I've been wanting to learn to play the piano. I tried to learn online but I still didn't get the techniques right and it didn't really work for me. Upon getting to know about the Contemporary Keyboard Program, I quickly signed up hoping to learn something basic. After the first lesson, I was excited because it is what I've been looking for and what I need. The pace, lessons, and the excellent coach made the whole experience worthwhile and worth every penny. I definitely look forward to continuing the program to a higher level.
I joined the Contemporary Keyboard Program’s beginner module. It is really fun to learn basic knowledge and skills to play the keyboard. Do not worry if you have zero knowledge on music theory or skills as the friendly and encouraging coaches are very willingly to guide you through the program. I am looking forward to enhance my music theory and skills! How about you? Come and join us! Enjoy your musical journey with BELIEVER MUSIC!

I was partially conversant with the notes of a piano but was never into proper learning and playing, hence I thought of enrolling to a course to get better understanding of the keyboard and various aspects of music.
Term 1 itself has made me good at basics of the keyboard and I am able to play simple songs and notes easily now. I have enrolled for 3 more terms based on the great experience that I had in term 1 and especially the amazing instruction by our coach.
The course structure & material's mix with the Story of Mankind is very interesting and beautifully put together. Well done Believer music, keep introducing all to this amazing music learning journey!

Is there an age limit?
We accept registrations from ages 13 and above. We will channel students to classes of compatible age groups wherever possible.
But I know nothing about music!
This step-by-step course is designed for total beginners who have absolutely no prior knowledge in music or the keyboard. Individuals who attended other beginner courses but still find themselves unable to play confidently and effectively are advised to join Level I Module. What you are going to learn here is fun, powerful and meaningful.
What will be covered during the 11 weeks?
Our main objective is to equip you to play confidently on the keyboard. Level I coverage includes: Rhythm Fundamentals - Basic Scale Construction - Basic Chord Construction - Song Application
I have some experience on the classical piano in the past. Is this program suitable for me?
As a piano student, you should already understand the basics of rhythm, chord construction and scale construction. What we will do in this module is to show how beginners can use these concepts in actual playing. You will be able to decide the most appropriate rhythm to use as well as play the song in more than one fashion. The course is fairly demanding and requires concentration and time-allocated practice on your own. Nevertheless, what you are going to learn here is going to be fun and practical. If you feel that you need to learn these from a basic level, you are welcomed to join the classes. If not, you may proceed to Level II.
Is it convenient?
Our Training Centre is fully-equipped and of walking distance to the MRT station.
Is it FUN?
You'll get to meet people who share the same passion. Learning to play a musical instrument can be highly rewarding. Learning to play the keyboard is more than fun. It's life changing. We all know of people around us whom we think have learnt to play the keyboard reasonably well. With practice, this skill will stay and enrich not only your lives but also the lives of people and family around you. For many of us who are just starting to pick up this unique skill, believe that the journey is well worth it.
What is the difference between an acoustic piano and an electric/digital piano?
Both the acoustic piano and electric piano use what is known as weighted keys so they are, in fact, very similar. However, the "touch" of these keys may vary as the acoustic piano keys generally requires greater skill in handling especially if you wish to control the volume of the sound. The electric piano on the other hand offers you the option of turning the volume low if you with to practice quietly or even silently at night, using headphones. The keys are slightly lighter in touch so making it easier for the beginner to handle. You will also have other instrument sounds and functions on the electric piano you can use, besides the piano sound. There is also no need for tuning maintenance, which is required for the acoustic piano.
