Keys for Kids will hold 2 free, public concerts on Sunday, June 10 at Pilgrim's Congregational Church, 55 Coolidge Ave. in Lexington. Concert times are 2:30 and 4:45 p.m. Each concert will feature 3 to 4 group classes performing in the keyboard orchestra ensemble style and about 30 private piano students, ages 4 to adult. The first afternoon concert also will feature two small singing groups. The second concert will have a few guitar performances.
Keys for Kids is an engaging comprehensive group music program, designed to help children discover the world of music through music games, ear training, solfege singing, rhythm activities, and keyboard playing. Courses are designed to encourage development of both the individual's and the group's musical skills. Lessons are organized in a carefully planned sequence that guarantees fun and success. Class time activities cover many aspects of musicianship while accommodating children's attention spans. Children develop a solid musical foundation, regardless of future instrument choice. Classes are taught to small groups of parent-child teams. Groups are carefully organized according to children's age, skill level, and musical goals. Parents are encouraged (and for the youngest students, required) to learn along with their children. Each semester, students receive a new, exciting, and challenging book that includes music pieces, theory, sight-reading, ear training, and technique activities. Students who progress through each level will graduate as independent musicians who can read, write, perform, love, and understand music. The graduation performances at the end of each semester and annual recitals provide opportunities for students to perform.
