An extremely popular instrument in Western classical music since the late 18th century, the piano when combined with the proper student creates some of the most beautiful piece in the world. RSPA pianists begin with one note with the intention to grow and join our District Champion team.


Life is filled with rhythms. Beats providing a cadence and undertone that mimics the highs and lows. Our percussion classes offer students in depth study into the various instruments that make up the percussion family. RSPA percussion students can also audition to join our drum line which routinely travels as invited performance guests.
