What makes us different?
We truly believe music is beyond graded certifications. There are multiple skills that are required to be a professional. We teach all skills in different and innovative ways which helps them when they step outside in the music world. Some of the skills are :
A good ability to improvise marks the difference between a player and a professional Improvisation is the activity of making or doing something not planned beforehand, using whatever can be found. It is very important to improvise effectively, beautifully and patiently. While performing for an audience the quality of improvising stands out. We ensure that every student learning with us build the best skill of improvising through our different fun methods.
Every player aspires to play the music immediately on piano after listening to it at once . This is known as Transcribing. Transcribing refers to playing a melody mixed with different instruments on piano. This can only be achieved with effective ear training. We conduct various exercises to train your ears so that you can transcribe effectively.
We always pay attention to the fact that each class should be different. We never encourage monotonous classes. In each class we try to include different activities and games which helps us to interact with the students and form a bond and helps them to learn music in a fun way. To keep classes different , interactive, lively and knowledgeable is always our first and last goal.
