Longtime Cadek instructor and music educator Janet Sump brings excellent group piano classes to students through her signature programs, Piano Klass Kidz and Teens at Keyboards.
About Piano Klass Kidz at Cadek
Piano Klass Kidz provides an accessible small group and one-on-one format for children ages 6 to 8 who are learning piano. This structure builds self-esteem and confidence and paves the way for traditional music lessons and beyond.
Research in early childhood music education has shown that group instruction not only imparts basic music skills, but also provides an enjoyable, stress-free environment for learning. This program enables students to learn and develop skills in a group setting, helps them connect with their peers, and serves as an excellent preparation for the next step in learning music—private instruction at Cadek.
