Simply Music Piano - Creativity Foundation Workshop (Ages 8 and up)

(NEW!) Music & Creativity Workshop

The Music & Creativity Program is a breakthrough piano and keyboard method that looks at music in a totally new light. It has students of all ages improvising and playing great sounding blues, classical, contemporary and accompaniment pieces immediately - from their very first lessons.

The online, self-study version of this program is completely FREE! But if you want a little extra help, Piano Belloso Music Studio is offering a special 6-week beginner course this summer at the City of La Mirada Resource Center.

Parent attendance is required for students age 15 and under.

Youth Workshops

For beginner piano students ages 8-12, this class is tailored to children who have very little or no prior experience playing the piano.

Parental Attendance and Participation

A key difference between traditional piano lessons and the Simply Music Piano program is that the active participation of parents is not only encouraged and emphasized, but required.

For young children, this is very similar to "mommy-and-me" style of classes. However, the role of parental involvement goes a bit deeper. Parents who enroll their child in the Simply Music Workshop should expect to attend every class with their child, stay for the duration of the class, and actively participate in the lesson.

During the week, parents are responsible for assisting students with accessing their student home materials, establishing a regular practice routine, and assisting them with practice if necessary.

Parental Attendance and Participation

A key difference between traditional piano lessons and the Simply Music Piano program is that the active participation of parents is not only encouraged and emphasized, but required.

For older children, this may seem almost unnecessary, as teens operate quite independently. However, the role of parental involvement goes a bit deeper. Parents who enroll their child in the Simply Music Workshop should expect to attend every class with their child, stay for the duration of the class, and actively participate in the lesson.

During the week, parents are responsible for assisting students with accessing their student home materials, establishing a regular practice routine, and assisting them with practice if necessary.
