betterArts has scheduled an introductory piano camp for beginners Aug. 18-22 at Better Farm.

"Blast Off With Piano" is held for 45 minutes Monday through Friday at the Better Farm campus with instructor Jason Comet of Watertown Piano Lessons. Students will learn fundamentals of rhythm reading and keyboard geography, and how to play with others through board games, ensemble piano playing, and other age-appropriate activities. 
Children will be divided into three age groups:
  • Ages 5-6 from 10-11 a.m.
  • Ages 7-8 from 11 a.m.-12 p.m.
  • Ages 9-10 from 12-1 p.m. 
There is a six-student maximum for each age group. On Saturday, Aug. 23, students are invited to perform at 12 p.m. to kick off the annual Summer Fest, an annual music festival held at Better Farm. 

Students do not need a keyboard instrument at home to practice on. The camp studio is equipped with enough keyboards for in-class use.
