Have you always wished you could play piano but think it is too late? Think again! 


Did you once take piano lessons but have forgotten what you learned (and wish to start again)? You can!  


Come join the ARC’s Recreational Music Making (RMM) class in piano. Beginner weekly classes taught by Susan Lipnick.


What is RMM?

RMM classes provide a supportive group environment in which to explore the basics of piano playing and music reading. The emphasis is on fun and enjoyment, and the limited class size (four students) allows for a good balance of learning, support, and social time. No prior piano experience or talent is necessary, just a desire to learn the basics of keyboard or piano playing. A piano or keyboard at home is helpful for between-lesson practicing but not required. Solo playing during or between classes is always voluntary, and there 

are no recitals!
