In the same way that we all learn to speak years before we learn to read and spell, Simply Music Piano temporarily delays music reading and immerses students in the experience of immediately playing great-sounding music. We do this so successfully by introducing students to an array of unique playing-based concepts that unfold directly onto the keyboard. The result of this is that students quickly, easily and naturally are playing a solid foundation of 35 to 50 beautiful pieces, and this is typically acquired over the first year or so of lessons. Thereafter, our unique approach to music reading is introduced. We love that our students become strong readers and we love our unique approach of how we teach students to read. We also love the fact that we don’t introduce reading from the very beginning – it’s the future of music education, and it’s a far more natural approach.
The Simply Music Piano Method is designed to maximize the likelihood of students acquiring and retaining music as a lifelong companion.
Our program is designed so that students:
· Experience playing as a natural self-expression
· Play a broad repertoire that includes classical, contemporary, blues, jazz, accompaniments and more…
· Learn to “self-generate”, i.e., progress independently as musicians, and have a strong foundation in music reading and theory
· Have a highly positive, self-affirming experience
