Having a piano will be an added advantage to help you practice
Learning a new instrument should be an exciting experience that opens you up to a fresh way to express yourself. In this beginners piano course, I will walk with you from the very basics to a place where you will be able to play songs confidently.
I developed this course after years of experience in training students one on one at our music school. The content builds up steadily from one chapter to the next. The teaching style is simplified even for kids to understand. My focus will be to give you both an in-depth theoretical understanding of music and a practical application of these techniques.
We start right from naming notes on the piano, constructing major scales, building simple chords, playing simple chord progressions, using passing chords etc.
You will also learn how to modulate/ change keys while playing songs, a technique used by many arrangers to change the mood or dynamics of a composition.
I have included song examples along the course to help you see the concepts in practical application.
This course lays the foundation of playing gospel piano. It is the best place I recommend for all my students to start learning the piano.
