Piano and Organ

The Music Academy Piano Program offers a pre-piano class, which serves as an introduction to more formal piano instruction, keyboard instruction for students ages 6 to 18, and lessons for adults in piano and organ. Piano instruction for children begins with pre-staff notation and expands to landmark-based intervallic reading. After the first year of study, most children participate in the Illinois State Music Teacher's Association curriculum assessment (AIM), where they demonstrate skills and receive certificates and pins for participation.
