piano for singers
children / teens / adults
Haver you ever been presented with a score and had no idea where to start? Do you rely on recordings to learn songs? Have you ever wanted to ditch the backing track and accompany yourself? Do the words 'key change' perplex you?
As a singer, one of the most important things you can do to support your learning journey is to develop your piano skills. With all the music theory laid at your fingertips in black and white, you will gain self sufficiency in practice and performance, and learn invaluable skills to help you 'debunk' the songs you want to learn! And heres the good news... you don't have to be a whiz at scales or practice for hours a day to see real results!
