Course Overview:

Your course will be for beginners but you may well have taken our beginners level 1 course.

You will play some simple tunes and develop your enjoyment of playing the piano in a fun and creative environment. We may well follow the syllabus for Grade 1 Piano.

This course is open to all and there are no specific entry requirements.

You may well have already taken the piano beginners course 1. A knowledge of basic music theory will be useful and level 1 literacy an advantage as handouts will be distributed at different times to reinforce learning.

Course Content:

Your course will provide you with a solid understanding of piano playing and music in general, you will develop your piano playing and consider topics such as :

Basic harmony and theory
Build on your current repertoire of tunes playing Grade 1 pieces.
Developing good posture and finger technique
How and what to practice
We will also listen to a variety of music to extend your musical appreciation.

We will learn as a group but inevitably each learner will develop at their own pace. We will continue to explore a range of music from simple pieces to some more challenging ones as appropriate to your level. We will explore some ensemble (group) pieces appropriate to everyone’s ability and level. You should be able to perform some great pieces by the end of the course.

Assessment Methods:

Not formally but depending on the group we may follow the Grade 1 syllabus
