Group Piano Lessons
A Group Piano Class is an exciting introduction to piano and music skills for beginning level music students. The goal of the course is not only to develop a solid musical foundation in piano, but most importantly to instill in the student a genuine love and appreciation for music. A group atmosphere is often more beneficial and enjoyable for beginning level students because they are motivated by their peers, but are also allowed to progress at their own rate. Basic piano skills, such as proper hand positions, posture, note reading, and technique, will be taught. Students will learn how to play age appropriate music step by step. They will learn to listen to each other while playing, developing of a better sense of rhythm and tempo.

No previous experience is required. Keyboards for the class practice will be provided.
If you don`t have a keyboard at home, you can rent one from the Ivy Music for an additional fee of $70 for the whole 12-week period.

Guitar Lessons
This class is an introduction to guitar playing. We will begin by studying both the names of the notes on each string and the basic open position chords. Next, we will focus on the art of strumming and then apply this core knowledge to create basic accompaniments for a wide variety of popular tunes. Basic improvisation and use of the capo are also covered. This class is suitable for the absolute beginner. Instruments will be provided.

Ukelele Lessons
Even if you’ve never played the ukulele before, you will be picking and strumming along with a collection of ten popular Beatles songs by the end of this six-week course.Beginning with just one simple basic chord, each week we will progressively add more chords, and build on our knowledge to learn: “Within You, Without You”, “Eleanor Rigby”, “Tomorrow Never Knows”, “Ob-La-Di Ob-La-Da”, “Love Me Do”, “You’ve Got To Hide Your Love Away”, “Let It Be”, “Glass Onion”, “Something”, and “While My Guitar Gently Weeps”. Please provide your own soprano or concert ukulele. A snark-type tuner is recommended, but not required. Ages 55 and up. This class is taught by Berklee Online Interdisciplinary Music Studies Major, Steve Marchena.
