A DIFFERENT APPROACH TO MUSIC INSTRUCTION
MUSIC IS A FORM OF COMMUNICATION
Music offers you a way to express your emotions and experiences – to convey feelings that are difficult to put into words.
MUSIC IS A WAY OF CONNECTING
It can bring friends closer together while singing around a campfire. It can place musicians from different countries and walks of life on the same stage to perform. Music allows us to relate to and understand one another.
MUSIC AFFECTS EMOTIONS
It soothes us when we’re sad. It lifts us up when we want to celebrate. Within seconds it can change our mood completely. Creating music can be one of the most enjoyable activities in life.
Too often music is turned into an academic exercise. Staying in touch with what music is all about is crucial when we are learning to play the piano. Music theory, reading music notation, technique, and analysis are all useful, but they are a means to an end.
Getting the greatest possible enjoyment and fulfillment out of playing the piano: this is the final goal.
