The piano is a great first instrument to start a child's musical experience. Because the piano is so versatile, from the very first lesson children are able to play tunes they know and can spend many rewarding years studying it and continue to grow in their ability to play more complex pieces with beauty and skill.
When learning to play the piano young children are developing their brains. Studies show that children who learn to play a musical instrument do better at school in Math, Science and English.
The Piano Programs at Hope Performing Arts Centre cater for children as young as 3 to adults of any age. Each program has been specifically designed to be age-appropriate and a joyful experience for the learner.
