Can Learning Piano Actually Be Fun? Yes!

piano lessons airdrie studentsAt Airdrie Piano Lessons, Anthony’s approach to teaching piano is creative, fun, and challenging. It’s a method based on the best of classical pedagogy blended with modern songs and learning to play by ear as well as by reading music.

Anthony’s focus is on building momentum – by quickly learning keyboard geography and training by ear, students are able to begin playing with freedom early in their studies. As the brain and physical co-ordination develop and knowledge of scales, chords, and music notation are introduced, the student builds a layer by layer understanding of how both music and the piano work.

Playing piano can become a life long skill and creative outlet. In the process of learning to play the instrument, the student not only develops as musician but as a person. This is central to Anthony’s teaching – a holistic approach that uses the power of music to help each student grow in confidence, character, and conviction.

Music is the great gift that keeps giving and, in the process, can transform the lives of those who study and perform.
