Welcome to the Springboard Piano Lessons Homepage!
Springboard Piano offers a convenient way for Colorado Springs families to give their child(ren) the gift of music without the hassle of driving to a lesson. We come to you! And why should your child take piano lessons? If you believe your son or daughter has musical ability, piano instruction lays a solid foundation for future musical pursuits. Starting at a young age (6-9years), students absorb new information much more quickly than adults.
One of the most important elements for parents to understand is that if they do choose to start piano lessons for their child, a disciplined practice schedule is a must. Like any endeavor, piano takes work. Here is a list of some important elements for parents and students to consider:
1/ Is there an interest in music? 2/ Is he/she willing to practice 20 minutes or more, five days a week? 3/ Is there a piano or keyboard at home?
We use the Leila Fletcher series during lessons, which is a Canadian based company. These books can easily be ordered through Meeker Music. For a quick overview of the Leila Fletcher approach see the link: http://www.leilafletcher.com/
Lesson length varies according to age and attention span. Generally, students ages 5-7 should start with a 20 minute lesson, students 8 and up are usually ready for a 30 minute lesson. Lessons are once a week and payment is monthly. See prices below:
What will be covered in a lesson? We are happy to meet with you in person for a free consultation, lesson, and overview of how our lessons run, and what specific musical elements will be covered. Briefly, there is a general breakup as follows: performance pieces (sight reading and memorization), music theory, and ear training.
We have recitals in the Fall and in the Spring. Our recitals are a great opportunity for students to build performance skills, be encouraged by family and friends, and be a part of a larger musical community. We also occasionally attend musical performances as a group.
