Classical Piano Lessons
Classical piano lessons emphasize on sheet music reading skills along with extensive scale and arpeggio studies for accurate reading and agility. In Kenya, this is commonly referred to as G-Clef learning – Layman language. The level of complexity an accomplished classical pianist can read and perform is incredible. However, one disadvantage of exclusively training in classical piano lessons is pronounced difficulty with playing by ear and general improvisation. In Kenya, especially, most Piano playing platforms require a great deal of playing by ear. We’ve seen plenty of accomplished classical pianists be able to play classical pieces perfectly but struggle to play “Happy Birthday” with chords and improvisation by ear. No joke.
Contemporary Piano Lessons
If you want to play common and popular music on the Piano, this refers to songs you hear in Church, on the Radio and most of your favorite music on record, contemporary Piano lessons suits you. You will still learn to read music as a foundation but as you advance, focus on how to play by ear, compose, arrange, and improvise. Students will also learn to read chord symbols and use chord progressions fluently so they can read simplified charts. These abilities are essential for playing in African styles, Gospel, R&B, Jazz, Pop and Rock styles. The downside to contemporary Piano learning is that it is considered musically shallow because it does not go deep in to site reading and Musical interpretations. Accomplished contemporary Piano players have breathtaking creativity and will impress whenever they play. This has great application in Church, Studios, Concerts and general performances in front of an audience.
