PACE Piano Program

Kinderkeyboard

A small class (3-7 children) for children ages 5-7.  The FUNdamentals of music are presented through games and activities with the keyboard as the primary instrument.  A piano or keyboard at home is required.  The class meets once a week for 50 minutes.  Class times are determined based on registration. 

Contact instructor Kathy Ciaccia at 293-1523 (home) for further information.

Comprehensive Musicianship

This is the heart of the Pace Piano Program at RCMS.  Students ages 7+ get the advantage of a private or partner lesson (depending on need and availability) for 20-45 minutes as well as a 30-minute class.  The class supplements ensemble playing, fundamental music theory, sight-reading, ear training, jazz and improvisation in a fun way.  By taking both kinds of classes (private/partner and the class), students develop into well-rounded musicians.  Classes are formed with a minimum of three students of similar age and experience, so availability is based on current enrollment.  Whenever possible, private/partner lessons and classes are scheduled back to back.  Partner lessons (2 students) may be available without a class for 45-60 minutes.
