Have you had some basic piano and want to continue?  In a fun group setting, this course builds on your reading skills, moving to more interesting repertoire in a wider variety of keys, and takes technique, chords, harmonization and improvisation, and solo and ensemble repertoire to the next level.  After twelve weeks, you will reach easy classical repertoire and sophisticated arrangements of favorite songs and pieces. Transfer students are welcome to join those continuing on from Beginning Piano for Adults I.  Developed music reading skills are needed in both bass and treble clefs, and prior experience with the easier scales is preferable.  Materials are included in the course fee.
