Adult Group Piano

Adult Group Piano offers students the opportunity to learn piano and read music in an enjoyable and sociable setting.

Tuition is $150 for one 15-week semester or $225* for two semesters (fall 2013 and spring 2014 semesters).

  • Adult Group Piano I
    Class focus is for adults with little or no previous experience playing piano, which provides an introduction to the fundamentals of piano technique and music theory.  In a hands-on piano lab group setting, students will be introduced to keyboard orientation, music reading, and notation.

  • Adult Group Piano II
    A continuation from Beginning Adult Group Piano I.
    Pre-requisite: one semester of CMS-D group piano and the ability to read music. 
  • Adult Group Piano III
    A continuation from Beginning Adult Group Piano II.
    Pre-requisite: two semesters of CMS-D group piano and the ability to read music. 
  • Adult Group Piano IV: Learning to Play Popular Music
    Class focus is on learning to quickly play popular songs and standards on the piano utilizing chords. 
    Pre-requisite is two semesters of CMS-D group piano. Students must have a basic ability to read music.
  • Buddy Lessons (limited to two adult students)
    Buddy Lessons are a great way to make music lessons more affordable.  They are convenient for students who struggle to fit lessons into their weekly schedules, and are ideal for new students who want to explore an instrument.  The buddy lesson options are: two students with the same teacher at the same time, or two students with eight alternating, biweekly individual lessons with the same teacher.  Please contact the CMS-D Registrar for more information.
  • Private Lessons – one on one lesson with student and instructor.  Please contact the CMS-D Registrar for more information.

    Note: A minimum of 4 lessons must be purchased.  All lessons scheduled must be paid in advance. Financial assistance is not available for private lessons. See CMS-D Registrar for scheduling information.

Private and Buddy lessons rates:

  • $25 for 30 minutes
  • $37.50 for 45 minutes
  • $50 for 60 minutes
