Our early childhood group classes - Step the Beat and Step into Piano - are held in our Lincoln Square studio space as well as part of after school programs at St. Matthias School. These classes are designed to build a strong music foundation in preparation for learning and instrument or even just to develop of love and appreciation for music.

​Our unique group lesson "pre-requisite" to private lessons. Through our combined teaching experience of more than 50 years, the instructors of Musical Chairs have created an innovative introductory music class designed to build a strong music foundation prior to beginning private instrument instruction.  Our 4 areas of focus are:

* Note Reading  * Rhythm Essentials  * Sight Reading * Ear Training

Once these basic skills are mastered separate from the instrument, children can move into specific instruments with more confidence and significantly less frustration. Step the Beat also works on building a strong practice routine which can be carried over into private lessons.

Step into Piano is phase II in our early childhood music program. Ideally, children will have completed a year or two of Step the Beat prior to entering Step into Piano, but this is not required. With Step into Piano. we offer a group option for children to begin learning basic piano skills. Children will work with various tools to learn notes on the keyboard as well as the staff. They will practice using rhythm and begin learning to read music. Each class will have keyboard time where children work directly on the instrument. The benefit to this program is children learn basic piano skills in a more affordable (and often more fun) group setting. They emerge better prepared for private lessons in piano as well as other instruments.
