All Piano Lessons Core Features
All piano lessons start with the ear and the sound, particularly developing your inner ear (hearing music in your mind). It is the musician, the mind, that tells the fingers what to do. Piano lessons should connect the mind, the imagination and the soul that the music effortlessly flows.
Piano lessons frequently develop performances of famous melodies alongside transposition of them into different keys. This results in piano lessons that help you intuitively feel the relationships between notes, rather than just their letter names.
Grasping chord progressions is important to piano lessons in all styles.
Improvise on key concepts/theory to gain a deeper understanding occurs in all piano lessons through practical activities. Theory does not have to be dry or ‘in a book’, rather, it should be alive (and fun!) in piano lessons through the pieces that we play.
Reading & sight-reading are frequently taught via adapted notation of the song/piece used in the piano lessons through a method that further enhances understanding and improvisation. In some piano lessons, the same piece might be presented in different keys for instance, in order to understand keys and scales practically. In other piano lessons, the same piece might be presented with different accompaniment styles.
