Summer Piano Explorations Class

Piano illustration

This summer class is for students who want to master the skills they’ve already learned in piano team class, be more prepared for the next level of piano team class, or just keep up their piano learning momentum over the summer. Mr. Aron will use piano exercises, games, and other activities to reinforce material students have already learned in their Prep A or Prep B piano team classes. Summer Piano Explorations will not alter the Piano Team track the students currently are on (i.e. spring Prep A students will be on track for Prep B in the fall, spring Prep B students will continue in Level 1A in the fall, etc).

Aron lives to find creative ways to communicate his passion for music, its structure, history, and beauty.
