For more than 40 years, Lakeland Christian School has offered our students private piano lessons. What began with one teacher and 40 students has expanded to more than 250 students enrolled in the program.
Kindergarten and first grade students may participate in the piano lab program. In a group setting, the students learn the basics about playing the piano and reading music. The course is designed to help parents determine whether their child shows an interest in learning to play the piano before purchasing the instrument.
Students in second through twelfth grade may enroll in private piano lessons. Participation in this program is contingent upon having a piano or a full-size, weighted-key digital piano at home. In addition to learning to play the piano, students receive instruction in ear-training and written music theory.
Piano students are encouraged to use their musical gifts by playing for chapel programs, their churches, and other community events. They also have opportunities to participate in the Ridge Music Teachers Association events such as the Multiple Piano Festival, masterclasses, and Student Day. All piano lab and private lesson students perform in a spring recital.
