Introduction to the piano
Here I hope to build on your curiosity. You will come in to contact with the piano, hear the sound and get a feel for the keys. I will explain to you all of the elements that make up a piano; where does the sound come from, what causes the sound in the first place, how do the pedals affect the sounds produced and how striking the keys with different pressure affects the sound.
We will then discuss the black and white keys and talk about bass and treble notes.
Once you are familiar with the different parts of the piano, I will play a short piece of music (perhaps one of songs you mentioned as your favourites) and gauge your reaction to the melodies produced. You’ll have read on the About Me page that I have a nice singing voice and we will probably be singing a duet at this stage. Lessons are fun with me as your teacher!
