    Keyboarding 1 is designed for the beginning piano student.  Students will learn the basics of music reading and basic piano skills including the following:
    • Read and write standard notation.
    • Demonstrate an understanding of the basic concepts of music - melody, rhythm, harmony, form, and expression through playing, performance, and testing.
    • Understand and use the 5-finger position.  As students progress, expansion out of the 5-finger position is expected.
    • Demonstrate an understanding of scales and key signatures by playing assigned pieces.
    • Demonstrate an understanding of chords through usage of broken chords and arpeggios.
    • Progress through the curriculum using the course method book and supplemental materials.

    Keyboarding 2 is designed to extend the skills of students who have taken the Keyboarding 1 class.

    • More complex arpeggio and chord progressions
    • Four octave scales
    • More complex compositions in Garageband
