This system prepares the student with many essential techniques such as learning various contemporary/classical & jazz pieces of music in solo style or with a back up track (karaoke) which accompanies each book. As our logo has demonstrated for over 25 years, we teach in what we call a five star system known as the ESSENTIAL APPROACH. This system is unique because we embrace all genres and styles of music and we teach them all to our students accordingly. We also ensure that our students learn how to read music and not just play by ear.
Reading music allows the student to play a piece of music instantly and without the long process of having to listen to it several times beforehand as many pianists who play by ear and can't read music have to do.
Reading music will also improve your playing capabilities as well as invoke the ability known as multi tasking. Reading music is linked to generating higher achievements in academic subjects (in both mathematics as well as language skills) since it increases the mind's capacity to analyse even to the extent of teaching the student to discriminate between two similarities. There is much documented evidence that correct music learning improves children's aptitude and academic performances by up to 30%.
We can also cater for students who wish to learn an entirely classical repertoire or modern and jazz. We do not discriminate between styles and we teach with the intention that our students enjoy their music as well as learning how to become versatile in the art of playing piano or keyboard.
We teach from an award winning system (beginners to advanced) with many popular and classical pieces transcribed to piano and keyboard and we guarantee that you will find our system very rewarding as well as motivating where all your family and friends will want to hear you play time and time again.
