Anyone can sign up for this private course, whether you are an absolute beginner or an experienced pianist. The content and pace of the course is adapted to your level and learning objectives. You have a wide range of possibilities in pop, jazz and improvisation. If you have no experience playing the piano, you’ll start with the basics, such as playing chords, reading notes and practising rhythms. You’ll soon be able to play simple pop and blues tunes. If you already have experience in playing classical piano, you can use your background and technique to develop your skills as there is very little technical difference. You’ll pick up pop and jazz chords fairly easily. The weekly piano lessons provide a basis. If you want to get the most out of the course, we would advise you to practise outside the lessons.
