Premium Music Class

Division 1 Premium and Division 2 (8 to 14 years old) 1 hr 45 min

The Premium Music Course combines both live performances and specialized masterclasses to enhance engagement for students who have primarily been involved in individual lessons. This approach maintains the personalized attention crucial for advancing in piano studies. One of the highlights of this course is the collaborative energy generated through group activities, peer practice, and efficient problem-solving techniques. The atmosphere is similar to what you’d experience in the BAAM club and intensive camps. This unique class is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and is designed to propel students to higher divisions, thereby deepening their commitment to music. It’s important to note that if a student doesn’t demonstrate progress or interest by the end of the year, re-enrollment in this exclusive course will not be an option. Furthermore, the student will be limited to advancing only as far as Division 1 moving forward.
