My piano classes for young children are fun and cover music basics and an introduction to playing the piano in a relaxed and supportive environment. They learn to read music, clapping, singing and with playful piano methods and fun exercises a solid basis of piano playing.
The piano is an amazing instrument which allows you to enjoy playing music all by your self in a wide variety of music styles. Want to learn to improvise? Along with the basics of improvisation you will want to learn some music theory to help you know what your options are and how notes, chords and rhythms work together to create great-sounding music.
