Description of piano Classes:
This group piano class will meet once weekly for an hour. Led by a Kodaly-certified music educator, this course uses a fun and exciting approach to music literacy and piano instruction. We learn folk songs, play games, and play the songs we sing on the piano. We also use the Piano Safari books for a hybrid rote/ reading approach.
Course Instructor: Melissa Surman
Required Course Materials: all classes require the purchase of books as determined by the instructor
Cost: $20 per week of each month paid at the first class of each month

There are two recital opportunities a year for students of Gloria Music Studio. One occurs at the end of the fall semester, which usually features Christmas music and classic repertoire. The other takes place at the end of the spring semester. These performances are a fun time for students to meet one another and showcase their accomplishments. Students are strongly encouraged to participate, although it is not required.
