Who should sign up for this module? Am I eligible to signup?

i) No knowledge of music or keyboard playing
ii) Had some classical piano training in the past (Grades 1 - 3) but stopped in the early stages
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.
What will be covered during the 11 weeks?
Our main objective is to equip you to play confidently on the keyboard. Coverage includes: Rhythm Fundamentals - Basic Scale Construction - Basic Chord Construction - Song Application
Do I need to know how to read musical notation before attending the training sessions?
No knowledge of music notation is required at all. We are using a separate system from the conventional keyboard teaching protocol. This knowledge will be imparted only later at a timely juncture. Once again, our main objective is to equip you to express yourself confidently on the keyboard.
I have some experience on the classical piano in the past. However, I arrived at a plateau in my growth as a musician especially in the area of personal worship. 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. 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 WDI.
I do not have an instrument for home practice. Do you have any recommendations?
It is good to have an instrument of your own since you would be practicing often. Please click on "Instrument Packages" to find out more.
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.
