What is Let’s Play Music?
Let’s Play Music is a music theory course that emphasizes total musicianship through piano playing, singing, classical music, note reading, and ear training… and it is accomplished through play.

The curriculum is organized into three sequential years. The first year, we use engaging games and songs and incorporate Tone Bells to teach staff awareness and rhythm reading skills. The second year, we transfer these skills to playing the piano where we also learn chord notation, intervals, and harmonic improvisation. By the end of the third year, students are playing piano at an intermediate level, transposing music, composing their own music, sight-reading music, and are prepared to excel in further private piano instruction.
The Let’s Play Music site has more information on each year’s curriculum.
