Students will discover how to control rhythm, tempo and volume, and how to express themselves artistically. The guitar skills learned in class will allow anyone to play any style of music.

PIANO

Keyboard Educators provides quality piano lessons taught after school at Saint Philips. We provide piano lessons with a master teacher. Piano lessons are taught in a classroom setting. Each child plays the piano independently with the piano teacher. Children learn how to play the piano and learn music theory, to read and write music. This is a comprehensive music course for beginners to intermediate level students, grades kindergarten to eighth grade. Each student receives a piano and theory book for their grade level.

Classes are taught at Saint Philips each Thursday, once a week, after school from 3:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. There are 10 one hour lessons for $180.00 each session. There are three sessions each school year. Piano students have continuous piano instruction throughout the school year, where they can advance their musical abilities.

CHESS

Learn chess in a fun, engaging, and dynamic environment. Our philosophy is to instill the love of the game.  As a result, we’re able to witness firsthand our students developing patience, strategic planning ability, and critical thinking skills.  They also come to understand that decisions, both on and off the chess board, result in consequences.  Class caters to all levels (grades K-8) and all participants receive our exclusive workbooks. If you have any questions regarding the program, please feel free to call (888)44-CHESS.
