The teacher for this course is a Grade 8 level achiever, the highest level in music awarded by the Trinity Music College, London. Her grade also certifies her to impart the knowledge she has gained pursuing piano and music theory. This course will commence by teaching the western music basics and theory. It will speak to students about rhythm, which is a combination of beats played at different speeds also referred to as tempo in a musical piece. Next up, the teacher will teach students about dynamics that is basically the expression of music, which could represent excitement, joy, sorrow, articulation and such other factors in a musical piece. Further on students get introduced and briefed about melody which relates to the pitch, meaning the characteristics relating to the tone that defines high or low notes, in other words, the loudness or softness in a song or tune.

    Moving ahead, in this course students get introduced to the harmony which relates to the different notes played simultaneously in patterns to create a pleasing sound. The teacher will next speak about texture in music, educating students on the different styles of music. This course that adheres to the ABRSM standard of music education will through the course of this beginner program teach students on navigating the keyboard, reading classical notes, the finger techniques required to play the piano.

Finally, at the culmination of this course students will be able to play, Elvis, Beethoven and the piano repertoire on the piano, besides being ready to appear for the ABRSM, Grade 1, certification test or exam.
