The University of Colorado Boulder now offers piano lessons for youth ages 6 to 17 years old. Through the CU-Boulder Youth Piano Program, youth will learn from experienced College of Music instructors who are supervised by the CU Piano Pedagogy Chair, Dr. Alejandro Cremaschi. The lessons provide thorough instruction at the highest and most effective pedagogical standards while providing opportunities for fun, motivation, and enjoyment of music.
Now in its second semester, the program struck a cord with parents of the students in enrolled in fall lessons.
“The instructor has been fantastic,” said Holly Harding, whose son will return to the program in the spring.
Similarly, Alicia Christopher’s daughter will continue the progress she has made in her fall lessons. As a testament to her daughter’s progress, Christopher’s neighbors have mistaken her six-year-old daughter’s practicing for an adult’s craft.
“This program is awesome, and my daughter has learned so much,” she said. “I look forward to keeping her here for a long time.”
Students train weekly with one-hour or half-hour private lessons. New students will have a diagnostic lesson and parent interview with the instructor to determine their level and needs.
