Group lessons at Colourful Keys are a fantastic way to begin piano studies. Beginning piano students can learn in groups of 3-4 students, instead of taking one-on-one lessons.
There are many benefits to studying piano in small groups.
- Learning alongside peers builds a sense of community
- Play music games together
- Participation in ensemble playing and activities
- Built-in performance opportunities
- Working as part of a team
- Piano is a fun & social activity not a lonely one
Each student has their own fully weighted keyboard during lessons. The students get to play together and perform for each other every week, as well as learning through games and rhythmic movement activities.
Group lessons at Colourful Keys are in small groups of only 3-4 students. This ensures all students can still receive individual attention while getting all the benefits of a social experience.
For 5 & 6 year olds ‘Rhythm Rockstars’ is the perfect introduction to music making. Young beginners can get off to have a flying start on the keys, learning through play with their piano pals!
In a typical Rhythm Rockstars lesson we march to beats, experiment with improvisation, create rhythm ensembles and learn to read music as a team.
Rhythm Rockstars is currently enrolling for two classes starting in September, Fridays at 3pm and Saturdays at 3pm. You can enrol for these classes or register your interest for a different class time at the bottom of the page. If you have any questions about the class feel free to get in touch.
In Melody Maestros 7 & 8 year old beginners will learn familiar and fun pieces through a mixture of notation, ear playing and memory work. Young students benefit from learning beginning musical concepts through rhythm ensembles, movement and games.
Melody Maestros are confident performers – they get to play together and solo for each other every week. Scales and technical skills can be super fun when we can get together and “gameify” the learning.

Friends are so important to kids at this age, and when they get to attend piano class with their peers it’s so much more motivating.
Harmony Heros aren’t restricted to one style of music, they use the build blocks of music to explore many different genres.

All the while the children are learning functional music theory and great technique that will set them up for many years of music making.
