Piano and Keyboards covers a very broad area within the rhythmic music today. Piano or grand piano is of course the main instrument, but because of the endless sound possibilities occupies keyboards without doubt an equally important place in the music.

Individual lessons

At the piano, we work with technology (fingering, hand position mm), feeling, voicing and improvisation, and on keyboards we work with the very different roles in music for keyboard player. Including choice of sounds, synthesizer-building and opportunities. Work with notes and chord symbols, but also what to teach music "on the ear ". Listening numbers or solos and use the ideas in a different context or own numbers, is a great method to learn to understand the potential of the instrument. It is very inspiring and probably the most important tool of all. Solo Tuition is of course based on your level.
