Piano for Beginners Level 1

This course has no current classes. Please the waiting list.

Never played piano before? Keen to learn?
Piano for Beginners Level 1 is a group class designed for the absolute beginner. By the end of the course you will be able to find your way around the keyboard, play simple tunes and accompaniments and understand the basics of good piano technique.

Over 8 weeks, students will be taken through an intensive course of note reading, finger training and exploration of basic piano literature, as well as basic ensemble playing.

Level 1 will cover aspects of learning the piano, including:
• Note naming/recognition of all 88 keys of the piano.
• The musical alphabet
• Note recognition on a music stave
• Piano technique
• Note values and basic rhythmic understanding
• Understanding keys and accompanying 1-octave scales of keys up to 2 sharps and 1 flat.
• Piano solo and ensemble playing within fixed 5 finger hand positions.

ENTRY LEVEL: an ability to recognise the notes on the stave is helpful but not essential. Access to a keyboard or piano to practice would be beneficial and we recommend about 20 minutes of daily practice throughout the duration of the course.


The classes worked online. My preference is in person, but given the circumstances the online sessions are a great alternative. Peter ran them very well. Everything was clear and I still got a lot out of the classes. (REGARDING ONLINE LEARNING)

_ Peter did a wonderful job. Very professionally conducted.*(REGARDING ONLINE LEARNING)*_

Peter has done a brilliant job of adjusting to online teaching. We still learned what we needed and the breakouts give one to one time which has been great.(REGARDING ONLINE LEARNING)

Very informative and a lot of knowledge gained in a short time. Catered for different levels

Peter is a really great teacher. He’s very helpful with answering questions and he keeps it interesting!

I have really enjoyed the class and have learnt more than in my previous attempts to Learn piano. It is a relaxed environment with a great mix of technical education, practice and performing.

Excellent, Peter is really passionate about teaching. He is sensitive to all the student needs and their insecurities, he is very encouraging and explains things really well.
