Kelly Kirby Preparatory Piano Program

Our “Kelly Kirby Preparatory Piano Summer Program” is specifically design for 3 year olds with the goal of developing the skills needed in order to be successful when entering the Introductory Piano Program.

Taught in small groups, students will develop listening skills through ear training, fine motor skills through hand games and finger exercises both on and off the keyboard, and some basic knowledge of pitch and dynamics.

The lesson content for this new Preparatory Piano Class has been developed from the original Kelly Kirby Teachers’ Manual published at the University of Toronto in the 1930’s as part of their Royal Conservatory program for children. The Kelly Kirby Introductory Piano Program then went on to become the foundation program for thousands of young children attending classes at the Conservatory and throughout music schools and studios across North America.
