Piano lessons for Kids & Teenagers
Kids become smarter! they say when they learn to play a musical instrument and in the case of piano students, they develop equal strength and dexterity in both hands and achieve integration of mind/body/emotions.
"And we’re seeing that when a child is immersed in music learning, (his)/her brain grows differently: it’s more interconnected and functions at a uniquely higher level." Music and The Art of Long Term Relationships by Neil Moore (see Articles)
Piano lessons for Adults & Seniors
When research says learn to play a musical instrument and it will help you to keep your 'brain young', it is because of new neural pathways that get created to accommodate the new information that you are acquiring. Piano is a wonderful instrument as you have to develop equal strength and mastery of both hands, gives immediate feedback as to how you are progressing, you're able to accompany yourself singing, play a vast array of melodic and harmonic patterns. Patterns is what the brain loves. I will show you how, step by step and you will learn to play blues, ballads, classical and accompaniment pieces and acquire a repertoire of up to 60 pieces in your first year of study.
"Greta is knowledgeable about the system I'm learning: to recognise patterns in written music and learning to sing and play the music. Norm, Age 88
"It is an enjoyable way to learn. Minimal stress. I manage it at my own pace." Kor, Age 65
Piano improves learning difficulties
Suitable for those with learning difficulties because playing piano stimulates the two halves of the brain by encouraging the left and right to develop, coordinate and integrate. The act of singing adds another dimension to the experience.
