Please note: Proof of COVID vaccination will be required due to the high-risk nature of group singing. Please email a photo or scan of your vaccination card to info@appletreearts.org, or bring it to the first rehearsal. 

We are also requiring all chorus members to wear a mask, which we will provide. It is a special vocal mask that allows for full facial and jaw movement without compromising aerosol containment.
