Piano is an excellent first instrument for developing the musical skills of your
child. Piano education will provide your child with a source of life-long joy
and a sense of musical accomplishment.
Not a child? If you are an adult and you are thinking of learning to play a
musical instrument, you're not alone! Millions of adults are learning to play
the piano, using revolutionary new materials - for adult beginners!
Are you a church musician who can perform the hymns on the piano/organ as
written, but you cannot add fill-ins? Group improvisation instruction, in which
you learn to "expand" the written notation, is also provided on a weekly basis
or in workshop format (call for details about workshops).
A new hymn improvisation method has just been released. The method is based upon
research results from Dr. Rogers' doctoral study, and focuses upon developing
two skills that serve as the foundation for adding tasteful embellishments to
standard hymns and worship music. For a description of the hymn improvisation method, click here.
Research shows that beginning to intermediate students learn as well or better in piano groups with electronic keyboards as students who take costlier private lessons (when a student reaches a certain proficiency in playing, however, private lessons are recommended).
