Piano Gymnastics is an event designed to allow students to show their technical skills at the piano. Students may earn ribbons for completion of various levels of technical proficiency. Some of these skills include 5-finger patterns in all keys, primary chords, scales and arpeggios. This event promotes these important foundational skills in a positive manner, encouraging students to work toward higher levels of technical achievement. Piano Gymnastics takes place annually in the fall.
Participation in Piano Gymnastics is optional for each member’s studio.
