Experiencing Piano for Adults

Adults 1
Experiencing Piano for Adults is the only program at Mizzou that provides group keyboard study for adults. Weekly classes are taught on campus by Mizzou graduate piano students, and the program is coordinated by Meghan Speed. Integrating a holistic study of the keyboard — sight-reading, harmony, theory basics, and repertoire — this semester-long non-credit course offers a social, engaging, and low-stress introduction on how to play the piano. Each class has a capacity of 12 students — maximizing the opportunity for group learning.
