Piano Lessons


 For Groups

Grade 1 and Up

At Arrow Academy of Music your young musician will develop a lifelong love of music in a creative group setting that makes music lessons fun and rewarding! Your student will be placed in a small group according to age and skill level. This team of students will learn and grow together, being motivated to practice consistently at home because they play with other musicians at each weekly 55-minute lesson. Your child will learn note reading, playing by ear, and music theory right from the start. Middle and high school students enjoy deep satisfaction continuing their learning to also include improvisation, creating their own music, and playing “popular” songs they know, all while being with like-minded friends. Your child will thrive with studio events such as the Amazing Music Races, performances, the incentive and shopping programs, and practicing awards. When your student completes the entire course, they will have the skill and knowledge for both a classical college music audition and to play in a jazz ensemble! Group lessons of this kind are only found at Arrow Academy of Music in the Des Moines area, making this a particularly unique opportunity to give your child.
