What types of piano lessons do you do?
Classical Piano Lessons
The traditional approach to playing piano.
Explore some of the most famous music written, by some of the world’s greatest composers.The focus here is on developing correct technique and a high level of musicality, creating a true virtuoso!
Classical piano lessons can really explore the limits of your ability and push you to boundaries you never thought you could hit.
Classical piano is very traditional and does follow a set of guidelines - they are always good to follow to create perfect technique, although don't worry if you have never played it before. It's just like any other genre!
Let us know what style of classical piano you would like to learn and we will try and accomodate for you.
Jazz Piano Lessons
A piano is an important tool of jazz musicians.
Mastering various chord voicings and learning the art of improvisation are valuable skills to behold. The creative and expressive development of Jazz is very rewarding.
Jazz piano is by no means easy, but incredibly rewarding and satisfying to play. Some people say jazz piano is one of the hardest disciplines. This is due to having a large focus on improvisation. Learning to improvise over a set of chords is key.
Therefore, understanding key signatures, chords and arpeggios is key! These are often the most common tools used for jazz piano.
Pop Music Piano Lessons
Everything from pop/rock to film scores. Gain the knowledge and learn to play either solo or in a band.
Develop an understanding of chord progressions and popular melodies then enjoy playing some of the most recognisable hit tunes!
Pop piano lessons often incorporate chord changes as well as typical rhythms. You will be surprised once you learn a few chord progressions how many pop songs use these.
For example, one of the most common progressions in the wold is the I, V, IVm, IV (G, D, Em, C in G major). If you can play this progression, you can already play hundreds of songs! No need to learn them all individually!
What will I learn during my piano lessons?
Learn to play the piano
The piano is such a versatile instrument that everyone wants to write for it.
It’s always been a centrepiece in both the classical and popular music world. No matter which instrument you play, it is always helpful to have some basic keyboard stills under your belt.
Learning the piano is highly fulfilling and a fantastic way to relax. Like many skills, it takes a long time to master an instrument but when the basics are in place, progress can be easy.
Take a look below of what we’ll cover at the beginning:
Basic First Year Curriculum
This will be your basic curriculum for the first year of learning piano.
Initial meeting and emergency contact information.
Producing a good hand, wrist, arm and piano stool position.
How the piano works. The difference in pitch, higher and lower.
Understanding the pattern of notes with black notes in groups. How they can be used to find our way around the keyboard. Locating Middle C. Finding sets of notes.
Understanding the pattern of notes A to G and where they appear on the keyboard. Learning that they have a place on the stave (treble and bass).
Using and understanding finger numbers.
Maintaining a pulse.
Understanding rhythm: crotchet, minim and semi-breve and their rests – explore quavers aurally.
Pitch: singing back a simple melody and singing the tonic, understanding high and low and their position on the keyboard.
