GROUP PIANO LESSONS FOR KIDS IN MONMOUTH COUNTY, NJ
Kids are comfortable learning in a group environment. At this age, most activities including school, sports and dance are taught in collaborative groups.
The best way to be engaged in any activity is to share it with others. By learning in a group, you are joining a community of musicians. You make friends, share the joy of making music together, and peer teach each other. Within a group, students make friends with like-minded musicians and forge deep, long lasting relationships.
Group Piano is a 45 minute weekly class. Sessions run continuously through the year. Kids may stay enrolled as long as they'd like to continue building on their skills until moving up to a higher level class, or to private lessons.
$125 a month (Four 45 Minute Classes a month)
BENEFITS OF GROUP PIANO LESSONS:
Group piano means a lot than more than one student learning at a time. At Lincroft Music we believe in collaborative learning - learning together!
Learning together is both fun and beneficial to young learners and peer motivation is a huge factor in the success of collaborative learning.
In a group setting students can be inspired by listening and watching the achievements of their friends and trying to emulate their success, they are able to help each other if they get stuck and students are able to provide and learn from the feedback of their classmates.
Differentiation is built into all workbooks, with four challenge levels available for each piece so that children are able to access the music at a level they feel comfortable. We find that this approach encourages students to try the next challenge, because they have seen one of their friends having a go.
CREATIVITY IN LEARNING MUSIC
We're turning learning into a whirlwind of excitement with creative games and activities that'll have your kids hooked from the first note. Picture them playing musical hide-and-seek, where they learn to identify notes and scales by following hidden melodies. Or imagine them crafting their own musical stories through interactive storytelling games that make piano playing an imaginative journey. From rhythm races to collaborative compositions, every lesson is a chance for them to explore, create, and uncover the magic of music in ways they never thought possible.
Our group lessons are a symphony of fun and education, where learning piano becomes an exhilarating quest. Through musical challenges and engaging activities, your kids will discover the world of music theory without even realizing it. They'll transform into rhythm detectives, deciphering beats and patterns, and groove their way through games that sneakily teach them about chords and melodies. With each playful activity, they'll develop an intuitive understanding of the piano, all while laughing, learning, and experiencing the joy of making music in a dynamic group setting.
LEARNING PIANO WITH ENSEMBLE PLAYING
Ensemble playing is inherently integral to collaborative group learning. The benefits of playing and performing in an ensemble are huge, with the most important being that it is fun.
Kids are comfortable learning in group environments and classes. As children, they learn in groups in school, dance class, sports and more. We find that kids are less stressed when starting piano with groups when starting music lessons for the first time. Group lessons are becoming increasingly popular for their ideal setting to motivate and inspire pupils
Playing together helps develop the whole musician with benefits including: Social and emotional well-being by sharing our activity with others; teamwork; attention to detail; maintaining an individual part; reinforcing the learning through playing; following a leader; sometimes being the leader; increased sense of pulse; the ability to keep going; and many more!
LEARNING PIANO THROUGH GAMES & ACTIVITIES
Games are a fun, engaging and interactive way of learning about music. In lessons we use a variety of games and activities away from the piano to reinforce learning and introduce new concepts. This ensures all learning styles are provided for and makes learning more secure for all.
Children should enjoy playing the piano and learning all about music. The group setting really helps to ensure that our lessons are enjoyable, as does our curriculum (which includes games, singing and a lot of creativity!)
Singing plays a key role in our lessons and in learning how to play the piano. Before learning to play a piece we will always sing it with lyrics, finger numbers and note-names to ensure students are internalising the melody.
Creativity is extremely important within our method. We always include some composing and improvising in our workbooks, and the very nature of our pieces illustrating a story or topic is in itself a creative pursuit.
START PIANO LESSONS AT A YOUNGER AGE
Many young children are simply not ready for the intensity of individual, one to one music lessons which traditionally follow a linear method. Learning in groups allows young children to explore and experiment with music in a low intensive format.
Our lessons are jam-packed with a variety of fun musical activities designed to cater for all learning styles, and our innovative cyclical curriculum allows young learners the opportunity to learn at their own pace.
We don’t agree with methods that are linear in nature and throw all learning points at children at once, so we break them up – starting with how to find the notes of the keyboard, reading rhythms and more general musicianship skills, such as learning to describe music using musical vocabulary
We deliver a pioneering curriculum which covers not only the foundations of piano playing but also general musicianship, listening skills, composition and improvisation
