Piano Lab I: Beginning Piano (MIN2249.02, section 2)

Chris Rose

Have you been thinking about learning to play the piano? Are you completely new to playing an instrument and want to give it a try? Do you have a little experience from childhood and want to get back into it? Are you a singer, songwriter, producer, or composer who wants to know how to accompany themselves, learn to read sheet music and chord symbols, and understand the basics of music theory?

If you answered yes, then Piano Lab I might be right for you.

This section of piano lab will be scheduled as weekly 20 minute lessons with the instructor.

One to two hours per week of individual practice is expected.
