Classical Piano

The piano is undoubtedly the King of instruments and it needs no other accompaniment. It stands alone and can be enjoyed anywhere whilst providing all the fundamentals in music; melody, rhythm and harmony. It has few rivals and is the instrument of choice for those who want a fulfilling hobby or pastime.

Playing the piano is good for your brain and the overall functionality of your body. It has been proven over the past few decades, as the technology to quantify changes in the brain has improved, that playing music stimulates more of your brain simultaneously than any other activity. Playing an instrument is also one of the best mental releases, and actually helps regulate your organs and body functions as well.

The piano is usually used to play two parts simultaneously. This is one of its most unique qualities. With the piano, most of its music is written to provide chords and melody all played by one musician. … All of these points lead people to call the piano the most versatile and best instrument to learn first.

It is a beautiful instrument with a beautiful look and a beautiful sound.

The sound created by the piano is unlike anything else on the planet. Capable of sounding fleeting and effervescent one instant, and gritty and powerful the next, few other instruments have anything close to the range of the piano – both tonally and dynamically. Of all instruments, the piano is also considered the most similar to the human voice. Try listening to a Chopin Nocturne (I recommend the one in Bflat minor) played live and tell me that sound doesn’t move you.

Learning the piano is the best way to study music and learn music theory. Unlike all other instruments – with the exception of other percussive pitch instruments, like the vibraphone and marimba – the piano is the only instrument you look directly at the notes your playing. Even the guitar is not as cut and dry. There is one and only one key for each pitch. And they are laid out in a very visible black and white color scheme, making it much easier to see what you’re doing. Learning the piano also makes learning other instruments less difficult.

The nuances in musical expression and an overall good understanding of the music itself are essential to building a mutual ground for a musical collaboration and along with the acquisition of the music score and a conceptualisation of the music, I hope that I can help others achieve their musical goals.

During my lessons I pay extreme attention to the piano technique, focusing on relaxing all the body in order to play fluently, with no tension but never losing the musicality of each music phrase and understanding the whole music piece we are playing with the right articulation and dynamic, thinking about what we want to express in each music piece.
