A classic instrument, the piano is extremely popular to learn both on its own and in conjunction with singing. Our piano teachers focus on technical work that is suited to the style the student wants to learn. For example, if a student wants to work towards AMEB (Australian Music Examination Board) classical piano exams the necessary technical work will be taught and worked through gradually in the lesson. If the student is interested in leisure/contemporary styles there will still be a focus on technical work but only the essential elements useful for the style. There is a strong focus on reading music as we believe this is an extremely important and useful skill and can prepare the student for future exams. Emphasis is put on practice at home in order to progress at a faster rate.

Each student learns differently too so lessons will be structured in a way to help learn in the way that best suits them.

The lesson will comprise technical elements and then working through a book to learn to read and play music. As the student progresses they can be given the option of analysing music; why and how it was written, the period, composer, etc. 

 Piano lessons are incredibly beneficial for both children and adults, having the potential to grow skills in other areas of life. Piano can assist in:

  • Relieving stress

  • Strengthening split concentration

  • Improves language and vocabulary skills

  • Can become a social instrument

  • Strengthens hand muscles

Enhancing your piano skills can lead to many health improvements in a range of areas and provides students to opportunity to play a very popular and stimulating instrument.
