Level 2: Intermediate

Cheers to Friends and Allies Brewing for hosting this round of our Level 2 Craft Piano course!

Although the class will still be considered a beginner level course without a high ABV, there are a few prerequisites that will make sure you are able to jump right in and enjoy the content without getting too tipsy! NONE of these prerequisites require mastery, but rather a bit of past interaction, even if it has been many, many years—playing music is kind of like riding a bike.


  • General familiarity with either the bass or treble clef, preferably both, but fluent reading is not expected

  • A basic understanding of rhythmic notation, durational values and time signatures—whole notes, half notes, quarter notes, eighth notes, and 16th notes, dotted notes, and their corresponding rest values, along with 2/4, 3/4, and 4/4 time signatures

  • Ability to construct C, D, E, F, G, A major/minor pentascales on the keyboard and an understanding of whole step vs. half step

  • Some familiarity with musical terminology such as dynamics (piano, forte, crescendo, decrescendo, etc.), articulation (staccato, legato, slurs).

  • Finger numbers as they relate to piano are not critical if you have prior experience on another instrument, but it will be important to learn and grasp in the first class

  • Good taste in beer encouraged


  • 8 weeks of lessons

  • 1 hour per lesson

  • 11 spots available

  • 11 keyboards set up for each lesson (unless your this guy, one for each student)

  • 1 beer included in every lesson!

  • Only $35 per lesson--beer and curriculum included!


  • Beer-themed music theory and reading

  • Piano technique

  • Music history and appreciation

  • Did we mention you'll get a beer at every lesson?

Access to a piano for personal practice between lessons will help you get the best buzz from Craft Piano lessons. For information on low-cost piano keyboard rentals, check out Capital Music Center and tell them Beerthoven sent you!
