Editions are available for each age group, from young children through adult. Students also work on standard classical repertoire, supplemented by other genres of interest to the student.


The primary Theory and Technic curriculum used is TCW Resources (part of the Keyboard Gymnastics Program), by Laura Zisette, Charlene Shelzi and Kathleen Lloyd.
