A classical piano instructor for Preston students
The classical years gave us some of the most powerful and well recognised musical pieces of all-time, including arrangements from the likes of Baroque, romantic and 20th Century eras.
Focusing our passion on these periods, students can enjoy these timeless pieces through sight reading and techniques, as they navigate some of the greatest historical arrangements.
New students will be mesmerised by the beauty they are capable of producing while those preparing for exams will be taught the nuances and emotions needed to wholeheartedly produce the sound these pieces demand.
At higher levels, students will delve into more complex theory, with all able to showcase their skills at the end-of-year concert.
Jazz and contemporary beginner piano lessons
For those seeking a less structured, more free-form brand of piano-playing, jazz is the style for you.
Directed by their piano instructor – Simon – Students will build on chord theory with improvisation techniques, including playing accompanied if desired. This is a great way for classical players to break loose and develop their own sound, improving their ability to sing and play at the same time as well.
However, if you’re those looking to emulate your favourite modern musicians, contemporary classes will help you learn to not only play like them – but to write music for this category, as well.
All beginner piano lessons we provide across Preston focus on:
- chord structure;
- chord progressions;
- melody and harmony
- song structure;
- rhythm and feel
- song writing.
Beyond these aspects, we also provide private singing lessons, with Simon having being recognised as a well-regarded vocal coach in Melbourne.
