Courses

At East London Piano, we offer a number of different programmes/courses to suit your individual needs and goals. Please read the options below, you will be asked to choose your preferred programme  when registering with us.

 

 

For children

 

Early years:

Select the one that works for your child, from an array of tailored programmes for young beginners. Wunderkeys is a one-of-a-kind, math-infused preschool piano programme for ages 3-5 that has been successfully operating for 6 years. It gives children a head start in music and maths and requires no prior music or piano experience! And did we mention it’s really fun too?! Contact us for more details

Dogs and Birds is a method created for slightly older children and teaches them how to play basic melodies on the piano initially with separate hands. Based on Kodaly ‘s approach, Dogs and Birds offers a fun, engaging and effective way of communicating rhythm, pitch and building a strong inner ear.

In conjunction with Wunderkeys and Dogs & Birds, we use a number of props, iPad applications and games to ensure your child has the best start in music!

 

Play easy:

For older children (ages 7/8+) who are just starting their music adventure.

We understand that some students need to feel relaxed when it comes to their music lessons. To help your child get the best out of their classes, we offer several easy, fun-packed music experiences. Without compromising on the learning, we teach theory, technique and general musicianship in a laid-back, enjoyable style without focusing on targets. Students who follow our Play easy pathway are still eligible to perform at student concerts and graded exams are an option, in a more relaxed setup.

 

Play pro:

For older children (ages 7/8+) who are just starting their music adventure/or may have some experience and require more from their piano schooling.

 It’s great to play music for fun. But some people want to go further, using professional practice methods to find joy in the overall achievement. Ambitious and hard-working students will be delighted by our superbly qualified teachers, themselves renowned musicians and acclaimed performers. The way we see it, a top-notch, classical experience should be part of anybody’s essential musical development. Reach grades 1-8 with top marks, participate in festivals, competitions and masterclasses, perform in prestigious venues and more!

 

Play cool:

 

For older children (10 years +) who have some experience of classical piano and who wish to explore the jazz side of things! Our jazz specialist will teach them improvisation, harmonic structure, playing by ear alongside technique and general musicianship. Jazz grades are also an option. Please note this pathway is focused on jazz piano and doesn’t cover classical repertoire.

Play anywhere (Skype sessions):

If you are unable to come to our studios, there exists the option of Skype lessons which are offered at a reduced rates (30 pounds for 45mins). We can effectively teach you wherever you may be via the internet and provide coaching in theory, playing, ear training etc. For those who prefer home visits at their space, this can be arranged at an extra cost – please contact us to discuss.

 

 

 

For adults

 

Play basic:

A course for beginners and returning learners who haven’t played in a while and need to polish their skills. At ELP, we have put a great deal of thought into creating opportunities for adult students.  Using materials created specifically for your age and ability, our teachers really understand your position and specific goals, and will work with you to create a realistic and enjoyable programme of study. Please note that a lot of our beginner students have gone on to sit graded exams with great success. Others prefer to play for enjoyment and personal betterment.

Play advanced: 

For those of you who already possess a good technical and musical background in piano, we can help you complete your grades or prepare you for diplomas, auditions and other opportunities, or just focus on improving your technique, repertoire and interpretation skills.

 

Play cool:

For adults who have some experience of classical piano and wish to focus on chordal playing, songwriting, learning structure, improvisation and want to also learn to play their favourite songs! This pathway is especially favourited by music producers, DJs and generally adult learners who are not as interested in the rigorous technique that comes with classical repertoire. Please note that a combined course is an option, jazz/songwriting alongside classical piano technique. Speak to us if you are unsure about what is best for you.

Play anywhere (Skype sessions):

If you are unable to come to our studios, there exists the option of Skype lessons which are offered at a reduced rates (30 pounds for 45mins).
