WHAT YOU’LL LEARN

In piano lessons at HCM, you’ll learn songs from a broad range of musical genres, such as pop, soul and rock, and will cover techniques including chord progressions, arpeggios and improvisation. Your lessons will be different every single week, and will be adapted to your level, interests and the size of your class.

KEYBOARD TECHNIQUES

Here’s just a small selection of the techniques you’ll learn in HCM’s piano and keyboard lessons:

  • Rock, pop, soul, funk and jazz styles
  • Chord theory in the context of live performance
  • Improvisational skills
  • Notation and band chart reading
  • Developing sight-reading and session skills
  • Working with other rhythm section players
  • Embedded music theory and knowledge
  • And finally… songs! These are specifically tailored to help you explore the keyboard techniques you’re learning about and put them into context in bands and ensembles

PERFORMANCE LESSONS

In addition to weekly music lessons, HCM pianists and keyboard players are encouraged to take part in our weekly Band Coaching Lessons. These classes will teach you performance techniques and how to play as part of a band. Each week, you’ll jam in a group with students from other HCM instrument lessons, and at the end of term everyone will get together for a grand performance at HCM’s highly anticipated concert.

AWARDS

We know you’re keen to see yourself improve as much as we are, so we offer our students RSL graded instrument exams. Our lessons follow the RSL graded syllabus for piano from Debut to Grade 8, and teenage students can link our graded lessons with other activities, such as the Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme or music at GCSE level.
