Piano for Fun - Beginners
This course, for beginners, is designed to be a fun way of learning how to play the piano. By learning a new song each week, you will learn the basic theory and the practical skills you need to play tunes on a keyboard. We will start by learning how to recognise notes on the keyboard and how to play a melody with one hand, and gradually move on to adding harmonies and bass notes. We will learn to play by ear as well as by reading music.
The aims of this course are to get comfortable with the basics of playing piano, make some great sounds together and to have fun while doing it.
