Beat summer boredom this year with music!

Piano teaching2Pensacola Studio of Piano is offering both preschool music classes (ages 3-5) and private piano lessons (ages 5-adult) this summer, and there’s still time to enroll! Preschool music classes are much more than just adult-led singing and play time. Your child will learn about different musical instruments, note types and values, piano key names, and more, all in a fun, positive environment. Classes each have only 3-6 children to ensure that each child is involved and learning. Private piano lessons open up the world of music to students using fun music books and positive reinforcement. Students will get a solid foundation in the basics of music while playing creative, exciting music that appeals to kids in the current generation.

Summer classes and lessons will begin the week of June 23. Please contact Krysten Skutt at krysten.skutt@gmail.com or www.facebook.com/PensacolaPianoStudio for more information about pricing and available lesson times.
