Play a Story

Piano for ages 4-6


In the world of Play a Story, every imaginative thought, every emotion is an opportunity for your child to express themselves with the language of music.


What would the music sound like if it was the wind in the forest, or a shell tossed around the ocean?

The vocabulary of your child's musical language comes in the form of simple piano motifs - short musical phrases or ideas. The motif incorporates melody, harmony and rhythm.

How your child plays the motif describes what's happening in the story.

As well as creating music, they'll be learning key theoretical concepts, forming a solid playing foundation for their journey forward.

Students also have the opportunity to play their own piano improvisation along to short movies viewed on a device at the piano. Expressing the mood, color and nuance - it's live and spontaneous! The movie scenes come to life through musical interpretation, using our motifs, revealing the true musician inside.

Play a Story is a multi-sensory, 3-dimensional musical experience!
