"I wanted to just let you know that Erika had an amazing time at school today. She loves her teacher very much. I am very pleased with how she is able to motivate Erika to play and want to learn. What an amazing experience. Erika always wanted to write her own music and play really well. I believe with Ketevan she will get to that place.
She spent 2. 5 hours today practicing so she is ready next Saturday. Ketevan is very good, motivating and knowledgable teacher."
Group Preparatory Piano Lessons For Children 3 to 5 Years Old
These innovative group lessons are specially designed for younger students to prepare them for further private piano lessons. Children will be introduced to the piano, taught the keyboard and musical alphabet through imagery and fun games which capture their attention and foster their imagination. They will develop the essential understanding of the piano literature appropriate for early ages.

Reviewing Lessons After 7 Months
Listening To The Piano - Making Stories
"My daughter has been with Golden Key Piano School since she was 3.5 years old. She started out in their group class then has continued with the weekly private lessons. It is hard to imagine children engaged with something as difficult as learning piano and remaining focused for an hour-long lesson. And yet, not only do the teachers at Golden Key manage to do that, they also make it fun and easy for children to learn music..."

Transitional classes are semi-private lessons for those students who graduate from the 9 month prep-piano class but are still too young to start one-hour private lessons.
Each class is 45 minutes long and includes a 15 minute private lesson for each student at the piano, and a 30 minute class with another fellow classmate of the same age. In the 15 minute individual lesson the student gets personal attention and works on beginning piano skills, and in the 30 minute shared lesson the student will learn the new musical alphabet and note reading, as well as work on listening skills with a classmate in a more fun and engaging way.
Transition classes last until the student is 5 years old and can start private lessons.
In order to have the feeling of working toward a goal, and also to practice performing, students have an opportunity to perform their pieces in a friendly atmosphere of a small group of students on the first Wednesday of each month. To let the students enjoy the experience of an informal performance we ask parents not to sit in the audience for these monthly performances.
