Piano lessons

In principle, the setup of the lessons is simple. First, you show what you have been practising during the past week. If there are still any difficult points, then we work on those together until it goes better. Then we study the music you can work on during the next week. Usually this goes smoothly and quickly, occasionally perhaps it’s more difficult, but together we will always manage to progress a step further.


The first lessons for beginners usually start off with a certain study course, or in other words a so-called ‘method’. One of the most customary lesson methods for piano is currently ‘Alfred’, a fun course especially popular among children. Some children also like to use the method by Hal Leonard, with pieces that sound somewhat out of the ordinary and which demand more of the ability to fantasize about music. There are also nice and good methods by Bastien, Thompson and Aaron. Once you have learned the basics of playing the piano, there will be ever more opportunity to divert from the ‘method’. You can learn how to play in different styles and completely according to your own taste: from Mozart to Adele, from Bach to Einaudi.


For adult learners, there is an ‘Adult Course’ by Alfred in which theory and reading notes are dealt with faster. Once you have made some progress with the lessons it will become ever easier to find all kinds of different classical and/or popular pieces to play, depending on your interests and ability.
Enjoying making music is always the most important factor, and you will soon realise that practising is everything but a boring activity. Instead, it can be precisely something that can give you a lot of satisfaction: discovering how a piece of music has been composed, working out how to play it in the easiest way, and making it sound the nicest on the piano. During the course of time, you will get to know all kinds of new music and you will experience ever more which music you like the most.
