Learners under age 10 can begin learning about the keyboard for free from Elementary Lessons
Lesson description and instructions
1. MPS provides a more comprehensive, self-paced, online keyboard lesson to prospective clients for learners who are at least 10 years of age. The lesson covers content that might be taught during 3-5 face to face studio lessons for an absolute beginner. The free
interactive lesson helps beginners learn some introductory music theory and how to perform an easy, well-known melody.
2. Accessing the MPS free online lesson content does not download software or content for storage on your hard-drive. You will be viewing and interacting with content through a learning management system using your web browser. The lesson interface will take a few
seconds to load because the file is a fairly large
interactive, multimedia learning object. It contains text, graphics,
audio narration, audio examples, interactive exercises, video
demonstration, quizzing, and feedback results.
3. You can request your free online lesson by going to the contact page. Enter your name, valid email address, and write in the comments field "Free lesson."
4. MPS will send you an email with a link to the free lesson along with the correct login and password to access the material. You will be able to review the self-paced lesson as many times as you want for up to 15 days. Afterwards, you may receive an email requesting your participation in a two-minute online survey about the free lesson.
