Music Friends Piano Program (ages 5-6)


teaching piano

The 13-week Music Friends Piano Piano classes are taught by Jenni LeGarde, and meets weekly in Russell Hall, on UNI’s campus. 

Music Friends offers a fun-focused blend of piano playing, basic rhythm/aural training, elementary music-reading, and music appreciation. This group class is an excellent option for the beginner student who is not yet taking private lessons, but is certainly not exclusive to first-time students! All students within the first year of study are encouraged to take part.

The class will culminate with a performance on UNI campus for family and friends  *Please note that Registration is not complete until all required registration and payment have been received.
