About this class

This is not a playing piano learning class. This class will emphasizes musical activities from Pinterest and Google images that help the student gain knowledge of musical terms, notes, clapping or playing rhythms, high or low, music word searches, musical word crossword puzzles, name that tune, spelling bee with notes, adding musical note values, chord games, etc.

The instructor Stephen B. will get images from these internet sites and some of his own and will screen share them or view them with his camera. We can take turns working on each musical activity.
(If you register and decided not to show please cancel your registration as soon as you can so I can know ahead of time how many people will attend)

About Stephen B.

I worked at Piano Playtime where I taught twelve Kindergarten to 4th grade group piano lessons. I am easy to get along with, and very patient with kids and adults.

In the past, I scored a local film titled "The Times Were Never So Bad: The Life of Andre Dubus" who's son Andre Dubus III wrote the story "The House of Sand and Fog." In 2003 the novel was adapted into a film starring Ben Kingsley and Jennifer Connelly. The film won first place at the Providence Film Fest in 2007. I also composed a piano jingle for the online college Capella University. Currently, I am composing a rock opera which will be recorded and produced by the producer of the song All 4 One- I swear.

Locations near Newton, Brookline, Wellesley, Needham, Dedham, Dover, Westwood, Waltham, Bedford, Boston, Route 128, area etc. are okay or you can come to me. I also teach online.

I look forward in sharing this musical journey with you!
