"Providing students of all ages with the skills to enjoy music for a lifetime."

PIANO LESSONS FOR CHILDREN AND ADULTS

Choose from group piano lab classes for beginners, private piano lessons for all levels, and add a Star Power Band for the ultimate music making opportunity.

Researchers agree that learning to play an instrument improves test scores, helps students with higher math achievement, builds self confidence, improves coordination and problem-solving, increases fine motor development and much more – including fostering the basic intrinsic value of developing a love and joy for the arts and music.

Performances are available for each level of study.

PLUS: Join our Practice Club with weekly prizes and chances to win a local area gift certificate twice each year.

PIANO LAB CLASSES

Piano for Little Folks – 4 and 5 year olds (Pre-K, Kinder)
Elementary Piano Lab – 1st through 5th graders

These are introductory piano classes for beginners with up to six students in each class. We teach a notation-based program, focusing on reading music and rhythms, technique, ensembles, and music theory activities. Since the classes are designed for students to progress at their own pace, the teacher helps each student individually on the full-size digital pianos for a small portion of the class during headphone time, and we also play together in ensemble (great for building listening skills and steady rhythm). Parent Performance Days are scheduled throughout the year, and the teacher will assess the student’s progress and recommend private piano lessons at the appropriate time. Students should have a keyboard or piano at home to practice weekly assignments.

Piano Lab Basic Class Activities: 

55 Minute Class, 5 Minutes Parent Time Class Materials: Piano Song Book, Music Theory Workbook.

  • Individual Learning And Assignments (Headphones)
  • Table Activities (Theory Workbooks)
  • Ensemble Playing (Review Songs, Listening, Steady Beat)
  • Games (Flashcards, Marker Board, Rhythm Clapping And Counting)
  • Parent Questions And Assignment Clarification

Classes are designed for students to progress at their own pace. Students receive supplementary books during the year when they are ready to move ahead.

STAR POWER BAND SERIES PLAY PIANO EACH WEEK WITH YOUR BAND!

60 Minute Weekly Band Rehearsal

The Star Power Band Series at the Frisco School of Music is our best value, and a very unique and popular series. Students have their regular private piano lesson each week, plus attend a one-hour Star Power Band Class each week as well.

Star Power Bands are for beginners through advancing players on all instruments. Learning to play together as a team, mastering your part, putting it all together as a stage performance, learning about basic styles and forms is covered each week. Basic music theory concepts are also taught using examples from the songs the bands are playing. Students move ahead in their skill levels at their own pace, and the teacher assigns parts appropriate for each band member. Rock 'n Roll (classic and contemporary) and familiar classics.

Star Power Band Series students participate in all school activities including Shows, Concerts, Coffee Houses, Local Venues, Theory Test, Achievement Graduations, and more. Bands choose their Band Name and brand, and have their picture in the program booklet and posted at the School.
