Piano, performance lessons are conducted in an individual (one-to-one) / private lesson format. Studies at the foundation level cover, absolute novice to secure hobby level playing skills.
Efficient posture, fundamental finger/hand techniques, basic - music reading (standard notation), phrasing, tone, and a secure pulse across slow to moderate tempos are the targetted learning outcomes. The application of these skills is developed across a range of musical eras through carefully selected repertoire, exercises, and practice regimens.
For those who possess some prior playing experience, your mentor will asses your strengths/weaknesses, fill any learning gaps if required, and guide you from there onwards.
Music Theory lessons (weekly) in a group and via live online instruction, in addition to the individual practical session are an essential part of the program. On-demand conversion of any practical On Campus session to a Live Online session is available as a standard.
External assessments and certifications are available through Trinity College London, A.B.R.S.M, and RSL Classical music examinations, this is elective and at the discretion of the learner.
