Activity description

ENTRY REQUIREMENTS FOR STUDENTS: It is the responsibility of participants to ensure they have downloaded and checked they have access to the Microsoft Teams Application. Beginner 1 or some basic prior experience of keyboard/piano, including reading music in the Treble and Bass Clef. OVERVIEW / INTRODUCTION TO THE COURSE: This course will take you over the basics of playing the keyboard, reading music and teaching skills that will be applicable to all genres of music. HOW THE COURSE WILL BE TAUGHT: We will begin with an initial presentation with everyone together (approximately 20-30 minutes). You will then be put into smaller groups so that the tutor can focus on individuals. When you are not working with the tutor, feel free continue practising or take a break. WHAT STUDENTS CAN EXPECT TO LEARN: Students will learn about key signatures, time signatures, scales, rhythms and playing with hands together. We will slowly learn progressively more difficult pieces, which will include some recognisable tunes, as well as some that will be unfamiliar. RESOURCES REQUIRED BY STUDENTS / ADDITIONAL COSTS You will need to have an electric keyboard or piano and be seated at it during the lesson. Resources will be sent in the form of a PDF, which you can print at home if you wish. This includes the music that we will be working from and the slides that we will use during the class. You may also wish to have a pen and paper at hand to take notes.
