At Piano Wise we teach with Simply Music, a breakthrough Australian method. Everyone, without exception, is naturally musical and can begin hands-on without having to learn to read music first. This playing-based method has students playing a variety of songs and styles, such as contemporary pop, jazz/blues, classics, with both hands from the very first lessons.
Traditional piano methods insist that beginning students learn to read music as the means of learning how to play. This removes the natural connection between the student and instrument – and it takes away all the fun, too. In fact, expecting children to read music before they have learned how to play is like expecting them to read and spell before they have learned how to talk.
Reading music is introduced once a playlist of around 30 songs has been learned, just like having a basic vocabulary before learning to read and write.
With Simply Music, you experience the pleasure and satisfaction that comes from immediately playing a huge repertoire of great-sounding music.
