Piano Unbound. Piano learning method, a course for beginners
What you’ll learn
Play beginner and intermediate level pieces within weeks and even more, you will be able to play and understand your own favorite pieces
Understand rhythm, melody, form, harmony, counterpoint and how all these techniques interact in your interpretation.
Learn about imitations, reflections, inversions, variations, canon and other composition techniques.
Even more than just playing, you will be able to express yourself and imprint your own personality to a piece.
I am writing this course hoping to expose the newly-excited, first-time student to a musical world far, far larger than that taught in traditional courses, unbound by the rigors of analytic note-learning and theory notions memorization structured in an organic, easy to follow set of lessons.
This course uses pieces composed by Bela Bartok in Vol. I of his wonderful collection entitled “Mikrokosmos”, a set of six volumes, 153 delightful pieces.
You will advance as a pianist right from the start, with all concepts explained through targeted musical sessions, developing your inner ear and artistic intelligence in parallel with mastering piano dexterity.
The end of the course will bring you a level of understanding of musical pieces of not only score-reading and analysis but how to go deeper than the score and add your own piano interpretation into the musical act.
Who this course is for:
- Students of all ages and and backgrounds are welcome as long as they are committed to short, but constant piano practice
- Lesson Proper
