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.
