Step the Beat Music Fundamentals - Preschool Ages 3+


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.

​Location: Musical Chairs Studio 2124 W Lawrence Avenue

Additional classes are available based on interest. A minimum of 4 students is required to create a new class. Parents are welcome to collaborate with friends for a day and time that works for you and we'll provide the instructor!


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 in local schools. We also offer a "Build your own Class" option! If you have a minimum of 4 children and would like a class at our studio locations on a specific day time, we encourage you to Contact Us! We will do our best to accommodate your desired schedule.

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  *  Ear Training  * Sight Reading  *  Rhythm Essentials

Once these basic skills are mastered separate from the instrument, children can move into specific instruments with more confidence and significantly less frustration.
